Georgetown Behavioral Health Institute is a 118-bed acute care psychiatric hospital offering comprehensive mental healthcare programs and services for adults, teens, active duty military members and older adults. In addition to offering inpatient acute care services, they provide outpatient programs that help support patients as they discharge or as an alternative to hospitalization. Georgetown provides a safe environment staffed by caring and highly educated professionals where they support a person-centered treatment program that promotes stabilization and healing.
Georgetown staff works with each patient individually, addressing each of their unique needs through an integrated approach. Their multidisciplinary treatment team includes physicians, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, adjunctive therapists, and dieticians. Patients gain skills in the areas of developing healthy boundaries, learning how to appropriately express emotions, using effective communication skills, increasing self-esteem, managing anger, and developing life skills.
GBHI will serve as an essential component of a recovery-oriented system of care, where individuals can learn to live successfully in recovery with a serious mental illness, and where families can gain knowledge, skills, and coping mechanisms to support their loved ones and themselves. Their evidence-based programs are designed to help individuals live healthy, satisfying, and self-directed lives.
Georgetown’s mission and vision is to offer unsurpassed care to each and every patient who participates in any of their programs. To achieve their goals, Georgetown’s management and medical staff work closely with individual patients, their physicians, and their families to create and implement treatment that will directly address their needs both in our programs and through aftercare planning.
