Why Choose Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatment is short-term in nature and is an ideal option for patients who need immediate help for acute symptoms or are in a state of crisis. A person’s stay in our general inpatient mental health program will typically last five to seven days. Those who receive care in our addiction program will normally stay for three to five days. However, the exact length of time a patient will spend in our inpatient program can vary depending on their needs. 

While in our inpatient program, patients will have the opportunity to receive a number of different services. Depending on their individualized treatment plan, patients may engage in group therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy.  

Our multidisciplinary team of professionals includes licensed clinical professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, psychiatrists, recreational therapists, art therapists, dietitians, and clinicians who specialize in electroconvulsive therapy. When needed, patients can also receive medication management services and medical care, which will be provided by registered nurses, medical doctors, and advanced practice nurses. 

Everyone on the team at Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital has an unwavering dedication to meeting the needs of patients in a way that helps them feel encouraged and supported as they work through the treatment process. 


Our admissions department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients can call us directly to schedule an intake appointment, or they can walk in at whatever time is convenient for them. We also partner with a number of professionals, including outpatient providers and other inpatient hospitals, who can provide referrals. 

After you have received an intake assessment, our admissions team will contact the on-call psychiatrist to get an order for admission. We will then guide you through a comprehensive evaluation and have you participate in a safety assessment to make sure that our program can offer the specific care you need. 

We understand that the registration process can seem overwhelming, so our team makes every effort to keep it as simple and straightforward as possible. We will work with your insurance company to determine your coverage, or we will work with you to sort out alternative arrangements.  

At the time that you receive all the necessary paperwork, our team will walk you through what you can expect during your time in our care.  

If you have any questions about our adult inpatient program, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
