Programs for Children

The Pavilion Behavioral Health System offers acute inpatient hospitalization, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization services for children ages 4 through 11. Our programs are led by an interdisciplinary treatment team in a secure, nurturing environment and focus on a progressive, comprehensive approach to care.

Inpatient Care

The main goal of inpatient hospitalization at The Pavilion is to stabilize your child’s current crisis. The hospital stay is not intended to provide long-term therapy and generally lasts approximately 10–14 days. During your child’s stay, we’ll develop a plan for outpatient support. This will enable your child to continue their healing process after discharge.

When your child is hospitalized, it is important that you — their parent or guardian — participate in their treatment on a regular basis. After all, we will need your valuable input to give your child the best possible care. If you have any concerns or feedback regarding your child’s hospitalization, we encourage you to call our Patient Advocate Line at 217-373-1744.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient support for your child is offered through our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) and may include work with psychiatrists, therapists, school social workers, Screening, Assessment and Support Services (SASS) or others. Ongoing treatment and therapy will aim to address your child’s long-term needs.

Residential Treatment

The Pavilion’s Residential Treatment Center provides long-term treatment for youth ages 10 to 18 who are facing severe and chronic psychiatric disorders. With three 10-bed units, residential treatment offers specific behavioral plans in a small group setting and gives patients an opportunity to get the support they need in a less restrictive environment.
