When senior adults receive specialized care that is designed for their unique life stage, it can make a life-changing difference. At CenterPointe Hospital, we created the Silver Lining inpatient program specifically for seniors whose lives have been disrupted by various behavioral health and substance use disorders.
There are many reasons why older adults might be struggling to cope with intense emotions or daily stressors. They may be grieving for people they’ve lost, feeling distressed about their declining physical health, or having trouble thinking as clearly as they used to. And these factors can put them at risk for developing a substance use disorder or a behavioral health condition.
At CenterPointe Hospital, we offer the Silver Lining program for seniors age 65 and older. This program provides inpatient treatment for older adults who are suffering from behavioral health conditions such as severe depression, anxiety disorders, and bipolar disorder, along with those who are struggling with substance use disorders and dual diagnosis concerns.
Hospitalization is typically best for people who need round-the-clock support to help them regain a sense of safety and emotional stability. While everyone heals at their own pace, most people receive care through the Silver Lining program at our St. Charles, Missouri, hospital for about seven to 10 days. We evaluate each person’s progress to determine when they should take the next steps on their healing journey.
There are no age limits for those who can participate in this program. We assess everyone individually to determine whether this program is right for them.
