Adult Programs

Adult Programs

Cypress Creek Hospital treats adults (ages 18 and older) for a variety of behavioral health needs, including mental illness and substance abuse. We offer inpatient and outpatient programs to accommodate the severity and needs of each patient.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
is an inpatient setting for adults who need the highest level of nursing care or crisis intervention.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows patients to attend group therapy during evening hours and return home afterward.

Inpatient care is for adults who need 24-hour hospitalization. This program focuses on crisis intervention, assessment, and medication stabilization.

Dual-diagnosis care treats adults who have both acute psychiatric and chemical dependency issues. This program focuses on psychiatric stabilization and the 12-step model for substance abuse treatment.

Partial hospitalization (day treatment) is for adults who need intensive care but do not need to stay overnight. The program may be adapted to mornings, afternoons, and partial weeks.

What is Treatment?

Treatment begins with a complete assessment by a nurse and physician. Based on this assessment, an individualized treatment plan is developed. It consists of individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy, in which patients speak with peers facing similar issues. Medication may be used to aid therapy if needed. Nurses, therapy staff, physicians, and discharge planners work together to maximize the benefits of treatment.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Though it may seem startling, Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a common procedure in which a small amount of electrical current is sent to the brain. This current induces a seizure that affects the entire brain, including the parts that control mood, appetite, and sleep. ECT is extremely effective in cases of severe depression.
