Crisis Services for Children and Adolescents
The Crisis Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center provides intervention for psychiatric and drug and alcohol-related problems of children and adolescents. No matter the time of day, we're here to help. Available on-site at Crozer-Chester Medical Center or through a 24-hour crisis hotline (610-447-7600), professional clinicians at the Crisis Center provide round-the-clock, confidential support and treatment to children and adolescents.
The Crisis Center is open to individuals who reside or work in the catchment area assigned to Crozer-Keystone Health System by the Delaware County Office of Mental Health, including the western and southern areas of Delaware County. Others who are in need of help or evaluation and who contact Crisis Services are also served.
Our staff members help the individual, family or significant other assess the situation realistically and also assess the individual in crisis to develop recommendations that are most appropriate for the individual's situation.
If your child is admitted, additional services include:
- Addiction counseling
- 24 hour nursing supervision
- A licensed educator to help your child keep up with his or her school work
