Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment at Las Encinas is designed to provide rapid stabilization in a carefully structured, safe, medically appropriate environment. Inpatient treatment offers close supervision for patients who are in need of hospitalization due to their medical or emotional status.  An individualized treatment plan is provided for each patient, which includes an interdisciplinary team approach. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and may include a licensed therapist, psychiatric nurse, activity/recreational therapist, clinical social worker, and mental health workers. Group therapies and activities are provided for patients receiving treatment for psychiatric disorders as well as co-occurring disorders. Many patients also chose to work with one of the psychologists affiliated with Las Encinas Hospital while they are in treatment.
