Herman Rosenblum, M.D., Adolescent Center

Established in 1985, the Herman Rosenblum, M.D., Adolescent Center is Delaware’s first psychiatric day treatment program for pre-adolescents and teens. In addition to intensive, individualized treatment of emotional, behavioral and developmental problems, the Rosenblum Center provides quality education to ensure that students stay current with their school work.

Helping youth with individual treatment

The Rosenblum Center has become a lifeline for adolescents who are having problems functioning at home, at school or with their peers. Each adolescent is different, and each comes to us for a different reason, such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder or conflict in the family.

The Rosenblum Center is available to students age 12–18 who live at home while attending the program, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Enrollment lasts from three to eight weeks. The staff works intensively with students throughout the day, providing treatment tailored to each individual. Our comprehensive program includes:

  • Biopsychosocial assessment.
  • Educational assessment.
  • Group therapy.
  • Individual therapy.
  • Family therapy.
  • Classroom instruction.
  • Recreation activities.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Groups focusing on drug and alcohol abuse.
  • Substance abuse assesment, therapy and referral.

Medication consultation

Some young people benefit from medication. Following a psychiatric evaluation—including meeting with the parents—options and recommendations are discussed. The teen’s response to medication and any side effects are closely monitored and communicated to parents.

Transition services

To ensure a successful transition after students leave the Rosenblum Center, teens and their parents are referred to highly qualified therapists in the community who will continue their treatment.

Focus on academics

The Rosenblum Center is one of the few day treatment programs with a strong academic component. We are dedicated to helping teens continue their education while receiving treatment.

Students receive an average of 2.5 hours of individualized instruction each day. Our educational coordinator reviews the student’s school history and gathers input from teachers and parents to determine what academic work needs to be completed. Educational testing may be provided.

As a student prepares to leave the program, our educational coordinator establishes support networks at his or her school, makes recommendations and develops a plan to transition the student back to school. Parents are actively involved with their child’s academic progress.
