The adult psychiatric program is designed for the individual who is experiencing acute symptoms of psychiatric illness. This will often include depression, anxiety, suicidality, self-harm, and sometimes mania or psychoses. The goals of the program are to resolve these symptoms using therapy and sometimes medication, provide a proper diagnosis, and offer focused interventions that address central recurring problems. Patients are taught Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills (DBT) to help improve with emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance, and receive a psychiatry session every week.
Psychiatric programming is offered at two levels. The Partial Care Program is a high intensity full day program which meets five days per week, while the Intensive Outpatient Program is a half day program which meets up to five days per week.
