Hospital-Based Services

Neuropsychiatric and Behavioral Medicine Unit

The Inpatient Psychiatric Service is a locked, 18-bed, self-contained unit which provides comprehensive and intensive therapeutic services for adults with functional and organic psychiatric disorders severe enough to require inpatient care. The primary focus of this unit is to provide treatment for emergent symptoms and to prepare patients for follow-up treatment in a less restrictive setting.

The service's treatment approach places a strong emphasis on a therapeutic milieu designed for maximum patient participation and active problem solving. Multidisciplinary treatment, comprised of psychological, social and medical components, provides the foundation for care on the unit.
