Inpatient Care

Our 12-bed inpatient unit located in Union Hospital on the fourth floor offers a safe, caring and therapeutic environment. Under the direction of a psychiatrist, our multi-specialty team, using a person-centered approach to care, will formulate and implement an individual treatment plan tailored to your needs and desires for treatment. We believe in a holistic approach to your recovery that not only addresses your behavioral health concerns but also complements your physical health. In addition to your behavioral health team, you will have the opportunity to meet with a provider(s) to address any medical issues or concerns you may be experiencing and to coordinate necessary care as needed. We encourage you to involve your loved ones in your care, as they can offer you additional support and encouragement during this time and throughout your recovery. With your consent, visiting hours are Monday – Friday from 6:00 PM – 7:00PM and on weekends and holidays from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

Outpatient Care

All of our providers are licensed mental health professionals and our physicians are board-certified in psychiatry and dedicated to helping you to restore to your highest potential.

Intensive Outpatient Program
