Behavioral Health/Chemical Dependency

Inpatient Behavioral Health Program

The Inpatient Behavioral Health Program at Silver Cross Hospital provides intensive treatment in a safe environment for patients who are experiencing acute behavioral health symptoms. Treatment is provided in a structured and respectful environment, and includes a variety of treatment approaches to best meet each patient’s individual needs. Patients receive treatment from a diverse team of registered nurses, social workers, behavioral health technicians, and recreational therapists, under the direction of a psychiatrist. 

We strongly value the role that family, other loved ones, and referring treatment providers serve in our patient’s treatment process. Our treatment approach relies heavily on collaborating with family, friends, and outside providers to contribute to developing the individual’s treatment plan and working towards successful discharge.
