Cumberland Hospital - Chronic Illness Admissions

Cumberland’s Chronic Illness Program provides a structured environment for medical supervision and treatment of the underlying emotional, social and behavioral challenges preventing successful self-management. Our program helps patients learn healthy ways to live with their illness.

The admission criteria are as follows:

  • A chronic illness diagnosis
  • 2-22 years of age
  • Inability to function independently at an age-appropriate level in any of the following areas:
    • self-care
    • mood stability
    • school

Individuals may exhibit a specific pattern of self-destruction and behaviors inconsistent with responsible management of their chronic illness.
