Child and Adolescent Services

The behavioral health of children and adolescents is an ever-growing concern for parents and the community at large. That’s why Atlantic Behavioral Health offers services specific to the needs of younger patients, giving them the opportunity to express their anxieties, develop coping skills and better deal with relationship issues.

Psychotherapy and Medication Management 

Our pediatric psychiatrists and licensed therapists provide children, teens, and young adults with individual, group and family therapy. Counseling that includes parental and family involvement is central to our program and highly encouraged. In addition, we can help our patients manage any medications they may be taking to treat their mental health condition.

Services are available at Morristown Medical Center Outpatient Services, Newton Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, and Hackettstown Medical Center.

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to support and treat teens who have significant struggles with emotional health, often leading to difficulty functioning in daily activities. Our group-based program utilizes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), an evidenced-based approach that is considered the gold-standard for treatment of emotion regulation in adolescents. We treat teens ages 13-17 experiencing mental health and substance misuse issues. Programming is offered 3 days per week, 3 hours a day.

Adolescent IOP is currently available at Hackettstown Medical Center.
