Adolescent Inpatient Unit

The Marian Drummond Adolescent Unit admits adolescents who have turned 13 (but are not yet 18 years of age) for assessment and treatment.

These young people may be experiencing emotional, behavioural or social difficulties and have usually had some outpatient treatment. A high proportion of the consumers are admitted in crisis. The 11-bed unit has high dependency and seclusion capacity and is based in the Marian Drummond building at the Austin Hospital.
