Our Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital is an acute care
facility offering private psychiatric treatment in a secure, comfortable
setting. Patients with a wide variety of psychiatric disorders are
treated by a multidisciplinary treatment team. Our staff is trained to
assess and treat most acute psychiatric illnesses, with the goal of
helping the individual return to normal functioning and reclaim his or
her life in the community. Patients who are abusing alcohol or other
drugs in addition to having a psychiatric disorder can participate in
our Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Program.
The treatment team consists of Board-Certified Psychiatrists and
Internists, a Psychologist, Registered Nurses, Mental Health
Technicians, Licensed Social Workers, Certified Addiction Counselors,
and Art and Recreation Therapists. With a patient's permission, a
patient's family physician is advised of his or her admission and
included in the discharge planning.
Treatment begins with comprehensive psychiatric and physical
evaluations. A customized program is then developed which may include:
Medication Management and Education
Individual and Group Counseling
Dual Diagnosis Groups
