Mount Carmel Behavioral Health provides acute inpatient behavioral health services for adults over the age of 18 in Columbus, Ohio. Our highly skilled staff is committed to compassionate care that builds upon the inherent strengths of our patients and their families.
Understanding Acute Inpatient Care
Who can benefit from acute inpatient care at Mount Carmel Behavioral Health?
Mount Carmel Behavioral Health’s acute inpatient care program is designed to support adult patients over the age of 18 who are experiencing acute behavioral health concerns. During their brief five- to seven-day stay, patients will receive stabilization support and assistance in creating a comprehensive plan for transitioning to other levels of care.
Many of our patients are referred to us while in a state of crisis, often from local emergency rooms or other providers. The acute inpatient care program at Mount Carmel Behavioral Health is uniquely equipped to assist these individuals and provide compassionate care in some of life’s most challenging moments. While our program can offer support for a wide variety of mental health concerns, many of our patients come to us struggling with:
- Mood disorders like anxiety or depression
- Psychotic disorders
- Substance use disorders or eating disorders (only as secondary to a primary mental health disorder diagnosis)
Our Inpatient Programming
What types of services are offered within the acute inpatient program at Mount Carmel Behavioral Health?
While patients do not spend a lengthy amount of time in our acute inpatient program, their stay will be filled with the personalized supports they need to begin the journey to recovery. Our modalities reflect the science-backed foundations of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and solution-focused therapy. In addition, we offer non-crisis medical care from our experienced medical staff of certified nurse practitioners.
Many of our patients rely on pharmacological therapy as part of their stabilization and healing process. They meet with a psychiatrist or advanced nurse practitioner at least five times per week during their stay for medication management services.
