The Inpatient Behavioral Health unit is located on 4 Main. It consists of an 18 bed voluntary unit and a 19 bed involuntary (short term care facility, STCF) unit. The unit serves adults suffering from acute episodes of major psychiatric disorders that are so severe that they require a more restrictive environment than that available in the community.

Services include:

  • Psychiatric Evaluation
  • Short and Extended Acute Psychiatric Care
  • Nursing, Psychosocial and Activity Assessments
  • Group and Individual Counseling
  • Medication Education and Management
  • Substance Abuse Services
  • Recreation Therapy
  • Family Counseling
  • Discharge Planning

The individuals admitted to the Inpatient Behavioral Health unit are in an acute phase of their illness. They come to us from many settings such as private homes, boarding homes, group homes, and homeless situations. We provide a therapeutic environment focused on their overall wellness and recovery. In addition to our highly skilled behavioral health team, physical therapy, respiratory therapy and services to address the individual’s metabolic issues are available based upon assessment of individualized needs and plan of care.

Discharge planning is a team effort involving the individual and their natural supports. Referrals to aftercare services are carefully selected. Our goal is to successfully assist the individual during the acute phase of their illness while simultaneously preparing them to reach their full potential once they leave the inpatient unit.
