Therapeutic Hospital Treatment Program for AMPS
The Therapeutic Hospital Treatment Program is a rigorous program that includes:
- Five hours of therapeutic physical and occupational therapy daily
- Psychotherapy, music and art therapy, to address stress, develop coping strategies, promote relaxation and provide program support.
- Emotional support for patients and their families.
Length of stay is typically 4 weeks, but we base this on your child’s individual needs. While programming is designed to meet the individual needs of the child, it is an expectation that the child will participate fully in all aspects of treatment.
Family participation is a vital part of treatment and family members are expected to be actively involved in all family-centered programming. This includes individual weekly meetings with the centers social worker, weekly parent group, family meetings, and more.
After completion of the hospital treatment program, children and families are seen in our pain clinic for follow-up.
