Adult Inpatient Services

The Adult Inpatient Services provide thorough, individualized diagnosis and treatment alongside stabilization of acute symptoms. Covered by most health insurance providers, our programs are most appropriate for individuals ages 17 and older experiencing psychiatric illness that may be related to mood and anxiety and/or psychotic disorders, with or without co-occurring mental health conditions such as substance use disorders. We offer intensive, short-term, around the clock care, with patient stays varying between 3 and 14 days.

Inpatient treatment is available in two locations, our main campus in Belmont and McLean SouthEast (MSE) in Middleborough. In Belmont, programs include the Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder Inpatient Program, which focuses on acute treatment of psychotic disorders, the Short Term Unit, a program specializing in disorders that respond to crisis intervention including depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorders, and the Community Reintegration Unit, which puts emphasis on helping patients with psychotic disorders regain stability in the least amount of time spent in the hospital. The McLean SouthEast Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Program in Middleborough provides intensive mental health care and resources to patients and families in the southeast region of the state, including Cape Cod and the Islands.

We understand that psychiatric illness affects not only the individual but also the entire family, which is why our compassionate and experienced staff takes a comprehensive approach to treatment and recovery, incorporating loved ones in patient care as appropriate. We utilize evidence-based treatment and therapy models informed by cutting-edge research conducted at McLean and around the world. By incorporating various approaches, treatment can be customized for each individual to help ensure recovery.

Patients follow structured schedules—combining group, family, and individual therapy—targeted at reducing the severity of the patient’s symptoms and focused on different cognitive behavioral therapy strategies to prevent relapse. Designed to engage patients in their recovery, each day is carefully planned with ample time for treatment, self-focus, team meetings, and expressive arts therapy.

“Every single staff member that has helped me has been instrumental in my recovery. I owe my life to the care and guidance I received here.”– Former patient at McLean SouthEast
