Our Inpatient Unit provides rapid stabilization under close psychiatric supervision to patients who are in acute crisis, or who are a danger to themselves or others. These servces are provided through our parent organization at the main campus of Salina Regional Health Center located adjacent to Veridian Behavioral Health.
Once stabilized, patients are actively involved in their care. The treatment team completes a thorough evaluation and tailors a treatment plan specifically to the patient.
Therapy modalities include daily psychiatric consultation, group and individual therapy, recreational therapy and other interventions designed to improve daily life functioning. Family is encouraged to remain an active part of the treatment process.
Our goal is to assist patients in understanding their problems and developing more effective coping skills. To accomplish this, staff members encourage self-exploration, self-expression, rational thinking, insight, creativity, interaction with peers and family, as well as addressing the physical aspects of mental illness.
