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.
