McLean-Franciscan Child Community-Based Acute Treatment Program
Encouraging hope and promoting everyday skills
Child and Family-Centered Care
The McLean-Franciscan Community-Based Acute Treatment (CBAT) program is a short-term residential program for children and adolescents ages 4-14. Typically, patients are referred as either a step down from a more intensive inpatient hospitalization or from the community as an alternative to a hospitalization stay.
The program serves a diverse group of children and families. Diagnoses include mood disorders, attention deficit disorder, depression, psychosis, anxiety disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Children receive group therapy, individual therapy, family sessions, and psychiatry medication services. The average length of stay for a patient is 2-3 weeks, but this varies due to the individual child’s needs and aftercare placement planning.
Services are provided through a multidisciplinary team, including a medical personnel, clinicians, and support staff.
