Inpatient Psychiatric Treatment for Adults

Comprehensive, compassionate care for adults of all ages

Inpatient care for adults with behavioral and mental health disorders must be thoughtful and thorough. Our team of experts tailors care to each patient.

Adult inpatient care is for people 18 and older. Inpatient treatment generally starts with a visit to an emergency room, where patients are examined and referred for care. Once you are admitted, we start with an assessment to identify your unique concerns.

We provide inpatient psychiatric care for adults at the following locations:

What to expect during admission

You’ll first meet with an admissions specialist to complete paperwork. Next, we’ll help you settle into your room. We assign rooms to our patients based on:

  • Age
  • Current health status
  • Gender
  • Type of illness

The next step is to meet individually with the members of your care team. One of our psychiatrists leads each team, which may include:

  • Nurse practitioners
  • Nurses
  • Psychologists
  • Recreational and activities therapists
  • Social workers

These meetings will help us create your personalized treatment plan. You’ll be involved in planning your care, and we encourage you to allow loved ones to participate as well. However, we will respect your decision if you choose not to include family in your treatment.

What to expect from your treatment

Your personalized treatment plan may include some or all of the following:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy with other patients
  • Family therapy if you allow loved ones to take part in your care
  • Occupational and recreational therapies
  • Educational classes

Our treatment options involve the use of DBT, or dialectical behavioral therapy. This type of therapy focuses on increasing patients’ awareness of themselves and their emotions. The goal is to teach patients a better way of dealing with negative emotions and stress, as well as to improve relationships.
