Child (4-12) and Adolescent (13-17) Services

When children or adolescents experience acute behavioral health symptoms and need intensive inpatient care, Rockford Center in Newark, DE provides a safe, secure environment where patients will receive the highest quality of care. Our experienced professional staff combine compassion with skill, closely monitoring behavior and medication, consistently tending to the needs of each patient.

Inpatient Treatment

Children’s Inpatient Services are tailored to meet the special needs of very young individuals, 4 to 12 years of age, who have acute psychiatric or behavioral problems.

We tailor our Adolescent Inpatient Services to meet the unique needs of individuals from 13 to 17 years of age. The program goal is to help adolescents and their families clarify problems and issues, opening the way to personal growth and family stability. We help strengthen self confidence in a structured environment that promotes skill building and helps youth develop and strive for realistic expectations that will lead to healthier relationships and a more fulfilling life.

Both Adolescent and Children’s Inpatient Services include:
