Our Inpatient Mental Health Services

Inpatient services help people in mental distress gain symptom control so they can move forward with treatment at an outpatient facility. During your inpatient stay, you or your loved one receives intensive one-on-one care from psychiatrists and other specialists as needed. Through group sessions, you learn communication and healthy coping strategies. Find out more about what to expect.

Services include:

  • Care for older adults and medically complex patients: Certified nursing assistants help with daily activities and provide basic medical care. This may involve feeding, bathing and monitoring for individuals on supplemental oxygen.
  • Relaxation and stress management: Yoga and meditation classes help clear your mind and improve self-awareness so you can focus on treatment. We also teach additional relaxation techniques, enabling you to manage future situations and lower your risk of crisis.
  • Additional inpatient programming: We help people dealing with co-occurring substance use and mental health issues through our dual diagnosis program. Active-duty military and veterans receive specialized inpatient care through our military program.
