Psychiatric Care & Stabilization
The physical and emotional security of the patient comes first in Peachford Hospital’s Adult Acute Inpatient Program. Through an intensive therapeutic structure, we provide medical and psychiatric stabilization and 24-hour nursing care for patients experiencing critical symptoms.
A comprehensive treatment approach is employed to stabilize acute psychiatric and addictive disease issues in adults of all ages. Our multidisciplinary treatment team of physicians, nurses, activities therapists and social workers collaborate to create a safe and structured environment that offers compassion and hope to patients in crisis.
For patients who are also experiencing a co-occurring addiction or substance abuse disorder, we provide dual-diagnosis addiction treatment. Our approach is grounded in the 12-Step model, providing patients with new tools and coping mechanisms to maintain sobriety long-term.
The ultimate goal of treatment is to stabilize the immediate crisis and to enable the patient to return to their community with tools and skills for personal and emotional development, relationship building and independence. An individualized treatment plan is initiated with a special emphasis placed on medication management, group and family therapy, education and relapse prevention.
DISCHARGE & AFTERCARE
Creating a discharge plan from the very beginning is a priority so each patient can meet their goals. When the staff and patient work together by identifying and coordinating community resource support as well as aftercare services, the need for future hospitalization decreases.
