Behavioral Medicine

The Behavioral Medicine Department is located on the second floor at Trinity East. The Behavioral Medicine Department offers both inpatient and outpatient treatment services to individuals with psychiatric illnesses and/or substance use disorders. Both the Mental Health Program and the Drug and Alcohol Program are certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Mental Health Services

It is the philosophy of the Mental Health Program to provide specialized treatment to those patients who are in varying degrees of acute mental/emotional crisis requiring therapeutic and/or medication intervention. This philosophy is based on the belief that mental health is a multidimensional disease with a broad effect. Mental illness has its own set of progressive symptoms which may be identified and treated. Recovery from an acute mental crisis is maintained by discharge planning and follow-up.

The Mental Health Department is licensed to provide a continuum of services to those patients who are diagnosed with psychiatric illnesses and require acute to post-acute treatment. Therapy services are provided by licensed clinical counselors and licensed social workers.

Acute inpatient services are provided to adults, 18 years of age and older. The unit provides 24-hour nursing care and daily therapy services. Services provided include assessments, group counseling, individual counseling, family counseling, crisis intervention, medication adjustment/stabilization, case management, therapeutic activities, linkage/referral and discharge planning. Most inpatients are admitted after becoming medically stabilized in a local Emergency Department.

The Trinity Behavioral Medicine Department houses a 4-bed crisis stabilization unit. This unit focuses on providing a structured 24-hour setting where individuals can stabilize after a crisis, transition from a more intensive level of care, or prevent admission to a more intensive level of care.

The Intensive Outpatient Mood Disorders Program is staffed by a clinical counselor, a registered nurse and supervised by a psychiatrist. The program hours for the Intensive Outpatient Mood Disorders Program are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9am-12pm. This program focuses on providing intensive treatment for those individuals who have been diagnosed with some of the following diagnoses: Depression, Bi-polar Disorder, Anxiety, Adjustment Disorders, mild Psychosis, etc.

Non-intensive outpatient services are available for individuals ages six and older. Outpatient services provided include assessments, crisis intervention, group counseling, psycho-education, individual counseling, family education, case management, and aftercare. Some outpatient services are school-based.

A diagnostic assessment for admission to one of the outpatient programs or the crisis stabilization unit can be initiated by calling 740.283.7882.
