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 symptom management.

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.

We focus on a practical approach to solving problems. We believe that effective treatment incorporates a variety of psychological and behavioral techniques, including the use of proper medication and patient participation in therapeutic groups.
