Treating Adults in Crisis
Garland Behavioral Hospital’s inpatient programs for adults can help patients recover from mental and behavioral health issues like anxiety, depression, severe mood disorders, substance abuse and more. Our goal is to stabilize the most acute, immediate symptoms, and then provide patients with an opportunity to learn new coping mechanisms that encourage lifelong recovery and prevent the chance of relapse. Treatment occurs in a structured, restorative environment that can help patients confront issues and improve their emotional health in a secure, comfortable setting.
We offer an Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Program that can help patients regain control over their thoughts so they can return to their lives with the skills they need to cope. Our program is currently separated by gender, featuring all male and all female units with private rooms to help patients feel more at home. We also offer an Older Adult Inpatient Program, housed in two separate units with private rooms, that provides specialized care attuned to the needs of seniors, addressing issues such as grief, depression and cognitive problems like Alzheimer’s, dementia and more. The Monarch Program Unit is for seniors dealing with acute mental health and substance abuse issues, while the separate Magnolia Program Unit is for seniors who have more chronic, pre-existing medical conditions, or may be dealing with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other cognitive impairment issues. Our staff is now certified in Dementia Care through the Crisis Prevention Institute to provide evidence-based care for our older patients.
Our treatment team is made up of board-certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, masters-level therapists and social workers. They focus on creating individualized treatment plans that combine group therapy, and individual and family therapy as needed to address a patient’s specific needs and goals. Once your treatment at our facility begins to wind down, we’ll work with you and your family on a discharge plan for continued care in the community.
