Our Emerging Adult Inpatient Program is designed for adults ages 18 to 26 who are experiencing mental health problems that can be compounded by the unique challenges associated with this time of life.
What to Expect
The responsibilities and rewards of adulthood are for everyone!
That includes young adults dealing with mental illness and addiction issues. Our goal is to help each patient understand their illness, resolve their symptoms, learn to deal with setbacks as they arise, and successfully cross the bridge to an independent, rewarding adult life.
Early diagnosis and treatment can make a huge difference.
We created our Emerging Adult Program for young men and women ages 18 to 26 who need short-term, inpatient hospital care to help manage and overcome serious psychiatric and addiction disorders. It's the only psychiatric inpatient program of its kind in the region--and its designed specifically for young adults.
The path to adulthood can be an exciting and stressful time.
For some young people, it's also a time when serious mental health and addiction problems first start to occur. For example:
- bipolar disorder
- anxiety disorders
- clinical depression.
We provide specialized, state-of-the-art care.
Treatment is built around a deep appreciation for the unique stresses and life changing choices that accompany young adulthood such as establishing independence, exploring career options, starting and ending important personal relationships.
Individualized treatment plans are designed to meet specific needs.
Perhaps you've been experiencing feelings of extreme anger or fatigue, withdrawal from family and friends, self-harm, chronic indecision, or thoughts of suicide. Our team of expert caregivers can help you identify and address your particular challenges and design a plan that works for you. And you'll work as part of a team with highly trained professionals including:
- board-certified psychiatrists
- experienced psychiatric nurses
- licensed social workers
- compassionate mental health workers.
You can look forward to a healthier tomorrow.
And when you leave our Emerging Adult Program, we'll be right by your side with aftercare options to help you stay on track:
- on-campus partial hospital and intensive outpatient programs
- referrals and information about resources in your community.
