Delta Medical Center's Life Renewal is a 16 bed adult inpatient diagnostic and treatment program designed to address the patient's behavioral and medical health concerns in a safe, structured environment with a Christian treatment track option. Treatment strategies focus on assisting individuals in developing and enhancing coping skills for both personal and spiritual growth that will enable the patient to reintegrate into the family and community. Patients are treated by an experienced staff in an environment that includes the opportunity to interact with peers that can relate to their special circumstances.
Treatment is individualized for each patient to address medical, behavioral, and spiritual needs. We seek:
� To provide crisis stabilization and care based on individual patient needs.
� To protect and ensure patients' rights.
� To assist the patient and family in planning and providing for the appropriate care after discharge.
� To incorporate Christian and Biblical principles into treatment and recovery for those who choose the optional Christian component.
Comprehensive medical, psychiatric, behavioral, and spiritual assessments are provided by a qualified interdisciplinary staff of physicians, nurses, counselors and social workers, dieticians, recreational therapists, and chaplain. Family members are included in many aspects of the patient's treatment and are encouraged to participate throughout the process.
