About Georgetown Behavioral Health Institute
Georgetown Behavioral Health Institute (GBHI) is a state-of-the-art 118-bed acute care psychiatric hospital offering comprehensive mental healthcare programs and services for adults, teens, active duty military members and older adults. In addition to offering inpatient acute care services, we provide outpatient programs that help support patients as they discharge or as an alternative to hospitalization. Our hospital provides a safe environment staffed by caring and highly educated professionals where we support a person-centered treatment program that promotes stabilization and healing.
Our staff works with each patient individually, addressing each of his or her unique needs through an integrated approach. Our multidisciplinary treatment team includes physicians, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, adjunctive therapists, and dieticians. Patients gain skills in the areas of developing healthy boundaries, learning how to appropriately express emotions, using effective communication skills, increasing self-esteem, managing anger, and developing life skills.
GBHI will serve as an essential component of a recovery-oriented system of care, where individuals can learn to live successfully in recovery with a serious mental illness, and where families can gain knowledge, skills, and coping mechanisms to support their loved ones and themselves. Our evidence-based programs are designed to help individuals live healthy, satisfying, and self-directed lives.
