Inpatient Psychiatric Treatment

An inpatient psychiatric stay lasts a minimum of 72 hours (three days), while the average stay is four to five days.

During this time, treatment is focused on stabilizing the individual and preparing them for continued treatment.

Upon discharge, they should expect to be referred to other services, typically in an outpatient setting.

Adults or adolescents may be admitted for psychiatric treatment if they are believed to be a danger to themselves or others, demonstrate deficits in self-care or show signs of mental or emotional deterioration.

We help individuals with mental health issues, including:

  • Mood disorders, such as acute depression
  • Bipolar disorder (manic depression)
  • Anxiety disorders, including panic attacks and post-traumatic stress
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Psychosis and schizophrenia
