St. Charles, Missouri Premier Inpatient Treatment for Adults

When you’re suffering from an emotional crisis, it’s crucial to get appropriate support as soon as possible. CenterPointe Hospital provides personalized inpatient programming for adults who are struggling with various behavioral health conditions, substance use disorders, and dual diagnosis concerns, helping them develop the return-to-life strategies they need to begin healing.

About Our Adult Inpatient Program

CenterPointe Hospital provides clinically excellent inpatient programming that is intended to help people achieve stabilization when they are struggling to function or may be at risk for harming themselves or others. This program serves adults age 18 and older who are suffering from moderate to severe behavioral health concerns, such as: 

  • Major depressive disorder 
  • Suicidal ideation 
  • Self-harm 
  • Panic disorder 
  • Schizophrenia  
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) 
  • Grief and loss 

We can also provide care for people who have a substance use disorder, along with adults who have a dual diagnosis, which means that they have both a behavioral health concern and a substance use disorder. We most often help people find recovery from addictions to the following substances: 

  • Opioids 
  • Benzodiazepines 
  • Alcohol 

Hospitalization is usually best for those who need round-the-clock care to reach their therapeutic goals. This highly structured program focuses on helping you function better, identify environmental supports, and increase coping skills. 

The average length of stay in the adult inpatient program at our hospital in St. Charles, Missouri, is about seven to 10 days, but our expert team will work directly with you to determine the most appropriate time for you to take the next steps in your healing process.

The Care Experience

At CenterPointe Hospital, our goal is to help people more effectively cope with intense emotions and develop healthier ways to manage any behaviors that may be interfering with their ability to live a happy, productive life.  

Following a detailed assessment of your needs, we will create a care plan that is tailored specifically to you. Your plan will include the therapies and services that can offer you the best chance of success. 

Group therapy is the main form of treatment we use in this program, with process, psychoeducational, and experiential groups offered each day. Depending on your specific therapeutic goals, the topics you discuss during group sessions might include learning coping skills, developing healthy relationships, and discharge planning. Individual and family therapies are available based on individual need. Your care team may also recommend: 

  • On-site medical detoxification 
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) 
  • Medication management 
  • Basic medical care 

Throughout your time at our hospital in St. Charles, Missouri, we will monitor you regularly to make sure that you continue to make progress. We believe that healing should be a collaborative process, so we will work closely with you to make any necessary adjustments to your care plan along the way. 

Admissions Process

If you’re struggling with a severe behavioral health condition, substance use disorder, or dual diagnosis concern, the last thing you want is to delay treatment because of confusing procedures or a lot of paperwork. That’s why we have designed the admissions process at CenterPointe Hospital to be as efficient as possible. 

Our caring and compassionate assessment staff is available anytime, day or night, so you can reach out whenever it is convenient for you. While we do not require appointments to get an initial assessment, we do recommend calling ahead before coming to our hospital. 

During the assessment process, a member of our team will have a conversation with you about your current needs. This may include gathering some information about your: 

  • Treatment history 
  • Medical history 
  • Psychiatric history 
  • Social history 
  • Presenting symptoms 

If we determine that the adult inpatient program at our hospital in St. Charles, Missouri, is the best fit for you, we will guide you through the rest of the admissions process. However, if we believe that another facility may be better suited to meet your needs, we will refer you to a hospital we have vetted and trust.
