Adult Mental Health Program
The Thorek Memorial Hospital Adult Mental Health Program is a clinically directed program designed to provide comprehensive mental health treatment to patients, 18 years of age or older, in a calming and comfortable environment.
Our mental health professionals help patients to regain emotional health and well-being. When a patient is admitted into the program, a supportive and experienced team of specialists will work with that patient to develop an individualized treatment plan. This personalized plan will address the patient's immediate needs and establish goals for ongoing treatment. The treatment process includes individual, group and family therapies, along with various expressive and relaxation therapy programs.
Our 39-bed adult inpatient mental health unit provides a state-of-the-art, patient-safe design that takes into consideration the special needs of mental health patients. The floor design includes semi-private rooms, a large group recreation area and a separate dining room. Private interview and examination rooms are also available for physicians' use.
