Adult Inpatient Treatment

Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, provides personalized inpatient treatment for adults age 18 and older. Our hospital serves patients who have anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, and other mental health disorders. We also care for those who are struggling with addiction. Inpatient treatment is a short-term service, with the goal of stabilizing patients so that they can return home or step down to a lower level of care. Typical length of stay at our hospital is seven to 12 days. During that time, a person’s care may include basic medical care, medication management services, detoxification, individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy. Our team works closely with each patient to explain the features and benefits of each service. We are also available to answer any questions patients may have at any time. Before they transition out of our inpatient program, all patients receive a discharge plan to guide their continued progress.

Treatment Approach

Our approach to treatment is based on our unwavering belief that each person deserves to receive comprehensive, customized inpatient care that reflects their unique needs and can prepare them to achieve their goals. To accomplish this, we start by completing a thorough intake assessment for each new patient. The information we collect during this assessment allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient. Depending on the person’s age and needs, they may receive inpatient care at our hospital in one of three units: adult mental health unit, adult dual diagnosis unit, or geriatric unit. The dual diagnosis unit is for patients who are struggling with both mental illness and addiction. The geriatric unit serves older adults who have developed certain age-related mental health concerns. In all units, treatment may incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This research-supported modality helps patients identify self-defeating thought and behavior patterns and replace them with healthier ways of thinking and acting.

Our hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is a state-of-the-art treatment center where people can receive customized care and comprehensive support.

People who receive inpatient treatment at Erlanger Behavioral Health may be cared for by medical doctors, board-certified psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed counselors and social workers, activity therapists, a nutritionist, and other experts.
