Psychiatric Services for Adolescents
Chicago Lakeshore Hospital provides inpatient hospital services and an intensive outpatient program for adolescents with psychiatric, emotional, chemical dependency, and behavior disorders. The treatment experience provides the adolescent with a secure and structured environment to work through developmental, educational, psychological and social problems.
The treatment team works closely with families, schools and the appropriate referral sources in meeting the needs of the adolescent patient and his/her family.
Program Features and Services May Include
- Individual therapy
- Group or play therapy

- Case management
- Accredited school program
- Medication management
- Intensive Outpatient Program
We believe a team approach is the most effective method to deliver quality care. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and often includes a licensed therapist, psychiatric nurse, activity/recreational therapist, clinical social worker, and mental health counselors. The treatment team offers not only their clinical expertise and experience, but also their concern and compassion.
Private and confidential assessments and referral information are provided at no charge 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the Chicago Lakeshore Hospital's Intake Department.
