About our Adult Behavioral Health Service

 TrustPoint Hospital provides acute crisis stabilization for individuals suffering from a mental illness, emotional distress, or having difficulty coping with daily life. The Adult Inpatient program is designed specifically to promote healing in a safe, secure environment and facilitate a return to daily routines. We understand that patients are admitted to our services under the most difficult of circumstances and we strive to provide a healthy and calm environment while preserving patient privacy.

Patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment from our interdisciplinary treatment team. Our team includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, social workers, medical staff, recreational therapists, social workers, and patient care techs. Each patient will receive psychiatric evaluation and treatment, medical evaluation, 24-hour nursing care and assessment, in a multidisciplinary approach to individualized treatment. Each treatment plan is designed to meet the patient’s individual needs.

The adult inpatient program is a 7-day program, with some patients requiring more or less time.  The 7-day structure provides the following elements:

  • Days 1 – 2 is the assessment phase
  • Days 3 – 6 is the treatment phase
  • Days 7 – 8 is the discharge phase.

About one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year. The Adult Inpatient Program puts the patient at the center of treatment and we strive to   improve the lives of our patients and their families.

When the symptoms of a severe psychiatric illness are impacting a person’s daily life, acute services may be necessary to alleviate the psychological distress and turmoil that is preventing that individual from living a satisfying existence. When in such a circumstance, men and women aged 18 and older can benefit from TrustPoint’s Adult Behavioral Health Unit.

Among the types of mental health concerns treated within this unit, the following are the most common:

  • Depression with thoughts of suicide
  • Schizophrenia
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Delusional disorder
  • Psychosis
  • Substance-induced Psychosis

TrustPoint Hospital offers assessments for the Adult Behavioral Health Unit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Access Intake Team at TrustPoint or the Access Intake Team at St. Thomas Rutherford Emergency Department can determine if this type of psychiatric treatment is necessary and appropriate to alleviate the symptoms experienced by an individual. When deemed clinically needed, a person can also be admitted to this level of care that same day.

Once admitted to the Adult Behavioral Health Unit, men and women can expect to participate and benefit from the following treatment methods:

  • Medication management services are featured on this unit so that men and women have access to experienced psychiatrists who can recommend and prescribe medication when it is needed.
  • Group therapy sessions, which are led by TrustPoint staff, enable patients to gain information, insight, support, and encouragement from others who have endured and overcome similar challenges.
  • Family therapy sessions may be incorporated into a patient’s treatment when it is considered necessary to the individual’s healing process.
  • Individual therapy sessions are offered on an as-needed basis and are conducted by social workers.

If you or someone you care about is struggling with a thought disorder or other mental illness, your search for a treatment provider is over. At TrustPoint Hospital, we individuals begin living the healthier life that is deserving of all people. Call us today to speak with an admission counselor.
