DESOTO - Hickory Trail Hospital, a Psychiatric Solutions Inc. facility, recently announced the expansion of its youth services to include a dedicated pediatric inpatient unit for children ages 5-12.

"Building Blocks" will allow the facility to provide treatment for an additional 10 children in a specialized inpatient environment and provide services specific to children younger than age 13.

While Hickory Trail, an 86-bed private psychiatric hospital, has historically worked with children and adolescents ages 5-17, "Building Blocks" fills the demand from the local community for more specialized treatment.

  "Our new Building Blocks pediatric unit is a unique program for our area," said CEO Elicia Bunch.

"Building Blocks" utilizes an evidence-based curriculum of Trauma Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help children learn to cope with the difficult experiences they have encountered.
