What it is

Secure Inpatient care (SCIP and SAIP) is designed for children and adolescents who need longer term support and intense therapy services. Trillium is the only provider of Secure Inpatient treatment for children and adolescents in Oregon. This service is considered to be a state hospital level of care and therefore all referrals must come through the state’s Health Systems Division. Children participate in individual and family therapy, therapeutic skills groups in the milieu, and school in a contained classroom. This program is highly supervised due to the intensity of the children’s needs.

How it is funded

All referrals must come through the state’s Health Services Division, who fund the service.

How we measure success

When children are in our residential treatment facility, our ultimate goal is prepare each child to return to their community safely and with the necessary skills to manage their mental health challenges. Each child is given an Individualized Plan of Care, which outlines areas of focus in treatment as well as long- and short-term goals to measuring the client’s progress in treatment. Goals are reviewed in formal meetings to discuss and review treatment progress and potential discharge from.
