Inpatient Programs & Services
In addition to our many outpatient programs, Saint Clare’s offers
inpatient units for adult, child, and adolescent patients who require
the resources and safety of a hospital setting.
Adult Crisis Intervention Service (ACIS)
Adult Crisis Intervention Services is a voluntary inpatient unit that provides
behavioral health services to adults 18+ who require hospitalization.
This unit provides comprehensive psychiatric interventions to those who
are in crisis and need stabilization in a secure environment. Our services
are delivered through a multi-disciplinary team - including a psychiatrist,
social workers, registered nurses, and behavioral health counselors -
and include a variety of treatments such as group therapy, individual
counseling, special activities and leisure counseling. The team’s
goal is to assist individuals in developing coping skills to manage life
crises and maintain wellness and recovery.

medical detoxification services to individuals addicted to opioids, alcohol
and benzodiazepines. It is for patients who require a hospital setting
due to acute intoxication or withdrawal, or for those whose chemical dependency
has progressed to the point where an inpatient admission is necessary
to address the severity of their addiction. The Alcohol and Chemical Dependency
Unit provides assessment, consultation and treatment 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.

and adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit. It serves children and adolescents
ages 5 through 17 who have been professionally assessed for psychiatric
hospitalization. The unit utilizes patient and family education and treatment
to develop coping skills and strengthen support system. A comprehensive
post-discharge plan is developed to reduce or prevent future hospitalization.

board certified child psychiatrists, masters-prepared clinicians, registered
nurses, and behavioral health counselors – who work together to
provide the best possible care and the safest environment for young patients.
