Inpatient Psychiatric Treatment

Inpatient psychiatric care is a high level of care treating adolescents and adults in a safe and caring environment. Our inpatient units are newly renovated and provide a welcoming and effective treatment environment. We have separate distinct inpatient services for adults and adolescents.

Patients come for inpatient care when their behavior has become unsafe at home such as after attempting a suicide, experiencing suicidal ideation or when symptoms become so severe they can not be managed with existing services. The primary goal of treatment is stabilization of symptoms and developing a plan for transitioning to less intensive services.


Adult Inpatient Care

The adult treatment unit provides psychiatric care and medical intervention for adults aged 18 years and older with a variety of conditions such as major depressive and anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress, eating disorders and suicidal ideation. The program can also address the needs of patients with co-occurring substance use disorders.

Treatment programs takes place on the unit and is delivered through an integrated approach to wellness combining individual treatment, group therapies and medication to help patients regain their health.

Adolescent Inpatient Care

Our adolescent inpatient unit is a specialized treatment program tailored to the needs of adolescents ages 13 to 17 years old. We treat adolescents with a variety of behavioral diagnoses including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and/or psychosis. During each adolescent’s stay, we focus on crisis stabilization so that the adolescent can move back into their home and community as quickly and as safely is possible.

What Staff and Clients Say

My niece was cared for at Miravista. She says that the staff were outstanding and listened to her. In particular, one of her counselors was a life force in creating engagement opportunities for her and all patients. She will return to MiraVista if she ever needs help again.

Family Member, Adult Psychiatry

I have been to many therapists and attended many groups but the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) program is by far the most helpful and relatable. The entire team makes you feel SO SAFE that it is hard not to engage and open up about very difficult problems and hurdles you have to get through. The team provides clear direction to help me develop my path to improvement.

Patient, Outpatient Recovery Services

Thank you for saving my life. This program has helped me more than any other program. Counselors are extremely helpful and caring.

Patient, Opioid Treatment Program

Orientation, on-the-job training and education is the best I have experienced in my career.  From the moment I started, I felt supported and part of the team.

Melody, MiraVista Nurse

In MiraVista's recovery program I got a lot more information that I could concretely put into practice. It was very helpful that many of the program's staff are in recovery and can relate in a way that people who don't deal with addiction or haven't dealt with it, can't.
