Our behavioral health approach

The care we provide is centered on addressing all aspects of wellness through a holistic treatment approach. It focuses on interconnectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit, culture, relationship, context and environment. Each mental health treatment plan is centered specifically on each patient’s wellness and recovery needs, employing inpatient and partial hospitalization care as needed. Treatment plans focus on recovery from life events, such as trauma, to reducing the probability for sustained development or behavioral symptoms.

Inpatient behavioral health services

Our inpatient services are designed to provide intensive treatment to voluntary and involuntary patients 18 years old and older. This program uses an interdisciplinary, therapeutic team approach. We implement patient-centered treatment to promote wellness and recovery with the development of individual coping strategies.

Inpatient treatment plans

Your physician-led care plan may include:

  • Active psychiatric treatment with 24-hour access to a psychiatrist
  • Medication administration and monitoring for patients, if needed
  • After-care plans to address post-hospitalization needs
  • Collaborative care with your community providers during and after the course of treatment

Outpatient partial hospitalization program (PHP)

Parham Doctors' Hospital is dedicated to short-term behavioral health services for adults. This includes our PHPs for adults, which provide an intensive outpatient treatment setting for patients who are having a hard time maintaining daily routines due to anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.

This program serves people who could benefit from intensive behavioral health support and psychiatric evaluation. It provides patients a convenient space devoted to their unique treatment needs. Additionally, it offers flexible treatment options for patients who need a gradual transition from an inpatient stay or who need more structure but do not require inpatient treatment.

The program also provides flexibility for providers who wish to directly admit to the program.

To learn more about our adult PHP, please call us at (804) 672-4380.
