Silver Hill Hospital: Your Path to Mental Health Begins Here

Silver Hill is a nationally recognized, non-profit hospital for the treatment of psychiatric and addictive disorders, a unique and extraordinary place that people have relied on since 1931 to help them find the path back to mental health and wellness.
 

Adolescent and adult patients have the advantage of our unusually broad and comprehensive range of programs because Silver Hill is a psychiatric hospital providing both inpatient and extended on-site residential treatment programs within its extraordinary campus.

Here the combination of an expert clinical staff totally focused on the patient’s recovery and an environment conducive to healing make Silver Hill a hospital that doesn’t “feel” like a hospital, but rather like a comfortable place in the Connecticut countryside.

Watch this short video to hear Dr. Sigurd Ackerman, President and Medical Director, describe what makes Silver Hill special.
 



Trusted by Doctors, Their Patients and Families

Whether for inpatient or longer-term on-campus treatment or intensive outpatient services, families trust Silver Hill. Doctors have confidently referred their adult and adolescent patients here for eight decades.  We try to earn that trust every day.

"I'm using the tools I was given every day to keep my chronic pain in perspective. It has allowed me to resume my life and to really live again. I'm back being the person I used to be and am meant to be - happy, busy, active, social, adventurous, a mom, a wife; a person who loves life and appreciates everything I have and almost lost. More importantly, I have my smile back." - Lauren
 









Treatment Works

At Silver Hill, we know treatment works because we have collected the data to prove it. Patients in our residential addiction, co-occurring disorders and chronic pain programs participate in a follow-up program for 12 months after discharge. View the treatment outcomes for our Chronic Pain and Recovery Center program. View the treatment outcomes for our Addiction and Co-Occurring residential programs.

News and Events
Traditionally, summer was a time for kids and their parents to relax and enjoy some unstructured days – a chance to decompress, have fun and play. But thanks to the ubiquity of personal technology, as well as the increasing number of scheduled summer activities, the summer can feel an awful lot like the hectic, plugged-in school year for some families.
When you are dealing with a mental illness, or any condition for that matter, it's extremely important to become an advocate for yourself and make sure you have a voice in your treatment plan. Most likely your treatment team will consist of a psychiatrist, a psychologist and/or a social worker. These professionals know the intricate details of mental illnesses, how they typically present and what is the best first step in treatment.
