Problems we address

  • Suicidal feelings/thoughts

Psychiatric treatment is offered to adults at the following levels:

  • Acute inpatient hospitalization
  • Partial hospitalization
  • Intensive outpatient hospitalization
  • Individual outpatient by referral

The acute program treats adults in an intensive therapeutic structure, providing medical and psychiatric stabilization and 24-hour nursing care for patients experiencing critical symptoms.

Partial hospitalization is designed to assist individuals who require acute stabilization without the intensity of full inpatient hospitalization. The partial hospitalization program provides six hours of structured programming per day, allowing a patient to return home in the evening.

Intensive outpatient treatment provides three hours of structured therapy per day, allowing the patient to maintain a work schedule and live at home.

For patients whose treatment needs can best be met through individual outpatient therapy, Peachford works closely with a statewide network of mental health professionals to arrange appropriate referrals.
