The Inpatient Psychiatric Service provides acute inpatient psychiatric care for patients. Initial treatment includes thorough interviews by nursing staff, psychiatrists and case managers and 24 hours of observation on the Inpatient ward. Patients will attend individual and group sessions and participate in various therapeutic milieu activities. When appropriate, medications are used to address behavioral health symptoms. For Soldiers there will be a meeting with their provider and his/her Chain of Command prior to discharge to review the factors leading to the crisis and address them appropriately. Additionally, for all patients, meetings with the family members are conducted as necessary to assist in the evaluation of treatment. Comprehensive treatment plans are developed during admission and upon discharge.
