Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitalization

The GW Hospital 20-bed unit for adults aged 18 and older offers a range of psychiatric and dual-diagnosis treatments. The unit offers a highly structured mental health treatment program with 24-hour nursing in a locked, secure setting. The short-term stabilization unit is designed to help patients move through a mental health crisis and gain the coping skills and resources necessary to successfully transition to the next stage of treatment. Each adult works with a multidisciplinary psychiatric team including a psychiatrist, social worker, nurses, mental health technicians and a therapist to identify and meet treatment objections and achieve stabilization.
