Hospital Diversion

Offering an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, our Hospital Diversion services at Rebekah Children's Services is an unlocked, community-based therapeutic environment.

Our voluntary treatment setting provides care for a wide range of acute psychiatric crises to prevent hospitalization or provide a step-down transition from a hospital setting. The program is structured around placement within our facility combined with intensive individualized care from our team of licensed clinicians, psychiatrists, registered nurses, psycho educational instructors, and milieu staff. Our treatment team utilizes Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) combined with medication management to create a successful treatment and aftercare plan.
