The Adult Psychiatric Program serves men and women (age 18 and older) who suffer from a range of behavioral health issues. We provide intensive acute stabilization for depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, and other mental health conditions.
Our patients learn strategies to regulate emotions, improve social and occupational functioning, and increase their quality of life. Discharge planning services are offered to help them smoothly transition to outside care providers.
Our Psychiatric/Dual-Diagnosis Inpatient Program provides 24-hour intensive nursing and medical management alongside group therapies. Educational family therapies are also offered as part of the program. This integrated treatment approach focuses on helping patients achieve long-term stability for their psychiatric condition.
