Community-Based Acute Treatment (CBAT)
Boston Children’s Hospital at Waltham’s Community Based Acute Treatment (CBAT) Program is a 12-bed intensive, short-term acute residential unit for children and adolescents experiencing behavioral health difficulties.
They provide your child with treatment and stabilization in a structured setting that can act as an alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization or bridge between an inpatient hospitalization and home. They also work with families to help your child to learn living and coping skills in a safe community environment which supports a successful return to your family and school.
