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