Treatment for Adults

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the United States live with a mental illness. If you have concerns about yourself or a loved one, Hill Crest Behavioral Health Services is here to help. We offer a range of treatments and services for adults with mental, emotional or behavioral health problems in a confidential therapeutic environment.

Hill Crest Behavioral Health Services offers a highly structured, multidisciplinary Adult Program for patients ages 18 years and older who are experiencing mental, emotional or behavioral health issues. These may include severe depression, anxiety, psychosis, mood swings, sexual abuse issues, post traumatic stress disorders, identity disorders, co-occurring disorders or other problems severe enough to cause a negative impact on their life functions. Contact us for a confidential, no-cost assessment if you or someone you know is experiencing these types of issues. The length of stay at our mental health facility is determined for each patient based on individual needs.

Assessment(s) include:
Physical, psychiatric, psychosocial and nursing.

Individual Therapy:
Treatment by a psychiatrist and a therapist, and detox services for alcohol or drug abuse. Programs for adults also include family therapy (which includes patient and family education), and recreational therapy through our gymnasium and exercise groups.

Group Therapy:
Goal setting, substance abuse issues, mental health education, medication management, patient/family education, intensive therapy issues, a therapeutic community, creative expression through arts, crafts and music; adventure-based counseling (a ropes course) and pastoral care.

Discharge Planning focuses on relapse prevention (in both individual and group therapy), the development of a continuing care plan, and participation in a weekly substance abuse recovery group (as appropriate).

Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit

Hill Crest Behavioral Healthcare Services offers a highly structured PICU Program for adults ages 18 and older who are experiencing severe emotional, mental or behavioral problems that require 24/7 care. The PICU is designed as a smaller, structured unit for those patients requiring more intensive supervision and treatment.
The length of stay in the PICU is determined for each patient based on individual needs.

Program components are similar to those in Inpatient Hospitalization, depending on the patients’ needs and the nature of their symptoms. A no-cost assessment can help determine the appropriate level of care for you or a loved one. Contact us for more information.
