Promises at Mill Creek- Now Accepting Referrals

Who We Are

Promises at Mill Creek Acute Hospitalization Program is a full-day treatment program available to children ages 5-13 with emotional, behavioral and social needs that significantly impair their ability to learn and participate constructively in their home, school or community. Referrals are accepted directly from CBH, inpatient hospitals, crises response centers or alternative assessment sites. Participants MUST live in Philadelphia County and have active Medical Assistance (MA).


What We Do
Through a relationship building model, our clinical team collaborates with caregivers and all those directly involved in the participants life; such as school counselors and other service providers. Within this collaborative system of coordination, communication, and services, the participants will be able to receive a high level of care.
All services, interventions and activities are trauma informed, strength based and person first. These include;
• Psychiatric evaluation, consultation and medication monitoring
• Individual therapy tailored to the child’s/family’s needs
• Pyscho-educational groups
• Simulated classroom seating and activities, including a minimum of one hour of academic instruction per day
• Case management/care coordination
• Creative therapies
• Daily recreational therapy
• Referrals to-and consultation with- community resources


How We Continue to Support
Our clinical team begins to plan for successful discharge during the initial intake phase. This includes a plan for continuity of treatment (therapy, medication management, etc.) and participant and family support, in order for them to be successful in a lower level of care. The Case Manager will meet with all involved parties, including school representatives, providing a complete discharge summary in preparation for transition back into the traditional school setting.

Why is Foot Care Important for Diabetics?

As a diabetic, it is especially important that you care for your feet properly and pay attention to any changes that occur. High blood glucose levels can cause damage to the nerves that lead to your feet (also known as diabetic neuropathy). When the nerves are damaged it is possible to develop wounds on your feet that go unnoticed. These wounds can lead to serious infection and possibly amputation. Taking the proper steps to care for your feet can prevent this from happening.
