Under the guidance of a behavioral health psychiatrist, our dedicated multidisciplinary
team implements a patient-centered inpatient mental health program to
specifically meet the needs of people with a wide range of mental health
and chemical dependency issues.
Inpatient hospitalization offers intensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment
in a comforting environment. After a patient is admitted, he or she receives
a comprehensive assessment of needs and strengths in essential areas of
functioning such as self-care, social skills, vocational adjustment and
A patient-specific treatment plan is then created, identifying the patient's
needs and the most effective way to reach recovery goals. When designing
the treatment plan, we encourage the involvement of the patient, the patient's
primary care physician and other professionals. The plan may include psychopharmacologic
regimens and a full range of psychological interventions. In order to
best meet the needs of our patients, referring physicians are encouraged
to provide treatment for their hospitalized patients.
