Our programs focuses on treating adults with various types of psychiatric illness such as depression, anxiety, psychotic disorders, delusional disorders, and other related mood and thought disorders, with and without co-occurring diagnoses like alcohol and drug abuse.
With permission of the patient, we welcome and encourage family members and significant people in the patient’s life to be involved in care. Family support is a routine part of treatment.
Smoking policies vary from program to program, however, smoking is strongly discouraged, and most McLean Hospital programs support smoking cessation as a component of treatment.

McLean is dedicated to maintaining high-quality and effective patient care. To ensure that those standards remain at the highest level, we utilize many feedback instruments and quality indicators. Among these tools are the Perceptions of Care survey which monitors patient satisfaction and BASIS-24™, a psychiatric outcomes measurement tool created at McLean and widely used in the US and around the world, which delivers feedback on the patient care experience.
