Care Options for Adults & Seniors
Garland Behavioral Hospital provides mental health support and treatment services for adults age 18 and older. Our newly renovated, Medicare-certified facility offers inpatient and outpatient programs for adults struggling with clinical depression, anxiety, stress, substance use or aging issues. Adults who come to our Garland, Texas facility are often experiencing significant impairment in functioning at home, work or in the community due to mental health issues. Our programs seek to stabilize patients in crisis and give them the skills to manage their symptoms long-term for an improved quality of life.
Our staff, led by a Medical Director board-certified in both Adult and Geriatric Psychiatry, provides individualized, evidence-based treatment to people in need. The multidisciplinary treatment team is comprised of board-certified psychiatrists, masters-level therapists, social workers, dieticians, registered nurses, activity/recreation therapists, and licensed chemical dependency counselors who collaborate to provide targeted, specific care for each patient. Our staff is now certified in Dementia Care through the Crisis Prevention Institute to provide evidence-based care for our older patients. For patients who are suffering from addiction and mental health issues, we also offer dual-diagnosis treatment, complemented by support group meetings like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous® (AA).
Our programming includes Adult Psychiatric Inpatient, Older Adult Inpatient, Partial Hospitalization, and Intensive Outpatient programs. Full treatment plans are designed based on patient needs, but they will include some of the following features:
Process Groups: These groups give you an opportunity to openly discuss the issues that concern you, get feedback from others about specific problems and receive information and direction from a therapist so that you can be successful after your discharge.
Psychoeducational Groups: These groups choose various evidenced-based topics based on the needs of the group to help provide members with education and discussion about appropriate coping skills.
Community Meetings: During these meetings, you and other patients will discuss unit rules, the schedule for the day, and listen to any other announcements.
Nursing Education Group: A nurse will provide education about some of the medications you take and how medications can help you get well, as well as other topics related to your health.
Recreation Therapy Groups: You and other patients will participate in a variety of activities that promote relaxation, wellness and education.
Multi-Family Group: Social workers lead these groups in which patients and their families receive education about treatments and can have their questions answered.
Family Involvement: Support from family and friends can be significant to a patient’s emotional wellbeing. Robust support systems have been clinically proven to improve mental health and relapse prevention.
Family Therapy: These sessions are based on your individual family needs. You may request a family session by asking your assigned therapist.
Discharge Planning: We begin thinking about your discharge as soon as you are admitted. We believe that ongoing, thorough planning for discharge during your admission is critical for your success. You and your social worker can schedule your follow-up appointment before your discharge.
Smoking Cessation: Garland Behavioral Hospital promotes the health and wellness of our patients and our visitors by establishing a smoke-free facility. Smoking cessation materials are available, as well as nicotine patches.
