Adult Services

Behavioral Health Adult Services

St. Joseph Behavioral Health's staff of mental health professionals is available to respond to calls or walk-in (physician referrals are not required) inquiries regarding adults age 18 and older. Free, confidential screenings can be scheduled to identify issues that impair day-to-day functioning. Inpatient and/or intensive outpatient psychiatric and substance abuse programs are available.

A dedicated unit focuses on conditions such as anxiety/panic attacks, chemical dependencies and addictions, and depression in a calming healing environment.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy

Intensive outpatient therapy provides an intermediate level of structured psychiatric treatment for those who don't require 24-hour inpatient care. St. Joseph Behavioral Health's program utilizes evidence-based approaches to effectively treat mental health disorders and addiction.

IOP can help patients make noticeable progress in a relatively short period of time through medical oversight by a psychiatrist and therapy provided by licensed therapists.

Intensive outpatient therapy sessions are three days a week, three hours each session, for a total of nine hours a week. For a free confidential assessment or additional information, call (260) 425-3606 or 1-800-694-9034.

Once patients complete IOP, aftercare is available weekly at no charge for those who desire further therapeutic support to prevent relapse. Aftercare sessions are provided on Tuesdays at 1 p.m.
