David Lawrence Center Expands Children's Services

New Program Fills a Gap in Treatment for Adolescents in our Community

David Lawrence Center Expands Children's Services;
Children's Partial Hospitalization Program Now Open

  David Lawrence Center's new Children’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a voluntary day treatment program that provides intensive, medically supervised treatment for adolescents ages 13 to 17. The program assists adolescents who are exhibiting significant psychiatric symptoms which are causing severe distress and impairment in areas such as self-care, school functioning, and family or interpersonal relationships. 
The Children's PHP offers a safe environment for adolescents to learn healthy coping skills without the need for 24-hour inpatient or residential support. PHP is run by a multidisciplinary team including a pediatric psychiatrist, licensed clinicians and a nurse. Individuals participate in daily therapeutic, educational, wellness, and expressive therapy groups. PHP also includes weekly individual and family therapy as well as medication management visits.
The average length of stay is one to three weeks. Because PHP is a day program, participants do not attend school. DLC collaborates with Collier County Schools to develop educational resources on-site that meet the children’s needs including access to online school assignments. Upon completion, case managers work with families and school personnel to ensure successful transition back to school.

Referrals are welcome.
