Inpatient Services

Aging adults have unique physical, emotional and social needs. Our goal at BRG is to promote a healthy lifestyle to address all patient needs through education, medication management and psychotherapy. We offer treatment in our hospital for adults age 50 and above who suffer from mental health disorders, dual diagnoses, and/or behavioral issues secondary to other age related conditions. Our team has been recognized for ensuring that adults age 65 and over receive quality care, and our dedicated social workers and staff work with the family and multidisciplinary team to create a safe, healthy, discharge plan for the patient. We accept voluntary and involuntary admissions. Average length of stay, depending on severity of illness, is 7 to 14 days.
