About Southwood Psychiatric Hospital

Southwood offers three distinct levels of care for children and adolescents throughout the tri-state area. Southwood's acute psychiatric unit is co-ed for children ages 4-18. The intake and assessment departments are available 24 hours a day, and the hospital accepts almost all insurances and the uninsured.

Our residential services offer two unique programs. The first is a dual diagnosis program that consists of mental illness and a developmental disorder, autism spectrum disorder and/or an intellectual disability. Residents are grouped by age, cognitive ability, and functioning level into separate living areas. Southwood's SMB program serves males ages 12-18 with sexually maladaptive behavioral issues. This program provides a high level of structure and supervision while offering intensive sex offender-specific treatment based on the cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) model of relapse prevention.

Lastly, Southwood Family-Based Mental Health Services is designed to prevent hospitalization or out-of-home placement of a child or adolescent with emotional disturbances. The teams provide intensive therapeutic interventions and support services, operate from an underlying commitment of whatever it takes, and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These services are available in Beaver, Washington, Greene, and Fayette counties.
