Adult Psychiatric Program

Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital’s Adult Psychiatric Program provides intensive treatment for adults dealing with mental illness. Even if you have never received a diagnosis, mental illness symptoms can appear at any time, and this inpatient treatment program is ready to address them.

If you’ve experienced any of the following mental health issues, you may need immediate mental health treatment:

  • Feelings of lethargy
  • Thoughts of harming yourself or others
  • Bouts of extreme stress, which may come with heart palpitations or troubled breathing
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Loss of interest in activities that you used to enjoy

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, you should consider enrolling in our Adult Psychiatric program. But what can you expect from that process?

Intake and Mental Health Evaluation

When you begin your stay at Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital, you will meet privately with one of our mental health professionals. Here, you will discuss the mental health issues you’re facing, your history, and what you need from our treatment program. Our mental health experts will then use this information to enroll you in the program that will be most beneficial to you.

If our Adult Psychiatric Program is a good fit,  you will be enrolled in this inpatient treatment option. From here, you will undergo a variety of mental health treatment modalities.

Mental Health Treatment Plans

Based on your initial assessment, our care specialists will provide you with a personalized treatment plan. These treatment options will meet your personal needs and set you on the path to mental health recovery. Our most popular inpatient treatment options include:

  • Group therapy: daily groups to discuss mental health issues and shared experiences
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: talk therapy that focuses on helping you make real, tangible changes in your mental health and in your life
  • Medication management: clinical care where a medical professional meets with you to prescribe or adjust new medication dosages
  • Recreational therapy: fun, activity-based therapy that teaches important life skills like stress management, communication, and self-care skills

Discharge Planning

At Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital, we look for ways to help you achieve long-term wellness. And we do that by ensuring that you will not experience a relapse in mental health after completing our inpatient treatment program.

To that end, we help facilitate a relationship between you and available community resources. This may mean referring you to an outpatient mental health program, ensuring that you receive regular counseling, or just making sure that you have a safe, affirming place to call home.

While there’s no way to guarantee mental health recovery, we take every step to give you the best possible chance. From our first evaluation, through our customized treatment programs, and all the way to discharge planning, we always act with your best interests in mind.
