Inpatient Psychiatric Services
In today’s world, we all can experience mental health concerns. Psychiatric conditions can sometimes impair our ability to function in our daily lives. The National Alliance for Mental Illness cites that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from a severe mental illness. Illnesses such as depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and addictive behaviors can become so severe that hospital treatment for acute may be necessary.
The inpatient treatment program at Hendricks Behavioral Hospital is designed to address the immediate needs of people having a mental health crisis. Our state-of-the-art psychiatric hospital provides a safe setting for the stabilization and intervention of serious illness. Stabilization care is administered in a highly monitored environment by psychiatrists, nurses, advanced nurse practitioners, licensed counselors, social workers and trained mental health technicians. In addition to immediate stabilization of symptoms, other vital components of hospitalization include diagnosis, medication management, and detailed after-care planning.
Treatment begins with a comprehensive set of assignments which lead to the creation of an individual treatment plan. This plan is created with the patient and their family and the entire treatment team when appropriate. All patients receive a full medical evaluation as part of their admission process including labwork and medical diagnostics. All patients participate in various evidence-based therapies and follow a full schedule of activities while hospitalized. Some of the evidence-based program we utilize include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Illness Management, Recovery Matrix, Trauma based care. As the patient begins to stabilize, we then look to our next step in recovery, after-care, and continuing care for the patient. We offer other levels of care, including partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. The partial program allows stable patients to attend programming five days a week, and Intensive outpatient programming is offered three days a week. We also work with local community partners to provide needed services to support the patient when they return home. Direct referral to those services is critical to the long-term success of the patient.
