One in five Americans lives with a mental health disorder. Some people deal with mental health challenges at certain times, and others cope with a chronic psychiatric diagnosis throughout life. Some people have a mental health crisis or a severe enough mental health diagnosis that entering inpatient treatment for stabilization and treatment is the best option. The goal is to do what is needed to reduce imminent risks and alleviate emerging symptoms that cause distress. That is often best achieved in a residential psychotherapy setting.

Why Inpatient Psychotherapy Treatment?
The stigma that exists around mental health creates harmful barriers based on misinformation and unconscious – or conscious – preconceived notions. That’s why so many people hesitate to seek inpatient care for a mental health crisis. In contrast, very few would resist being admitted to a hospital for a medical crisis like a ruptured appendix or heart attack. Being admitted and treated by professionals allows patients to become stabilized and receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment protocol so that when they return home, they can continue to receive outpatient care to continue healing.
Similarly, when someone receives residential psychotherapy, they are discharged at the right time, stabilized, and ready to pursue further therapies to maintain mental health. In an inpatient setting, you will feel safe and cared for as you grapple with the challenges you are facing, all while being supported by experienced professionals.
What Happens in Residential Psychotherapy?
As you begin treatment, you will have a team of professionals working in partnership with you. You can expect some of the following:
- Your clinical team, which will include a therapist and a psychiatrist, will consult on your case regarding treatment.
- If you are not already on medication, your psychiatrist will determine which medication best treats your mental health disorder.
- You will work to discover the situations and conditions that led up to your hospitalization.
- Soothing therapeutic activities will help ground you during a period when you are likely in a heightened state of overwhelm – the object is to ease the crisis state that made inpatient treatment your best option.
- As you approach the time for discharge, your treatment team will create a discharge plan that will provide the next steps and goals for continuing treatment on an outpatient basis.
Remember that the goal of your inpatient psychotherapy treatment is to stabilize you while you are in an acute phase of a psychiatric illness that may or may not be chronic in nature. Determining what is happening, why it happened, and how best to treat it are necessary steps to get you back home, managing your condition, and on the way to balance and stability.
