As part of our Behavioral Health Services, individuals who require 24-hour treatment for psychiatric problems and/or issues with chemical dependency can find help from St. Joseph Hospital. With a full range of psychiatric services, our program offers inpatient treatment for individuals 18 years or older.

Upon admission, caregivers develop a “Plan of Care” personalized to meet a patient’s medical and psychosocial needs. Once treatment is initiated, patients work with their multidisciplinary team through:

  • Medical supervision
  • Medication management
  • Patient education
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Treatment for substance dependence

Individual, group and family therapy is also part of treatment. To help ensure a smooth transition back home or in continuing outpatient treatment, we provide comprehensive aftercare planning, with referrals to the appropriate community services.

Patients may be admitted voluntarily or involuntarily. If a patient is a danger to self, a danger to others or is gravely disabled, involuntary admission may occur.

Individuals who are considered for inpatient treatment assessments include those who:

  • Actively exhibit symptoms of major mental illness
    • Including depression and psychotic thinking
  • Plan to harm themselves or others
  • Are incapable of performing functions required to care for themselves due to mental illness

The Inpatient unit provides treatment for a variety of behavioral treatment needs, including:

  • Psychiatric diagnoses
  • Medically supervised detoxification from alcohol or other chemical dependence
  • Co-occurring (Dual Diagnosis) treatment for individuals with both a behavioral and chemical dependency diagnoses
  • Eating Disorders assessment for treatment and referral
  • Treatment for individuals on a 5150 involuntary hold due to danger to self, danger to others or grave disability
  • Medical and Neurological evaluation as required through the assessment process
