Mental Health Program
When dealing with mental health conditions, each patient requires a treatment program focused on his or her needs. At Loretto, we believe that quality behavioral health and wellness services should be available to everyone. Our psychiatric care services are designed to put patients on a lifelong path to mental, emotional and physical wellness.
Inpatient Care Units
Our inpatient psychiatric care units are supported by an array of treatment programs. We conduct assessments of each patient prior to admission, and work closely with the staff to align patients with doctors that specialize in the necessary areas of expertise. Once patients are admitted, we offer them 24-hour care and treatment in a secure environment.
Inpatient Psychiatric Admission
Our psychiatric admission procedures are simple and efficient. We offer direct admission under a physician of choice, or assign the patient to a physician. Individuals who are admitted to the psychiatric care unit will also be able to access other health care services offered by Loretto Hospital.
Referrals to the adult psychiatric unit can be made by the patient, family members, physicians, counselors, social service agencies, employers, ministers, teachers, or as a result of a crisis intervention.
For more information about our Mental Health Program and psychiatric services call (773) 854-5320.
Loretto Hospital’s behavioral health services also offer patients the opportunity to participate in programs on an outpatient basis. Our team of psychiatrists, social workers, counselors and case manager’s work together to devise an equally effective treatment plan for those patients who are not admitted into the hospital.
We offer a variety of outpatient services, including:
- Psychiatric care and supervision of medication
- Individual, family and group therapy/counseling
- Dual diagnosis treatment for persons experiencing difficulty with psychiatric disorders and substance abuse
- Case management that provides assistance with finances, housing, medical care and coordination with other providers in the community
- Aftercare services for patients who are discharged from state-operated facilities
Our programs are fully accredited and covered by most insurance programs including Medicaid and Medicare. For more information about our outpatient behavioral health services call the Outpatient Behavioral Health Center at (773) 854-5290 anytime between Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
