The Behavioral Services Unit at Jane Phillips Medical Center is a 17-bed facility providing inpatient psychiatric services to persons 18 years of age or older who require intensive/crisis services with 24-hour supervision.
The treatment program is designed to offer professional and compassionate care provided by an interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, nurses, occupational therapists, case managers, a psychologist, and licensed clinical social workers.
Persons who are appropriate for admission must have a primary diagnosis classified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV-TR. These diagnoses include persistent and acute mental illnesses, substance dependence (detoxification), and psychiatric illnesses related to aging.
The initial treatment assessments consist of psychiatric, nursing, and psychosocial assessments with psychological, nutritional, and activities assessments provided as needed. Treatments provided include group counseling, recreational and activities therapies, individual psychotherapy and family therapy. The primary goal of treatment is to help the individual regain and maintain their optimal level of functioning to enhance the quality of his/her life. A related goal is to educate patients and families about the illness to help them learn to understand the symptoms more effectively.Jane Phillips Medical Center has a medical staff with a wide variety of specialists who are available for consultation as needed for co-existing medical problems so that they can be handled promptly and expertly.
We believe in the value of family involvement, and, with the patient’s permission, seek family participation in the treatment and discharge planning processes. The discharge plan includes referral to appropriate community resources.
