Our Programs

Our focus is not on problems, it’s on people. We treat children, adolescents, adults and seniors.


PIW’s Youth Program specializes in the evaluation and intensive treatment of children ages 10 through 17 who suffer from developmental and/or psychiatric illnesses. Each child has an individualized treatment plan designed for him or her which includes medical, psychological developmental, educational, social and family assessments. Psychotherapy, education sessions and support groups involve parents and other family members in the therapeutic process.
