Inpatient Services


To care for patients with short-term, acute-care needs, Michiana Behavioral Health offers an extensive range of inpatient services to patients of all ages. One reason we are able to provide excellent care is because of a dedication to communication. Our services start with a thorough assessment to ensure each patient is placed in the appropriate level of care. If it is determined that a patient needs acute care, we address the patient's problems with a wide range of services including:

  • Daily visits with psychiatrist
  • Family therapy and education
  • 24-hour nursing care
  • Group psychotherapy
  • Group psychoeducation
  • Expressive therapy
  • Comprehensive discharge planning
