Adult chemical dependency/dual diagnosis

Inpatient treatment at our Midlands locations can provide 24-hour medical detoxification, helping patients safely withdraw from alcohol or drugs such as benzodiazapenes (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin). We also care for patients who have a psychiatric illness in addition to chemical dependence, often referred to as co-occurring disorders or dual diagnoses. Inpatient care also helps patients focus and gain some distance from their environment and stressors.

Inpatient stays are usually 3–5 days, and patients often transition into outpatient care to complete their treatment.

Adult psychiatry

Our inpatient programs include Affective Disorders Units that provide 24-hour, caring supervision and treatment for individuals with a wide range of behavioral health diagnoses including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Psychotic disorders

The Crisis Stabilization Unit at Richland Springs offers the highest level of management for patients with the most severe behavioral health illnesses. Whether you or a loved one is  experiencing symptoms for the first time or has struggled for years, our experts can help. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist, and includes psychologists, nurses, counselors and social workers. They work together to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Treatment includes:

  • One-on-one sessions with the psychiatrist and other therapists
  • Group therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Activity therapy
  • Neuropsychological testing may be used to assist the psychiatrist in making a diagnosis or to assess a patient’s level of functioning

Child and adolescent

Our inpatient treatment program provides 24-hour medically supervised treatment in a therapeutic environment for children 5–18 who have reached crisis stages. Our experienced, compassionate treatment team works with each patient and the family to identify problems and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Our treatment includes:

  • Family conferences
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Play therapy
  • Academic services
  • Medication management
  • Psycho-educational groups
  • Coping skills
  • Music therapy
  • Recreation therapy

We do everything we can to keep your child’s academic progress from being disrupted by treatment. During the school year, patients work on assignments obtained from their own school, and our licensed teachers provide educational assistance for a full two hears each day.

Child and adolescent - partial hospitalization

The Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program follows a Monday–Friday daytime schedule, combining the intensity and structure of an inpatient hospital setting with the flexibility of returning home in the evenings and on weekends. Patients are seen by the psychiatrist daily and participate in the same groups and activities provided for those who are inpatient.

Code numbers for visitors

Upon admission, adult patients and the parent or guardian of minor patients will receive a 5-digit code number (Baptist) or a 4-digit code (Richland Springs). This number is used to ensure privacy and confidentiality.

Patients (or parents or guardians of minors) are responsible for providing this number to family or friends. Anyone visiting must have this code number to gain access to the unit. Anyone calling the unit to leave an emergency message or obtain information about a patient must also provide the code number. If the code number is not provided, the caller will receive no information. Patients are allowed telephone privileges several times throughout the day.
