Children’s Crisis Intervention Services is an inpatient unit providing high quality and compassionate care for children and adolescents, between the ages of 5 and 17, who have been assessed to be in need of a safe and supportive, inpatient level of care.

Children’s Crisis Intervention Services is designated by the New Jersey Division of Child Behavioral Health Services as a 17-bed child and adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit.

Children’s Crisis Intervention Services multidisciplinary treatment team – which includes board certified child psychiatrists, masters prepared clinicians, registered nurses, and bachelor level behavioral health counselors – works together to provide the best possible care and the safest environment for our patients. Patients are offered both individual and group therapies, and the individual’s family is actively involved in all aspects of the care provided. The services offered through the Children’s Crisis Intervention Services treatment program include medication and medication monitoring, discharge planning, and linking the patient and family to the appropriate services available.

If you are a provider or would like to make a referral to any of our inpatient services please contact our 24 hour access hotline at 201-983-9575 (this is providers only).
