When you’re struggling with a behavioral health disorder or an addiction, it can keep you from being your best self. Maple Heights Behavioral Health offers personalized inpatient programming for those who need acute care for psychiatric concerns and addictions.
Adult Inpatient Program
Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, just a short drive from the downtown area, Maple Heights Behavioral Health provides inpatient programming for adults age 18 and older who are in crisis and need immediate intervention. We serve people who are suffering from behavioral health concerns like severe depression, anxiety, self-injury, and suicidal ideation. We also support those who are struggling with the use of substances like alcohol, heroin, and methamphetamine.
Hospitalization is usually best for people who need round-the-clock care to achieve emotional stability, regain a sense of safety, and start functioning better. Inpatient stays are usually short because the goal is for a person to transition to a lower level of care or return home safely. For this reason, the average inpatient stay at Maple Heights Behavioral Health is about five to seven days. However, this can vary depending on a person’s specific needs.
Senior Inpatient Program
Behavioral health disorders and addictions typically impact older adults differently, so their care should reflect these differences. To ensure that seniors receive support that can address the needs that are unique to their age group, we have a separate inpatient unit specifically for older adults age 55 and older.
At this level of care, the experience is usually short, with most older adults receiving inpatient treatment for about seven to 10 days. But everyone heals at their own pace, so the exact amount of time someone remains hospitalized can vary based on their individual circumstances.
What to Expect
At Maple Heights Behavioral Health, we individualize each person’s care to meet their unique needs and therapeutic goals. Our experts will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and current symptoms. This allows us to create a personalized care plan that includes the therapies and services that may best prepare you for success.
If you are struggling with a substance use disorder, your recovery process might begin with our detoxification services. Detox can allow you to safely complete the withdrawal process under the supervision of highly experienced professionals. After completing withdrawal, your care team may recommend supporting your recovery journey with medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines prescription medication and counseling.
A key focus of our inpatient programming is group therapy, so patients typically take part in multiple types of groups each day, such as daily living skills, recreational therapy, process, and goal setting groups. The highly experienced professionals who lead these groups tailor the discussions to the needs outlined in your care plan. You might learn new life skills, receive medication education, or talk about healthier ways to cope with difficult emotions.
Depending on your specific goals, your care team may also recommend that you participate in individual and family therapies during your time at our Fort Wayne, Indiana, hospital. If you take prescription medication to support your healing process, you may also meet with a psychiatrist five days a week, and our nursing staff will monitor and administer your medication.
The impact of a behavioral health or substance use disorder can be devastating, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Let the experts at Maple Heights Behavioral Health help you get on the path to a better, brighter future.
