Child and Adolescent Services
The ESCSB believes that children and their presenting problems can only be understood in the context of their family, significant caretakers, and the other social environments in which they live and function. Therefore any treatment will usually involve at least one family member who can help support the child's therapy goals.
ESCSB providers strongly encourage the participation of parents in the parenting program which operates in conjunction with the child's services. The exception to this may be an adolescent who is legally able to sign for their own treatment and does not wish for their caretaker to be involved.

The hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
The Child /Adolescent Outpatient Department is coordinated by licensed clinicians with other clinicians and case managers working under their supervision. When individual therapy is part of the treatment plan, it is designed to be short term in duration and focused on solving specific issues identified during the assessment.
Individual therapy is viewed as a stepping stone for individual's to be able to participate in the group therapy modality. To this end, outpatient department also conducts group therapy for areas of common concern such as anger management and post traumatic stress disorder as well as on-going support groups for individuals struggling with anxiety and depression.
