Build stability in individuals as quickly as possible through personalized, comprehensive, cost-effective treatment plans for inpatient services and outpatient support. Our guiding principles are to treat all with respect, manners, kindness and professionalism.
Admission is available 24/7/365. Physician-to-physician referrals are available. Individuals may be admitted on either a voluntary or involuntary basis. Involuntary admissions typically occur when one is a danger to self or others, or when one becomes gravely disabled and unable to execute the normal activities of daily life.
At West Springs Hospital we treat patients with a variety of mental health conditions and concerns, including the following:
Preparing for Admission
If you or a loved one is preparing for admission consider these suggestions:
Upon admission, each patient is thoroughly evaluated and re-assessed daily with his or her personalized treatment team to determine progress toward discharge goals. A patient’s individual needs & circumstances determine the length of their stay.
Psychiatrists, nurses, therapists, mental health workers, social workers and case workers come together as a personalized treatment team to assist our patients and their support systems in a variety of areas including family dynamics, social and medication issues, and discharge and post-discharge planning. Individuals may participate in various support groups, based on their diagnosis, level of functioning and specific treatment needs as identified by the treatment team.
Our treatment programs include an intensive range of modalities including medication management, medication education, individual therapy, family therapy, psychosocial rehabilitation education and case management services. While many people who have a psychiatric disorder may also have a substance abuse disorder, we are not a substance abuse treatment hospital. We do provide education and referrals for specific substance abuse concerns.Sample Daily Schedule
