What are my options for behavioral health care at Mountain States Health Alliance?
- Inpatient Care
Because this level of care is for patients in the advanced stages of an addiction or mental health problem, inpatient care is delivered around the clock in a hospital that has medical staff. Treatment also includes recreation, arts and therapeutic healing gardens. Medication therapy (psychopharmacology) may also be used to treat patients.
- Intensive Outpatient Care
This setting is a middle ground between outpatient and inpatient care. While the patient requires more intensive care than an outpatient program provides, he or she also is better able to manage daily affairs than patients in an inpatient program. Intensive outpatient care can last anywhere from three to eight hours for two to five days a week.
