Admissions to CDT

Admission Criteria

Every child and situation is different, and need to be assessed before we can determine whether the STAR program is appropriate.  Patients are typically referred for the following reasons:

  • Frequent school suspensions 
  • Inability to remain in the classroom at school
  • Fighting with others
  • Frequent conflicts with adult authority figures
  • Threatening harm to self or others
  • Lack of improvement during outpatient mental health treatment
