Located in Columbia, Missouri, we provide premier mental health, addiction, and trauma treatment for people of all ages. Our compassionate team helps each person work toward a better quality of life.  

Programming Overview

We offer inpatient and outpatient programs for children, adolescents, adults, and senior adults who are in need of focused care for mental health disorders and certain addictions. No matter what track a patient participates in, they can receive evidence-based treatment to help them learn to manage their symptoms and build a foundation for a healthier life. 

Through our comprehensive programming, we treat a range of behavioral health concerns, including:   

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety  
  • Bipolar disorder  
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder  
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder  
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder  
  • Grief and loss  
  • Self-harm 
  • Suicidal ideation  
  • Addictions to alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines  
  • Dual diagnosis  

At CenterPointe Hospital of Columbia, our aim is to teach people return-to-life strategies that can help them transition back to their daily routines seamlessly. We are committed to taking an individualized approach to care that considers each person’s needs, goals, and strengths.  

To better understand our patients’ unique experiences, we conduct an in-depth initial assessment for every person who seeks care from our team. Using the information we gather from their assessment, we can customize a person’s treatment plan to help ensure that they participate in the modalities that are most beneficial for them.   

Inpatient Programs

CenterPointe Hospital of Columbia offers acute inpatient care for children, teens, adults, and senior adults who are in need of crisis intervention. We understand that people may face certain behavioral health concerns or respond differently to therapies depending on the stage of life they are in. For this reason, we offer age-appropriate care through an array of programs.   

Our Stepping Stones program is available for children and adolescents who are suffering from severe emotional challenges. In this track, young people receive highly structured care in two separate units — one for children ages 8-12 and one for adolescents ages 13-17. In a nurturing and supportive environment, each young person can learn healthy coping skills to help them reach their full potential.  

In our inpatient program for adults, we provide stabilization services for adults age 18 and older who are battling severe mental health disorders and addictions. Senior adults age 65 and older can benefit from specialized inpatient care in our Silver Lining program, which is designed to address concerns a person may face later in life, like dementia.  

Depending on a person’s needs and the program they participate in, their treatment plan may include:  

  • Medical care 
  • Medication management services  
  • Detoxification  
  • Family, group, and experiential therapies   

Generally, people stay in our inpatient program for seven to 10 days, but the actual duration is determined by our team of experts on a case-by-case basis. It’s not uncommon for senior adults to remain in our inpatient program for a slightly longer period of time, usually 10-14 days.  

Outpatient Programs

For adolescents and adults who do not require inpatient hospitalization but can benefit from structured care, we offer several outpatient programming options.  

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed for adolescents ages 11-17 and adults age 18 and older. Patients can enter our IOP directly or after completing a higher level of care. Those in our IOP participate in nine therapeutic hours broken up over three days each week. During treatment, patients can continue meeting daily responsibilities at home, work, and school and in their communities while making strides toward improved health. While the average length of stay in our IOP is four to six weeks, our staff works with each person to establish a timeline for programming that can help them achieve the best outcomes.  

We understand that taking part in treatment in person may be difficult for some, which is why we proudly offer virtual IOP options for both adolescents and adults. Through virtual therapy, individuals can receive the care they need from the comfort of their own homes.  

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) serves adolescents ages 11-17 who have behavioral health concerns. Young people typically take part in programming for five hours each day, five days a week, for 10-12 days. Individuals in our PHP can engage in person-centered treatment with a multidisciplinary team of professionals. At this level of care, a person’s treatment plan may include medication management services and group therapy. Adolescents can also enjoy pet, art, and music therapy as part of our comprehensive programming.

Additional Outpatient Services 

At CenterPointe Hospital of Columbia, we provide transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for adults ages 22-70 who are living with depression. TMS is a noninvasive, FDA-approved therapy that involves the use of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, which can alleviate symptoms of depression. 

This form of therapy can help those who have not found relief through traditional means of depression treatment feel more like themselves again. For additional information or to schedule a no-cost consultation, please call our TMS referral line at (573) 615-2010.
