Sometimes life feels too difficult to handle. When you are facing a serious mental illness, such as severe mood disorders, or a personality disorder, you might benefit from intensive treatment in an inpatient psychiatric hospital.

Our experienced, licensed psychiatrists, psychologists, and other behavioral health providers specialize in helping adults regain control of their lives through intensive psychiatric therapy. We offer traditional treatments, including individual, group, and family therapy.

Inpatient psychiatric hospital units at AHN

When things feel out of control, it’s important that you feel at home in your surroundings. Our inpatient units allow you to share experiences with people like you in a comfortable, peaceful environment.

All of our units have:

  • Dining and lounge areas
  • Laundry facilities
  • Designated areas for recreational and occupational therapy

When necessary, patients who seek mental health treatment at our emergency departments can receive an evaluation to determine whether they would benefit from inpatient services. After a medical assessment, a psychiatrist or needs assessment counselor can connect you to the appropriate services.

During your stay, you have access to our compassionate psychiatric care teams and evidence-based treatment practices.

Improving access to care at the center for inclusion health

If you are having trouble accessing mental or behavioral health services, you may be eligible for care at our Center for Inclusion Health (CIH) in Pittsburgh. The CIH uses creative, coordinated, and compassionate primary care models to improve healthcare access to people in the greater Pittsburgh area.
