Adult Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit

Our Adult Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit is designed for those patients who are either in a more acute phase of their illness or perhaps those with more chronic or persistent behavioral health problems.  The clinical staff who works with this population are dedicated to promoting the highest level of autonomy within a structured environment focused on safety and management of symptoms through medication stabilization, coordination with community resources, and life skill development.  This program is designed for an inpatient setting however when patients are ready to step down into a lower level of care they may be transitioned to one of our other specialty programs for adults according to their individual needs.
