Acute Care

The Acute Care Unit provides a structured, safe environment for patients with severe psychiatric problems. Our services enable these patients to return to the general patient population after a brief period. Involuntary commitments are accepted.

Our Acute Care Unit’s specialized care includes:

  • Separate, 5-bed unit
  • Separate staff and programming
  • Interdisciplinary care
  • Medication adjustment and management
  • Involvement in programing as patient can tolerate

This Acute Service is designed to be short term. Most patients are transferred to this unit from another Behavioral Health service.

We have someone available to answer your needs quickly. Call our triage office at 252-847-8791 or page 252-413-4117, and a psychiatric triage counselor will respond in 15 minutes or less.
