Behavioral Health Services

Atrium Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Pavilion provides inpatient care as well as structured outpatient care for adults facing psychological and emotional issues.

Adult Inpatient Care (Behavioral Health Unit)

Atrium’s Pavilion offers an inpatient care area where staff members provide 24-hour supervision in a secure, healing environment for adults who face behavioral health issues requiring hospitalization.

To enhance recovery, patients are encouraged to participate in a structured program that may include psychotherapy, problem-solving group activities, and life-skills classes led by professional staff members. The Pavilion provides a variety of services applied within a treatment plan that is designed to best manage each patient’s recovery. Staff members encourage group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, education, or medication. The treatment team develops a customized treatment plan for each patient. The plan will include recommendations for discharge and post-treatment care so the patient can confidently return to life at home.

Older Adult Program (Inpatient)

When older adults face life changes such as grief, loss, or major life changes, they often experience issues with their mental or emotional health.

The Pavilion features an Older Adult Program to provide behavioral health care customized for adults age 65 and older who may require hospitalization. Highly trained staff members are equipped to help aging patients through difficult times in a secure, caring environment. To enhance recovery, patients participate in problem-solving group activities and life skills classes led by professional staff members.

A psychiatrist meets with participants and/or significant others of the Older Adult Program so that medication management can be a part of the treatment process as needed.

Each patient is treated with his or her own plan for recovery. The treatment plan designed for geriatric care might include:

  • Psychiatric and medical evaluation
  • Memory impairment assessment
  • Medication management
  • Psychological testing
  • Individual, group, or family therapies
  • Physical, occupational, speech, or recreational therapies
  • Discharge plan

Structured Outpatient Program

Adults 18 and over who need psychiatric support may be referred to the Structured Outpatient Program. Patients may be referred directly to the program or may come after they are discharged from an inpatient program. The Structured Outpatient Program provides a support system that includes group therapies, individual or family counseling, and medical management to help patients maintain their work and personal relationships while living at home. Transportation can be provided.

Each patient gets an individually designed treatment plan, which may include:

  • Psychiatric and medical evaluation
  • Medication management
  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Memory impairment evaluations
  • Interventions

A board certified geriatric psychiatrist oversees specially trained team members who create a treatment plan specific to each patient. The average program length is approximately 4 months.

Alcohol or Chemical Dependency

While alcohol or chemical dependency may be a portion of the diagnosis of some patients, the Pavilion does not have a “detox” or “rehab” program. The Pavilion treats alcohol or chemical dependency as a secondary diagnosis and refers primary-diagnosed patients who face these issues to an appropriate outside service. The Pavilion will host Al-Anon/NAMI meetings if requested.
