Adult Inpatient Services
In some situations, inpatient evaluation and treatment is the best setting for recovery. Our Adult Inpatient Team sees people 18 and older who are experiencing serious and acute mental illness, and individuals who have co-occurring substance use concerns. The Adult Inpatient Unit provides both voluntary and involuntary care.
If you or someone you know is in a behavioral health crisis and may be in need of inpatient evaluation and treatment services, call the Volunteers of America Crisis Call Line at 1-888-910-0416 where professional staff are available 24/7 to offer assistance and will determine the level of crisis services needed. Dependent on the level of need, this may include dispatching the KMHS Designated Crisis Response Team for emergency assessment. Following assessment, referrals to inpatient care may be made if necessary for involuntary or voluntary detention in our evaluation and treatment center or other psychiatric facility or substance use treatment facility. DCRs seek to assist people in crisis with the least restrictive services needed to support them in their recovery.
Adults are on average at the Inpatient Unit for 11 days, but the length depends on the individual’s needs and the development of a safe discharge plan. When leaving inpatient care, individuals are linked to community-based, outpatient, and residential services to aid in the transition back home.
Visitor Hours for the Adult Inpatient Unit are:
Monday – Friday 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely.
