KidsPeace’s outpatient mental health clinic in conjunction with Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown, Pa., now serves adults as well as children. Over the years of treating children and adolescents, we have learned that parents and other caregivers can often benefit from our services as well to improve the overall functioning of the family. The holistic approach at Orchard Behavioral Health allows us to care for people ages 3 to 65 under one roof.
The clinic is structured as an urgent care walk-in model, which allows us to be responsive to immediate needs of the community. This expedites the process of initiating care, avoids long emergency room waits and allows KidsPeace staff to assess the client, stabilize any crisis and make an appropriate level of care recommendation. In turn, it allows emergency rooms to focus their efforts on treating physical injuries rather than mental health concerns.
