Las Encinas Hospital and Recovery Center in Pasadena, California, offers a full range of behavioral health services for adults experiencing mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety and psychotic disorders. We also treat co-occurring disorders, which generally refers to mental health issues that occur simultaneously with chemical dependency. Our facility has multiple inpatient treatment units for voluntary patients, as well as separate units for involuntary patients, and provides intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for those who don’t need consistent monitoring.

Inpatient Mental Health Treatment

Inpatient treatment at Las Encinas is designed to provide rapid stabilization in a carefully structured, safe and medically appropriate environment. Our adult inpatient program offers close supervision for patients who need hospitalization because their medical or emotional state could put them or others at risk of harm. An individualized treatment plan is provided for each patient, which is founded on an interdisciplinary team approach.

Each patient’s treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and may also include a licensed therapist, psychiatric nurse, activity/recreational therapist, clinical social worker and additional mental health professionals, such as a chemical-dependency counselor or dietitian, if necessary. During the course of inpatient mental health treatment, group therapy and activities are provided for individuals admitted to the hospital for psychiatric illness, as well as co-occurring disorders. Patients also have the opportunity to work with a psychologist who is affiliated with Las Encinas Hospital while they are receiving inpatient treatment.
