At the Brattleboro Retreat we believe that inherent in each child is the desire to be accepted by others and to do well.
- We utilize a strength-based, trauma-informed and resiliency model of care, with a focus on deliberate and sensitive support for children and their families as they learn new ways of understanding and managing their lives.
- Our Children’s Inpatient Program employs a multidisciplinary team approach that is short term, strength-based, and skills oriented.
A typical stay lasts from 4 to 14 days. We recognize that successful treatment and return to the community depends on effective collaboration with families and community providers. That’s why both during and after treatment:
- We engage in ongoing communication with families.
- We work to coordinate services with community providers.
