Adult Outpatient Service
The Outpatient Services Program at St. Mary’s offers a valuable and unique approach to mental health treatment. The program is designed for adults with emotional or behavioral disturbance who can understand and benefit from a full range of hospital mental health services but do not need overnight hospital care. For some, this program can prevent an inpatient hospitalization. For others, it can serve as a transitional step between inpatient and outpatient treatment.
The program’s concept allows patients to enjoy the comfort of their own homes at night and the opportunity to practice new lifestyle skills while receiving daily support and treatment from a team of St. Mary’s mental health professionals. Treatment goals are designed to help each adult return to productive, daily life. St. Mary’s Hospital Behavioral Health Outpatient Services Program is available from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A team of mental health professionals assess the patient to establish and implement an individual plan of treatment. The program provides up to five hours of intensive, highly structured treatment per day including a full range of psychiatric services. Group therapies offer structure, education and ways to improve coping skills. Medical and support services meet patients’ physical, psychological, social and activity needs, helping them acquire further stabilization and assisting them in a successful transition back to the community.
