Behavioral Health Program for Adults
Many adults face psychiatric issues and disorders that complicate their ability to go about their daily life routine. Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness, sleep disturbances, mood swings, suicidal ideation and other psychiatric symptoms can make it extremely difficult to manage work, family responsibilities and unexpected stressors.
Adult treatment programs at Friends Hospital are designed to help individuals ages 18 to 65 understand their condition and develop healthy alternative behaviors. The hospital has several specialized adult units to meet the varied needs of our patients. This includes an intensive adult unit for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and our recovery unit, Philadelphia’s first inpatient psychiatric unit designed around the recovery-oriented care model.
A no-cost, confidential assessment conducted at admission helps us determine the most appropriate program and unit for each adult patient. Our goal is to provide patients with the resources they need to make positive changes and lead a fuller, more productive life.
