Signs and Symptoms
A full array of coordinated services is available on an outpatient basis. These structured programs focus on resolving problems with the goal of helping a person to regain a fully functioning daily life. The Behavioral Health Center’s professional staff helps patients address emotional, behavioral, social, family and work issues through the use of individual, family and group therapies.
The Adult Partial Hospital Day Program is available Monday – Friday from 9 am – 4 pm. The Adult Intensive Outpatient Program is available Monday – Friday for half-day and evening sessions.
Inpatient services are provided in the Crisis Stabilization Unit, a secure psychiatric unit that provides short-term hospital stays for adults and adolescents who need immediate help, are at risk to themselves or others, or are unable to care for themselves.
Patients on the unit receive care from psychiatrists on the staff of Central DuPage Hospital (CDH), psychiatric nurses and therapists. This team of specialists works together to stabilize the patient and to determine goals leading to a successful discharge plan. Licensed therapists in the unit coordinate care and are the primary contact for the patient and his or her family members. Treatment includes individual, family and group therapy. After a patient is stabilized, he or she will be discharged to outpatient care for continuing support leading to optimum recovery.
The Behavioral Health Center takes the utmost care to protect and preserve each patient’s dignity and confidentiality. Admission to the unit is by direct psychiatrist referral or through assessment in the Emergency Department.
Help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For information or to schedule a confidential evaluation, call 630.933.4000. TTY for the hearing impaired 630.933.4833.
