CenterPointe Hospital of Columbia provides intensive psychiatric acute care to stabilize an immediate crisis and help provide patients with the skills to prevent future crisis situations. Our inpatient psychiatric care is a highly structured crisis stabilization model with emphasis on identifying crisis symptoms, stabilizing behaviors, identifying environmental supports and increasing coping skills of each patient. CenterPointe offers acute inpatient care for adults age 18 and up who are experiencing moderate to severe psychiatric and behavioral problems. Our inpatient adult psychiatric services and programs are tailored to the patient’s needs, enabling them to more effectively cope with emotions and behaviors that may be interfering with the attainment of a happy, successful life.Hospitalization should be reserved for situations when round-the-clock safety, observation and care are required. For that reason, CenterPointe is designed to be a nurturing environment for intensive mental health treatment including observation, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy and medication management. It is a safe place to be for individuals who are feeling out of control, having thoughts of harming themselves or someone else, having trouble taking care of themselves or their family or if they are experiencing other serious symptoms.
Under the direction of the attending psychiatrist, CenterPointe’s multidisciplinary treatment teams consists of master’s level therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, dietician, therapeutic activity therapists, and mental health technicians. Treatment is based on the belief that, through a combination of medically managed care and therapeutic intervention and education, patients can learn to effectively manage their illness and cope with the effects on their lives.
Treatment emphasizes return-to-life strategies and cognitive therapies to help patients transition from the hospital smoothly and in the shortest possible time. Our personalized treatment and aftercare plans address a broad range of needs, with specific consideration to each patient. Comprehensive assessment and treatment may include individual and group therapy, as well as family education.
