As an acute care adult inpatient psychiatric unit, The Behavioral Health Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital offers a full spectrum of psychiatric services and medical care. We treat those coping with depression, psychosis and other mental illnesses. Medical concerns often co-exist with mental illness, so we focus on caring for the combined needs of our patients.
Our center offers a warm and welcoming environment, and our staff provides expert, personalized care. Individuals can admit themselves to The Behavioral Health Center or be referred by a family member, physician or other healthcare provider.
During their stay, patients work with an interdisciplinary team of highly trained physicians, nurses, counselors, social workers and activity-therapy staff. Together, we determine the best treatment options to help each patient achieve his or her recovery goals.
The services and treatment options we offer are based on best practices for physical and psychiatric wellness and emphasize the mind-body connection. Services include:
- Medication management and education
- Dietary education
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
- Activity groups
- Journaling groups
- Guided relaxation
- Patient community meetings
To support a successful transition back to the community, we carefully collaborate with our patients and their support system to assist with discharge from our program.
