Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

A child or adolescent who may be experiencing disorders of thinking, feeling and/or behavior can benefit from visiting our behavioral hospital. Our psychiatrists use knowledge of biological, psychological and social factors to provide the best treatments possible. Therapy and treatments are held in a safe and welcoming environment to ensure that our young patients are comfortable. We treat children ages 3 to 12 and adolescents ages 13 to 17 whose acute symptoms require a safe and therapeutic environment. 

Treatment plans include comprehensive psychiatric and medical assessments, group therapy, medication management, and family involvement. Therapeutic interventions include evidence-based theoretical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and solution-focused therapy. Discharge planning is initiated at the time of admission and revised throughout the hospitalization. A written aftercare plan is developed with the participation of the child/adolescent and family. It includes recommendations for further treatment, and follow-up appointments are scheduled as needed.

Adult Psychiatry

Adult Psychiatry

Our adult psychiatry program provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment for adults for a range of acute psychiatric disorders, including drug and alcohol addiction, depression and anxiety, borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, eating disorders, and trauma-related mental illness. Our team conducts thorough assessments to help psychiatrists determine which treatments are the best fit for each individual. Assessment includes medical history, a physical, psychosocial behavior evaluation and more. Some of the treatments provided include crisis intervention, cognitive-behavioral therapy and detoxification.

Our evidence-based, highly structured and comprehensive treatment program includes group and family therapy, medication management and a variety of other unit activities including recreation and cognitive behavioral therapies. Treatment services are focused on helping patients develop the necessary coping skills to deal with the issues that led to the need for hospitalization. Case Management staff provides discharge services and arrange follow-up care in the community that is individualized for the special needs of each patient.

Geriatric Psychiatry

Geriatric Psychiatry

Our geriatric psychiatry treatment program is designed with people who have lived longer years in mind. For adults age 65 and over, personalized treatment is provided utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, including active participation in group therapy, individual therapy and activity therapy. We work hard to help preserve psychosocial functions, as well as provide caregiver support to aid with this goal. Patients and families receive education on specific disorders, medications and effective coping strategies. Our objective is to assure the continuation of care and facilitate reintegration into the home or community.

Discharge planning is coordinated with regard to individual needs, with follow-up services as appropriate. Many of our patients “step down” to other levels of care offered at the DHR Health Behavioral Hospital, which includes Intensive Outpatient Therapy.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy

Intensive Outpatient Therapy

Not every person who visits our behavioral hospital requires inpatient care. That is why we offer outpatient services to adults 18 and over­ like group, family and individual therapy sessions. Our physicians and counselors help people learn about their diagnoses and symptoms and how to manage them. Our objective is to reduce hospital readmissions and provide long-term support for individuals who have previously received inpatient treatment.

Patient Referral

Patient Referral

Anyone can make an inquiry call to the DHR Health Behavioral Hospital. If an individual is not appropriate for treatment, staff will direct the caller to appropriate services. We work closely with the family, the referring physician and any agencies involved in caring for the individual.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

We are the only facility south of San Antonio to provide this revolutionary treatment option for symptoms of depression. For those individuals whose symptoms of depression have not been alleviated through other means of treatment, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) may be an option. This non-invasive procedure uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain involved with mood control and depression. Treatment is typically provided on an outpatient basis or as prescribed by your physician.
