About

About Southcoast Behavioral Health

Located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Southcoast Behavioral Health offers comprehensive inpatient psychiatric treatment services for adults who are dealing with a number of different concerns, including the following: adjustment disorder, aggression, anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, depressive disorders, homicidal ideation, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosis, self-harming behaviors, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and suicidal ideation. Treatment at Southcoast's 144-bed hospital is provided by multidisciplinary teams that include licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), board-certified psychiatrists, recreational therapists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and mental health technicians. The typical length of stay at Southcoast Behavioral Health is five to seven days.

Treatment at Southcoast Behavioral Health

Treatment at Southcoast is a personalized experience that involves therapeutic activities and medication management, if necessary. Depending on the needs identified during their initial assessment, patients will participate in individual, group, and family therapy sessions. Group sessions are conducted a minimum of five times each day, while the frequency of individual and family sessions is based on the needs of each patient. Individual sessions between the patient and a psychiatrist or social worker are opportunities for the patient to discuss the treatment experience, process any successes or setbacks, and address any issues or concerns. Group sessions provide patients with the opportunity to share insights, learn from the experiences of others, and practice the improved interpersonal skills that they have been learning. Family sessions promote healing within the family, strengthen intra-familial bonds, and provide family members with an opportunity to have their personal needs addressed. Patients who can benefit from medication management services will meet with a psychiatrist each day and receive medication monitoring support from nurses and nurse practitioners.

Treatment Options at Southcoast Behavioral Health

Patients at Southcoast Behavioral Health receive comprehensive care. The adult program is for adults of all genders ages 18+. Patients benefit from personalized treatment plans that include individual, group, and family therapies, as well as medication management on an as-needed basis. Patients also receive structured discharge planning and aftercare preparation to ensure that they have the support and resources that are necessary to make the most successful and productive transition home or to their next placement. Coming in 2016! Southcoast Behavioral Health will offer an adolescent program, designed for male and female patients ages 13 to 17. Services will be provided in our hospital setting by teams of experienced professionals who have specific expertise in the ways that young people are impacted by mental health disorders and related issues. In addition, we offer a senior unit for ages 65+ that addresses the unique ways that mental health disorders impact the geriatric population.
