Delta Medical Center’s Behavioral Health programs include comprehensive behavioral health and medical assessments provided by a qualified interdisciplinary treatment team. Because our Behavioral Health units are located in a full-service hospital, we can address both medical and behavioral health problems. Family members are included in many aspects of the patient’s treatment, and are encouraged to participate throughout the process. The information we collect during the evaluation and time spent getting to know you and any others you may choose to include in your evaluation and treatment process are used as the basis of the treatment plan which is created in collaboration with you. This integrated process for determining and prioritizing patient needs includes:
- Admission assessment
- Psychiatric evaluation, including comprehensive mental status examination
- Ongoing nursing assessment
- Medical history and physical examination
- Diagnostic testing and interpretation
- Psychosocial assessment and discharge planning
At Delta we are committed to continuity of care and have a number of specialized and general inpatient and outpatient services.
Inpatient Behavioral Health Services
Adult Mental Health Unit – Our Adult Mental Health Unit is intended for those above the age of 17 who are in need of acute psychiatric care and stabilization. We deal with behavioral, psychological and medical health concerns in a secure environment.
Dual Diagnosis Unit – Delta Medical Center’s Dual Diagnosis Unit an adult program designed to address the needs of individuals confronted with an addiction to alcohol or drugs accompanied by an emotional or psychiatric illness. Treatment strategies focus on assisting individuals to effectively develop a lifestyle free of alcohol or drugs, learn ways to manage the symptoms of emotional or psychiatric illness in a healthy, constructive manner, and develop relapse prevention strategies.
Senior Care Unit – Our Senior Programs focus on evaluation and treatment strategies focusing on a variety of behavioral, psychological, cognitive, emotional and medical health issues that are specific to this age group. Some of the particular issues addressed include memory problems, behavioral agitation or aggression, sudden mental status changes such as disorientation, and severe depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions.
Outpatient Behavioral Health Services
As we are committed to continuity of care, we have designed two outpatient programs from those who don’t need the structure and level of care provided by an inpatient unit but need a higher level of services than provided by traditional outpatient therapy.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – This program provides a similar level of service to our inpatient programs but allows you to sleep at home and begin re-assuming responsibilities for your life. Our PHP meets five days a week for a total of 20 hours of services weekly, though this may be adjusted based on your individual treatment plan.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – This program is intended for those who are ready to re-enter their lives and begin integrating back into their homes, jobs, and communities. Our IOP meets three days a week for 12 hours of services weekly. Like our PHP the schedule may be adjusted based on the recommendations from the individual’s treatment plan.
