Our mental health care services

Every person's mental health challenges and lifestyles are different, so we offer a variety of therapies and formats for treatment.

Inpatient behavioral health services

Our inpatient services are designed to provide intensive treatment to voluntary and involuntary patients who are 18 years old and older. Using a patient-centered approach to care, we use the expertise of a team of professionals with varied specialties to support recovery and the learning of coping strategies in times of stress.

Inpatient treatment plans

Your physician-led care plan may include:

  • Active psychiatric treatment with 24-hour access to a psychiatrist
  • Medication administration and monitoring for patients
  • After-care plans to address post-hospitalization needs
  • Collaborative care with your community providers during and after the course of treatment

Outpatient partial hospitalization program (PHP)

We provide short-term mental health services for adults, including our PHPs for adults. This allows access to an intensive outpatient treatment setting for patients struggling with daily routines due to anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.

PHP may be appropriate for you if:

  • You could benefit from intensive mental health support and psychiatric evaluation
  • You need a gradual transition from an inpatient stay
  • You need more structure but do not require inpatient treatment
  • The program also provides flexibility for providers who wish to directly admit to the program.

To learn more about our adult PHP, please call us at (804) 672-4380.

Substance abuse PHP (SA-PHP)

This highly structured and time-limited PHP for substance abuse treats individuals seeking recovery. The program adopts the American Society of Addiction Medicine criteria and treatment principles specific to the partial hospitalization level of care. It is staffed by qualified physicians, nursing staff and certified substance abuse counselors.

To learn more about our substance abuse program, call us at (804) 672-4380.

SA-PHP components

Our treatment program is designed to create positive changes in the home and social settings by recognizing underlying factors that may be contributing to the issue.

We accomplish this via services and interventions including:

  • Daily progress meetings between the patient and staff to identify symptoms and goals
  • Discharge planning and resource identification
  • Family meetings to provide education on creating a healthy support system
  • Individualized, self-directed assignments focused on relapse prevention, self-discovery and insights into behavior
  • Introduction to community recovery support, including 12-step programs
  • Meetings with assigned clinicians to identify strengths, needs and available support
  • Medication, as appropriate, and health education
  • Patient-centered goal setting and treatment planning
  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Structured group therapy sessions focused on education, awareness and recovery principles

This program operates Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 3:00pm.

SA-PHP admission criteria

Candidates for the SA-PHP:

  • Cannot be actively suicidal, homicidal or physically aggressive
  • Must be 18 years old or older
  • Must have a primary substance abuse diagnosis or secondary substance abuse diagnosis in addition to psychiatric factors where the substance abuse diagnosis is creating an impairment in everyday life

Additionally, the SA-PHP requires participants to abstain from substance use while being treated in the program.

Direct admission to the Center for Emotional Growth

Our process for direct admission is designed to be easy for providers looking for timely admission of voluntary patients into our mental health units.

What to expect with direct admission

Once a member of our mental health assessment team confirms a patient is "medically clear," stopping in the emergency room (ER) may not be necessary. However, a COVID-19 testing requirement will be discussed upon inquiry.

For admission requests, please call us at (877) 886-7026.

For outpatient requests, please call (804) 672-4380.

For medical professionals

If you are a medical provider looking for information about admissions, please call us at (844) 216-5105.
