Behavioral Health Behavioral Health

Behavioral health issues can be debilitating and disrupt every aspect of an individual’s life, from health and relationships to one’s education and career. It’s estimated that one in 10 Americans will experience depression during their lifetimes – not to mention other mental health concerns. Our Adult Psychiatric Program is dedicated to helping adults ages 18 and older address issues, develop coping skills, and regain quality of life.

Treatment includes:

  • A comprehensive evaluation by a board certified psychiatrist
  • Evidence-based treatment

Based at our main campus in Princeton, our inpatient psychiatric program is impactful, evidence-based, and tailored to the individual needs of each patient. A separate wing is available for patients with psychiatric issues with no co-occurring addiction.

Patients typically spend five to 14 days in an inpatient unit. Once admitted, each patient is evaluated by a board certified psychiatrist within 24 hours.

Inpatients can also receive care for any co-existing medical issues from a team of family practitioners and internists at Princeton Health. A patient can be transferred seamlessly to the Princeton Medical Center if acute medical care is needed.

OUTPATIENT LOCATIONS: Princeton/Adults, Hamilton, North Brunswick, Moorestown, Eatontown

As adults, many of us encounter setbacks or stress-inducing scenarios in life at one point or another. When situations like the loss of a job, a change in career, returning to school, divorce, or other relationship issues impact the ability to function productively, the Adult Psychiatric Outpatient Program can help. In addition to helping adults with mental health issues at four outpatient sites, our Princeton/Adults site offers an Adult Gateway program for those dealing with more chronic mental illness or frequent hospitalizations.

Through the outpatient program, we help our patients to:

  • Improve coping and problem-solving skills, including emotion management
  • Enhance functioning at home, work, and school
  • Maintain physical well-being
  • Restore lifestyle balance and stability
  • Depending on needs, treatment options include:

Partial hospital program: six hours per day, five days per week
Intensive outpatient program: three hours per day, three days per week
Lunch is provided for full-day programs, and free transportation may be available within defined areas.
