Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment Program

For Children and Adolescents

children and adolescentsThe Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (CAT) program at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute offers a 4 - 6 week, comprehensive clinical evaluation for ages 5-17 in a safe and secure environment. Our multi-disciplinary treatment team will assess psychiatric and medical conditions, provide behavioral & educational assessments, psychological testing, therapy, and when necessary, address chemical dependency issues. The program includes:

  • Psychiatric evaluation provided by our board certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists with diagnostic expertise in Major Depression, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Reactive Attachment, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Substance Abuse
  • Psychological & Neuropsychological testing and therapy provided by our PhD psychologists
  • Medical evaluation provided by our board certified pediatricians
  • A collaborative approach constructed by our complete multi-disciplinary team consisting of child psychiatrists, pediatricians, psychologists, nurses, licensed clinical social workers, recreational therapists, art therapists, music therapists and education specialists
  • Active family involvement throughout the assessment period
  • Inpatient care in our beautiful, state-of-the-art facility, which includes secure outdoor play areas and a ROPES challenge course
  • Appropriate and evidenced based treatments throughout the program with daily contact with the psychiatrist
Too often, children and adolescents enter treatment programs without an accurate diagnosis or a clear cut understanding of what is to be gained by the treatment.  The CAT program will help provide an understanding of the child/adolescent and create a dynamic, individualized treatment plan that will facilitate the most appropriate match of community resources with the child/adolescent’s specific needs.
