Parents, guardians, and immediate family members are encouraged to visit during scheduled visiting hours for the Child and Adolescent Intensive Treatment Unit and play an important role in a child or adolescent’s treatment and recovery. This involvement helps lead to successful treatment. Meetings with a patient’s parent or guardian take place regularly, and no contact will be made with other members of the family without parent or guardian consent.
Limiting visitors to two people at a time is recommended; if other visiting hours need to be arranged, you may speak with the patient’s doctor. Younger siblings may also visit but must be supervised at all times. Clergy, lawyers, and case workers are invited to visit as well.
The Rhode Island Mental Health Law requires that the identity and treatment of all patients be confidential during and after their treatment at Butler. Records are protected under Rhode Island State Law; Federal Regulation 42CFR, Confidentiality and Drug Abuse; and Federal HIPAA regulations. View Butler’s HIPAA Privacy Notice.
