Inpatient Behavioral Health
Our Inpatient Behavioral Health program provides treatment for patients with a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and thought disorders. We also treat individuals coping with loss, bereavement, and changes in functioning. Families are closely involved and participate during the hospitalization.
Lackey’s 10-bed inpatient behavioral health unit, enables adults 65 or older, with emotional or mental health care needs, to improve their daily functioning and quality of life. The department provides a free assessment to determine an individual’s symptoms and make recommendations for treatment. With a therapeutic community philosophy, our patients and their families participate in their care. Individuals learn to better understand themselves and to accept responsibility for their own well-being. Each day, they participate in a range of goal-oriented individual and group therapeutic activities that help older adults develop needed life skills. By practicing coping skills, learned in the program, individuals are able to make necessary changes prior to returning to their home environment.
