Individualized Treatment
& Patient-Centered Care

Our clinical staff consists of a team of physicians, nurses, therapists, social service clinicians, and trained mental health professionals, who provide assessment, diagnosis and rapid stabilization for acute psychiatric and/or co-occurring psychiatric and substance use conditions.

With input from the patient, the team develops an individualized treatment plan to meet the patient’s unique needs.

The clinical staff and the patient work together to build a set of treatment goals. Some treatment goals may include:

  • Attaining skills that help patients set boundaries in their relationships
  • Learning how to express emotions appropriately
  • Developing effective communication skills
  • Increasing self-esteem
  • Building anger management skills

24/7 Assessment and Referral Services

Adult Inpatient Program Highlights

Admission to our inpatient program begins with a thorough clinical assessment of an individual’s presenting issues. We provide diagnosis, treatment and stabilization of acute psychiatric conditions and co-occurring substance use and mental health issues.

Our psychiatrist-led multidisciplinary team of clinicians provides treatment using a multi-modal psychotherapeutic approach for a smooth transition to less intensive care and appropriate levels of follow-up support.

NCBHS inpatient programs also offer coordination and discharge planning, which includes families or other caregivers, community agencies, and insurance companies.

This helps with a patient’s successful transition back into their daily life.

Next Step and Adult Outpatient Program at NCBHS

Leaf Detail - NCBHS

As patients stabilize, develop coping skills, and learn about tools for wellness, our team works on the patient’s next steps toward discharge. Patients often continue with outpatient care, including a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at one of our Outpatient Centers. They may also discharge to home and follow up with our Telehealth IOP program.

Ongoing care is essential to help patients achieve long-term mental health and prevent relapse that could require further hospitalization.
