Center for behavioral health in Florida's Treasure Coast

At Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, we know that mental health conditions are just as important as physical ones. That's why we provide comprehensive behavioral health services, including inpatient and outpatient treatment options, to ensure you receive the care you need.

Our adult inpatient unit offers comprehensive short-term psychiatric services for mental health conditions that require hospitalization. Our adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) is also available if treatment beyond traditional outpatient services is best for your care.

Causes of mental illness

If you suspect a mental health issue with yourself or someone you know, we’re ready to provide the care you need. Seek a professional consultation right away.

Factors that contribute to behavioral health issues include:

  • A family history of mental illness
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Brain injury or toxic exposure
  • Stress
  • Alcohol or drug use

Symptoms of behavioral health issues

Call our Patient Access Team at (772) 466-1500 if you or a loved one are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Prolonged confusion
  • Consistent feelings of sadness
  • Extreme changes in eating habits, sleep patterns or energy levels
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Withdrawal from family, friends or hobbies
  • Hallucinations or loss of reality
  • Outbursts of anger or violence

Our behavioral health center's services

We can treat some behavioral health issues using talk therapy. More severe conditions, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, may require hospitalization. Other treatment options for behavioral health conditions include:

  • Crisis stabilization
  • Daily sessions with your psychiatrist
  • Individual and group psychotherapy
  • Education
  • Family sessions
  • Medication management

We’ll tailor treatment to your individual needs with a focus on helping restore your mental health and well-being. We provide comfortable, physician-supervised detoxification for people who need treatment for substance use disorders. Specialized dual diagnosis (two separate illnesses that each require their own treatment plans) groups are also available to help people take the first steps toward recovery.

Adolescent behavioral health program

Our adolescent program features an environment where young people from 13–17 years old can receive inpatient care for behavioral health issues. Our unit, located in the Lawnwood Pavilion, features 12 beds in private and semi-private rooms. Patients have access to amenities like indoor and outdoor therapeutic groups, activity areas, a pool and a gymnasium.

Inpatient mental health care

Our free-standing, 24-bed adult inpatient unit provides a safe, supportive, therapeutic environment where we can assess your psychiatric needs. The voluntary inpatient program spans four to six weeks and gives patients access to:

  • Group, individual and family therapy sessions
  • Three group meetings (meals are provided) every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday
  • Groups facilitated by licensed clinicians and mental health professionals
  • Medication management

Outpatient mental health care

We recommend our adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) for people who need a more intensive level of care than traditional outpatient treatment. Our IOP offers the support needed to:

  • Make important changes
  • Take back your life
  • Be your best self

We meet Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Each treatment day, patients attend three hours of group psychotherapy. Individual and family sessions are also available.

For more information about the IOP or to schedule an intake evaluation, call our behavioral health center at (772) 467-3572.

We use a wide range of therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and cognitive processing therapy, to address behavioral health conditions. IOP can help stabilize symptoms, improve functioning and reduce your risk of hospitalization. We also provide ongoing support to help people transition from inpatient to outpatient care.
