During Your Stay

Work With a Multidisciplinary Team



Responsible for coordinating your overall care, prescribing medication and other procedures that are appropriate components of your treatment. The physician is the only team member with the authority to discharge you.

Staff Nurse

Performs duties as prescribed by a physician, including administering medication, observing your behavior, and reporting on your conditions to treatment team members.

Patient Care
Assistant (PCA)

Assists you through your daily routine.


Provides therapy through games, crafts, leisure education, creative expression, relaxation training and more.

Social Worker

Provides individual and family therapy and acts as the liaison between you, your family, and the treatment team.

After Your Stay

Before you leave the hospital, you will meet with a therapist who will go over the discharge plan with you. This is a chance for you to ask questions about your medications and follow-up. In many cases, patients participate in one of our outpatient treatment programs to facilitate the transition back to everyday life.
