Child & Adolescent Inpatient Services

Each year, Spring Harbor Hospital treats approximately 800 young people from cities and towns throughout Maine and New England.

Child Services

Our 12-bed unit is specially designed for the care of children who experience mental illness. In general, admitted patients are children who are an imminent risk to themselves or others, or are unable to function at a lower level of care.

Our team of pediatric mental health professionals works closely with children, their families, and other caregivers to achieve maximum treatment results. Unit programming includes comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, medication management, individual and family therapy, educational and consultation services for parents, and on-site academic instruction.

Adolescent Services

Our 14-bed units serves teens who require acute mental healthcare and substance use intervention. Typically, patients are adolescents who present an imminent risk to themselves or others, or are unable to function at a lower level of care, due to their psychiatric symptoms.

Programming includes comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, individual and family therapy, recreational and group therapy, medication management, parent education, and on-site academic instruction.

The multidisciplinary patient care team specializes in the treatment of diagnoses common to this age group, including anxiety, psychotic or depressive disorders, oppositional/defiant disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Each adolescent patient room features ample natural light, a private bath, and a window view of our recreational areas, reflecting pool, or tranquil wooded grounds. The spacious family consultation rooms and teen skill-building areas are conveniently located nearby.
