When someone is suffering from an ongoing or long-term diagnosis it is known as a “persistent psychiatric disorder.” The objective is to help them learn to live with it and manage it effectively on a daily basis. Because Silver Hill is a complete psychiatric hospital we can help every step of the way, depending on the patient’s needs, from inpatient to on-site transitional living, to outpatient treatment.
Inpatient treatment is typically an essential first step in the recovery from mental illness, addiction or various combinations of the two, and most patients who enter Silver Hill Hospital begin here.
This longer-term on-campus-living program is designed for patients who have severe or persistent psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder or bipolar disorder. Our goal is to provide patients the intensive treatment necessary to reduce the signs and symptoms of their illness, improve their interpersonal and family relationships and enhance their skills for independent living.
