Behavioral Health Services
Cheyenne Regional Medical Center's Behavioral Health Services offers inpatient and outpatient programs to assess patients' medical, psychological, biological and social needs. Our goal is to help guide patients through recovery and wellness to help them maintain and live a satisfying life.
Appropriate interventions begin immediately. Our multidisciplinary team is complete with psychiatrists, therapists and registered nurses. Patients first undergo a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Following the evaluation, our professional team creates an individual treatment plan focusing on stabilization. This treatment plan may include individual therapy, group therapy, education or medical assistance.
Behavioral Health Services may be appropriate for people with:
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Anxiety Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Marriage and family difficulties
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Psychosis (including schizophrenic disorders).
- Substance abuse disorders
This service may be appropriate for adolescents, adults and seniors. Inpatient care provides a high level of service designed for treatment in a safe, protective environment during a crisis. We are staffed with a Board Certified psychiatrist, licensed therapist, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and psychiatric technicians to provide a safe and healing environment to patients in crisis.
Partial Hospitalization Services
This full-service program on the Behavioral Health Unit is focused on patient safety. Care is provided by psychiatrists, therapists, occupational therapy, registered nurses and chemical dependency counselors. It is a day program intended to provide an environment conducive to stabilizing psychiatric conditions to prevent acute care psychiatric hospitalization. Treatment time is usually provided three hours a day for two to five days a week, and can last anywhere from six to 24 weeks of treatment.
Outpatient services is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, a mental health therapist and nurses. We provide medication management, psychotherapy, child and adolescent, individual, couples and group therapy.
We also offer intensive outpatient therapy in which we focus on addiction—both chemical dependency and substance abuse. This program is overseen by a physician who specializes in addictions.
Once a patient is discharged from a behavioral health program, post-care services may be helpful in sustaining a patient's recovery.
When patients are discharged from our in-patient program they are set up with partial hospitalization or with a therapist for individual therapy. This therapy may be with one of our licensed therapists or a professional in the local community.
