Adult Inpatient Services
We all face challenge and misfortune in life, some more severe than others. The impact brought about by depression, disease, the death of a loved one, chemical imbalance, and other life-altering situations can understandably drive adults to seek professional support and intervention.
Adult Inpatient Psychiatric and Addictions Program
The Adult Inpatient Psychiatric and Addictions Program at Carrier Clinic® is here to help with short-term crisis stabilization for people suffering from psychiatric or emotional difficulties. Our goal is to provide the highest quality, most progressive inpatient behavioral healthcare, and specialized dual diagnosis services if needed, in a safe, structured, therapeutic hospital environment.
We at Carrier Clinic take an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach to our psychiatric treatment. Each patient is given an individualized treatment plan and supported by highly-skilled clinical staff to stabilize symptoms and develop the necessary coping skills to safely return to the community. Equally important in the treatment process is patient and family education that sets the stage for a continued course of recovery.
Our Adult Psychiatric Program is designed for adults suffering from one or more of the following:
- Mood, Anxiety and/or Thought Disorders
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Psychiatric Manifestations of Medical Conditions
Dual Diagnosis Program
For those with co-occurring disorders, Carrier Clinic®’s Dual Diagnosis Program offers specialized short-term critical care intervention, and utilizes group and individual therapies in conjunction with psychiatric medications. The program’s primary focus is to provide psychiatric counseling for patients with depression, anxiety, bipolar and other disorders, with a framework designed to give particular attention to addictive and compulsive behaviors that can often be compiled with psychological issues.
Because addiction is a disease, state-of-the-art pharmacology is used not only for the control of psychiatric symptoms, but for craving reduction and relapse prevention of chemical abuse, and other impulse control disorders.
The Dual Diagnosis Program is a highly integrated, multidisciplinary treatment approach that is sensitive to cultural, religious, ethnic, socioeconomic and sexual diversity throughout the adult population. Skilled assessment, diagnosis and treatment culminate in comprehensive aftercare planning as well. To ensure continuity of care and relapse prevention, we help patients and families access community resources, and negotiate their treatment needs with private providers or social agencies. Carrier Clinic® also offers six weeks of support and education by licensed addictions and psychiatric counselors through our Weekend Codependency Program, at no cost to patients and their families.
