The adult inpatient psychiatric services provide short-term admission for intensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment to stabilize individuals in crisis. While hospitalized, patients will work with a multi-disciplinary team headed by a psychiatrist who will design and implement an individualized treatment plan, including 24-hour nursing care, psychopharmacological interventions and a full range of psychosocial interventions. Treatment may involve psychological and behavioral components, medication management, family education and participation in group therapy. Involvement of the family and outside treaters is a crucial part of the treatment process. Internists are available on a consulting basis should problems arise during an inpatient stay.
Discharge planning meetings are held with family and other support persons to allow patients to move as quickly as possible to another level of care or other appropriate aftercare program.
For admission options, please call our Intake Department.
