Short-Term Residential Program Overview

Our Short-Term Residential Treatment Program is designed uniquely for children and adolescents who need a place to refocus, gain skills and grow.

Short-Term Residential Program Goals

In accordance with our mission of promoting hope, healing, and wholeness, the goals of the Child & Adolescent Short-Term Residential program at WellSpan Philhaven are to:

  • Provide individualized, culturally-relevant residential psychiatric treatment for each youth near their community so that the family and community may actively participate in the treatment process.
  • Provide an intensive, multi-level treatment environment designed to promote skill and goal attainment for residents who have experienced multiple treatment failures.
  • Provide 24-hour supervision and a highly structured, treatment-intensive, non-inpatient environment to enable the youth to develop a level of functioning that will allow a safe and successful transition to less-restrictive, community-based setting.

Residential Treatment Facilities

Boys Campus West Residential Treatment Facility

Our program for boys has a maximum capacity of ten residents, between the ages of 12-17, admitted to the program at any one time.

Girls Campus Residential Treatment Facility

Our program for girls has a maximum capacity of nine residents, between the ages of 12-17, admitted to the program at any one time.


Length of Treatment

In our short-term residential programs, the length of stay (LOS) will usually range from 4 to 6 months. The length of treatment will be tailored to meet the individual's and family's needs. Should a resident not be able to achieve the identified treatment goals within a 4-month time frame, then this will be reviewed by the resident and her treatment team to discuss continuation in the program.
