Welcome to Hilside, where every day is a new day and a new beginning. Since our beginning in 1888, Hillside’s mission has been to care for children and families in need. Our programs focus on the strengths of our kids and encourage the growth and improvement they need to become future self-sustaining citizens. Hillside provides quality, cost-effective treatment and education to severely emotionally disturbed children and their families. Services are provided in the least restrictive environment possible in accordance with the needs of the patient.

Hillside provides numerous treatment options for children and adolescents ages 7-21 experiencing difficulties with emotional and behavioral issues. Hillside's primary treatment modality is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and all Therapists who provide treatment are intensively trained in DBT. Additionally, all adjunct staff have extensive DBT training. Additional primary treatment modalities include cutting edge specialty modalities such as Theraplay, Art Therapy and Animal Assisted Therapy. Our highly specialized staff recognize how important it is to understand the needs of the children and adolescents we serve, as well as the families and communities the children come from.

Every child at Hillside follows a course of treatment specially designed for them and in the least restrictive program possible. Our continuum allows children and their families to move along our programming of Residential, Day Programming/Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient services as well as Community Intervention Programs and Therapeutic Foster Care as needed.

Family involvement is an integral part of our treatment and parents are encouraged to visit and participate in treatment as often as possible. In bringing the family into the treatment and on campus frequently, it is our goal to provide the families the necessary tools to help return and maintain their child in the home. At the heart of our programming the focus continues to be on the children as well as the families we serve.

With 125 years of caring for children and families, Hillside is deeply committed to helping every child who enters our door. It is our mission to provide the best care possible and ensure our children reach every level of success that they desire.
