Southcoast Behavioral Health Hospital View Specialties

Located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Southcoast Behavioral Health is a 144-bed acute inpatient treatment center that helps adolescents, adults, and seniors who are struggling with behavioral health concerns. We attempt to meet patients where they are on their journeys toward better health by providing safe and compassionate care in a supportive setting. Our campus offers a tranquil atmosphere where patients can enjoy the outdoor courtyards or participate in therapeutic groups and social activities in one of our indoor spaces.
At our premier treatment center, we help patients who have acute needs related to a variety of mental health concerns. We also offer a dual diagnosis unit for individuals who are living with a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. For those who have a primary diagnosis of a mental health concern, conditions we treat include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), self-harm, psychosis, adjustment disorders, and suicidal ideation. To ensure that we are providing individualized, age-appropriate care, we offer four unique units: an adolescent unit (ages 13-17), an adult unit (age 18 and older), a senior unit (age 55 and older), and a dual diagnosis unit for adults that also offers detoxification services. Average length of stay in our inpatient program is five to seven days, though each patient’s actual length of stay may vary depending on their individual progress and level of need.
Prior to admission, we walk each prospective patient through a detailed assessment that helps us understand their needs, strengths, and treatment goals. This helps our team develop an individualized care plan to allow each patient to get the most from their time in our inpatient treatment program. Once you begin treatment, you will receive daily medication management services and participate in a variety of therapies that can meet your unique needs. Group therapy is the primary method of treatment. Our clinicians, activity therapists, registered nurses, and behavioral health associates lead these therapeutic process and educational groups that feature an open process format and cover various topics. All groups are designed to help patients understand their symptoms, develop successful coping strategies, and get the most out of their time with us. As part of our focus on lasting recovery, each patient receives a detailed discharge plan at the end of their time at our leading treatment center. This plan can include recommendations for step-down services, referrals to additional support services, and community resources that promote continued healing.
