At Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital, our goal is to provide personalized treatment for those who are suffering from mental health disorders and co-occurring addictions.

Our continuum of care is designed to give our community options when it comes to receiving effective behavioral health treatment. We provide premier inpatient care for children ages 5-12, adolescents ages 13-17, adults age 18 and older, and senior adults age 55 and older. We also offer outpatient care for adolescents and adults.

Inpatient Programming

Mental health concerns can affect people differently depending on their age, so we believe that we can most effectively treat our patients when we consider their developmental needs. Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital offers age-appropriate treatment in the following units: 

  • Children ages 5-12 
  • Adolescents ages 13-17 
  • Adults age 18 and older 
  • Senior adults age 55 and older 

We designed our inpatient programming to help patients who are experiencing acute symptoms of mental health concerns stabilize so that they can return home or step down to a lower level of care.  

Each patient who receives inpatient care at our hospital completes a thorough evaluation that can help our team create a personalized treatment plan for them. This plan includes a tailored combination of the therapies and services we offer, such as: 

  • Evidence-based therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) that can help patients identify and alter negative thought and behavioral patterns 
  • Basic medical care provided by a medical doctor and nurses 
  • Medication management services, including meetings with a psychiatrist five times per week in addition to regular monitoring by our nursing staff 
  • Detoxification services for patients who have co-occurring substance use disorders 
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for patients who are struggling with addictions to opioids and need help managing opioid withdrawal symptoms 
  • Individual and family therapy sessions provided by social workers on an as-needed basis 
  • Group therapy sessions led by social workers, counselors, or nurses two times per day 
  • Aftercare planning, which may include referrals to a lower level of care and other community resources 

Those who receive care at Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital can benefit from our expertise, research-based treatments, and supportive environment. We strive to help patients gain the tools they need to heal. Patients in each unit can learn age-appropriate skills during counseling sessions. For example, children may learn about emotion regulation, family dynamics, and skills for handling the effects of trauma. Adolescents may learn about life skills, coping strategies, and how to handle academic stress. Senior adults may learn about topics such as caregiver stress, the loss of a loved one, and managing cognitive impairments that can come with aging.  

The typical length of stay in our inpatient programs is five to seven days, but each patient’s actual length of stay depends on their needs and progress. Stays are often short, as the purpose of our inpatient program is to help patients stabilize as quickly as possible and form a foundation for ongoing healing that allows them to step down to a lower level of care.

Our Approach to Mental Health Treatment

Making the decision to get treatment for mental health or addiction concerns can be intimidating. We recognize that patients must feel confident in their decision, knowing that they will receive immediate care that not only addresses the concerns they have but also prepares them for success once their time in treatment has come to an end. Our carefully tailored treatment plans can help patients understand what to expect during their time with us.  

Children, adolescents, adults, and senior adults who participate in our programming can expect the following at Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital: 

  • Thorough evaluations: From the moment you call our admissions team, we make every effort to learn about your background, symptoms, and therapeutic needs. Each of our patients completes a thorough evaluation, which is then reviewed by our team of psychiatrists and clinicians.  
  • Customized treatment plans: Whether a patient participates in inpatient or outpatient programming, they follow a customized treatment plan. Our team creates this plan based on the information they gather from the patient’s evaluation.  
  • Evidence-based therapies: We provide evidence-based therapies like motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy to help our patients learn new skills.  
  • Supportive treatment team: Our medical and mental health professionals work together to create a supportive environment for our patients.  
  • A continuum of care: We provide multiple levels of care, so we can support patients whether they need stabilization services or flexible care that allows them to continue attending school or going to work. 
  • Aftercare planning: A team including a physician, nurses, a social worker, and a case manager creates a discharge plan for each patient. This plan can include referrals for outpatient services, community meetings, and medication management services. 

At Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital, our goal is to provide the compassionate support you need to live a healthier, happier life. Our continuum of care is designed to give our community options when it comes to receiving effective behavioral health treatment.
