services02Lighthouse Care Center has recently added a new line of service offering acute psychiatric treatment for children and adolescents. This unit provides a safe, nurturing environment for children and adolescents to heal. Lighthouse proudly features Dr. Rupa Shetty, Board Certified in Children and Adolescent Psychiatry, as the attending physician on this unit. Patients receiving treatment here will experience individual and group therapy to assist in the restructuring of thoughts and behaviors. Additionally, a comprehensive medication review is provided by Dr. Shetty removing unnecessary or contraindicating medication. Children and adolescents are encouraged to participate in recreational therapeutic activities within our newly renovated gymnasium and exterior courtyard.
