The adult acute program is for patients 18 or older.
Kootenai Health’s adult behavioral health program provides a safe, structured and therapeutic environment designed to stabilize adults who are experiencing severe impairment from mental illness.
The treatment team develops an individualized treatment plan designed to meet the specific needs of each adult through strengths-based assessment and intervention. Treatment may include medication management, family participation, group and individual therapy and education.
Individuals are actively encouraged to participate in their treatment with a focus on symptom management, utilization of coping skills and clear discharge planning. Staff work closely with community providers to enhance recovery and community reintegration.
Those who have worked directly with and in our program have these things to say about our team: “They do a lot of wonderful things in this unit- I’ve seen them bring people back to life.” “They really help people see hope in their lives.” “That staff helps patients re-establish hope. Money can’t buy that.”
