Inpatient Behavioral Health

Inpatient behavioral healthcare provides a high level of service designed to treat patients experiencing an acute episode of behavioral illness in a safe, protected environment. The first step after admission is for patients to partner with our interdisciplinary specialist team to complete a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Our multidisciplinary team has many years of experience in behavioral health services and consists of board-certified psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and licensed therapists. You’ll receive the support and resources you need to begin your path to recovery

Following the initial evaluation, our professionals work with the patient and significant others (as appropriate) to create an individual treatment plan focusing on recovery. This treatment plan will include group therapy. Psychoeducation and facilitated-skill development groups are an essential part of our program. Our goal is to provide patients with a safe environment during which they and their clinical team can explore treatment options. This includes medication management of their illness and developing skills to manage symptoms. The goal is to remain safe and to continue to function following discharge as treatment continues in the outpatient setting.
