Dual Diagnosis

Support for mental health and substance abuse concerns at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital

Often, individuals who are struggling with acute mental illness also suffer from chemical dependency issues at the same time. For some, ongoing untreated substance abuse can result in painful psychiatric challenges. For others, substance abuse may be a misguided attempt to numb the pain of an untreated mental health concern. In any case, if you or a loved one is struggling with mental illness and substance abuse simultaneously, a dual diagnosis program is an ideal setting in which to recover. This form of comprehensive treatment allows participants to address the full spectrum of their symptoms, thus fostering healing on a deeper level.

Adult Programming

Acute psychiatric care for adults at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital

Adults over the age of 18 who are struggling with acute symptoms of a psychiatric illness are welcome to stabilize and begin the journey to recovery at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital. Admission into our comprehensive adult treatment program is decided on a case-by-case basis following a thorough assessment of each patient’s history and presenting concerns, but many of our patients come to our hospital suffering from disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and psychosis. While at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital, patients attend a variety of supportive interventions (including individual, group, and as-needed family therapy) and have access to medication management and basic medical services. The experienced, compassionate professionals at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital work to ensure that each patient receives 24/7 supervision as they heal and prepare for the next steps on their treatment journey.

Geriatric Programming

Acute psychiatric care for older adults at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital

As adults age, their health can become compromised due to certain physical impairments or symptoms of mental illnesses that affect memory and cognition. At Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital, we work on a voluntary or involuntary basis with senior adults who are in need of stabilization and recovery services due to acute mental health concerns. We partner with family members and loved ones, hospitals, nursing homes, and other community facilities to ensure that the older adults in our community have access to acute psychiatric care that reflects their developmental needs.
