Halifax Health - Adult Behavioral Services


Halifax Health - Behavioral Services for adults offers acute adult psychiatric treatment as well as outpatient psychiatric and therapy services.  Our goal is to help maximize individual life skills and functioning.

Halifax Health has a treatment philosophy that centers on four main concepts:

Holistic View of Individuals:

A holistic view starts with the process of self-knowledge.  This process is the connection of mental and physical health and how they work together to achieve overall health and well being.

Treatment Team Approach:

The Interdisciplinary Treatment Team is at the core of the treatment program. Patients are assessed by individual disciplines (i.e., physicians, nurses, social workers, recreation therapies, etc) who then coordinate treatment planning, goal setting and treatment implementation with the patient. Each team member that impacts a patient's recovery has input into the treatment planning process.

Eclectic Treatment Approach:

Treatment is individualized and various interventions are utilized to assure the most positive results. 

A Patient Participatory Treatment Program:

Patients are strongly encouraged to take an active role in their treatment. Patients are provided with many opportunities to give their input and opinion.

Our inpatient treatment program accepts patients who are ordered by a physician to admitted for acute stabilization. Adolescents age 14 and older can also be admitted if they are inappropriate for placement. Patients who are medically unstable are stabilized on a medical floor prior to admission to the unit. Patients solely in need of detoxification from alcohol/drugs with no other psychiatric issues are not appropriate for admission.

Our Visiting Hours are:

Monday through Friday 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays 2:00 to 4:00 pm, 

and 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
