Acute Care


JRI offers an array of short-term therapeutic programs that include our CBAT program and our Partial Hospitalization Program. Both have strong clinical and behavioral supports for adolescents, all genders, who are experiencing acute symptoms and emotional or psychiatric crisis. These services include both residential and day supports. We partner with families and youth in the programs to help stabilize the initial symptoms and create long-term plans designed to support long-term success. 

For more information about our acute short-term programs, please follow the links below or call our Service Navigator at (781) 559-4745.

These services might be right for you if
You or your child is experiencing acute emotional or psychiatric symptoms and needs safe and secure short-term support.
