Inpatient Program

Austin Lakes Hospital offers 24-hour inpatient mental health care for adults ages 18 and older and seniors ages 55 and older.

  • Our Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is an inpatient environment for adults who require the highest level of care or crisis stabilization.
  • Inpatient Treatment is designed for adults who are in need of 24-hour hospitalization. This program focuses on crisis intervention, assessment and medication stabilization.
  • Our Senior Adult Program is oriented toward diagnosing, stabilizing and treating the complex issues faced by aging adults. Treatment focuses on the physical, social and mental changes that occur during the aging process.

Outpatient Program

Austin Lakes Hospital also provides a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which consist of comprehensive treatment for adults who do not require 24-hour care. Participants in outpatient programs attend therapy groups during the day or evening and return home after programming.

  • Partial Hospital Program (PHP) is an interdisciplinary approach to healing and stabilization. It can serve as a step down from inpatient care or an alternative to inpatient hospitalization.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows clients to attend group therapy, then return to their home or work environment after programming hours.
