Inpatient Psychiatric Care for Adults
Brooke Glen Behavioral Hospital’s inpatient mental health treatment program for adults and young adults, ages 18 and older, offers short-term care and stabilization for patients experiencing acute symptoms of mental and emotional distress. The adult psychiatric inpatient treatment program provides comprehensive psychiatric assessment, crisis stabilization, therapy, medication review, and rehabilitation for an array of psychiatric disorders.
The staff at our acute care psychiatric hospital works with patients individually to put together targeted treatment plans that tackle the issues they face. Patients and families (when appropriate) work with their treatment team to develop discharge and continuing care plans that help the patients maintain long-term wellness. Some of the mental health issues we treat include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Impulse control issues
- Mood disorders (depression/bipolar disorder)
- Situational crises
- Trauma-related issues
The primary mode of therapy in our adult inpatient mental health program is group therapy, using empirically-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), solution-focused techniques, and allied therapy including art, music, dance movement, and recreational therapies. Group psychotherapy is provided by our team of psychologists, doctoral-level graduate students, and allied therapists. Groups focus on areas such as mindfulness, distress tolerance skills, and skills for emotional regulation.
Patients at our inpatient behavioral health hospital are also seen daily by psychiatry and have dedicated Social Workers who are part of their individual treatment team. We also provide education and relapse prevention strategies for adults whose mental health issues are complicated by a co-occurring substance abuse disorder.
These patients will receive additional referrals once their psychiatric crisis is stabilized at our inpatient psychiatric hospital. We understand that addiction and substance use can often complicate or exacerbate mental health issues, so we will do what is necessary to make sure teens get the extra help they need to maintain sobriety as necessary.
As with all the programs at our inpatient mental health hospital, we understand that patients in the adult program will be returning home to families, work and communities. Family involvement is key to treatment at our psychiatric hospital since they will play vital roles in recovery. When possible, coordination of care is done with available family members and other supports involved.
