The community's first choice for quality mental health care is Behavioral Health Services at Morton Plant Hospital. For more than 20 years, we have provided inpatient treatment to those suffering from a personal crisis or mental illness that requires treatment in a structured, supervised setting.
Inpatient treatment consists of individual and group sessions, activity therapy, medication therapy and social work services. Programs are designed to fit a patient’s individual needs, while helping to restore his or her ability to function as independently as possible. A qualified team of professionals, led by a psychiatrist, assists patients in the treatment process.
