The adult psychiatric unit is most appropriate for individuals suffering from mental health crises associated with depression, mood, anxiety, psychosis or other psychiatric disorders. Our clinical approach encourages the patient to be an active participant in their treatment. Therapies utilize principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy and mindfulness techniques.
The daily schedule includes group therapies, recreational activities and wellness education. Patients are treated in an intensive therapeutic environment that provides medical and psychiatric stabilization and 24-hour nursing care.
Our inpatient treatment programs provide psycho-social assessment, psychiatric evaluation, medication management, group and family therapies, recreational therapy, life-skills training, medication education, nutritional counseling, 24-hour nursing care and discharge planning. By discharge, we hope to have fostered stability and recovery, identified the underlying issue(s), provided a diagnosis/diagnoses, as well as identified and helped our patients begin a path of success.
