At Signature Psychiatric Hospital in North Kansas City, Missouri, we are committed to supporting our patients as they heal from the addictions and mental health concerns they have been suffering from. We offer a full continuum of care that, for many patients, begins with our inpatient program.
Adult Inpatient Program Overview
Signature Psychiatric Hospital offers a premier inpatient program for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Our inpatient programming includes:
- An inpatient psychiatric program for adults who have mental health concerns
- An inpatient detoxification program for adults who have substance use disorders and need support during the detox process before they transition to a lower level of care
Inpatient care is typically a short-term experience that can help you address crisis needs, access immediate support from qualified professionals, and receive a plan for your continuing care.
When you seek treatment at our hospital, our compassionate staff will work with you to understand your unique needs and strengths and learn about your health history so that we can customize a care plan to suit you.
At our leading behavioral health hospital, we provide care for a wide range of disorders, including:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Borderline personality disorder
- Certain substance use disorders
We can also provide acute care for adults who are suffering from suicidal ideation or psychosis. Additionally, at both of our inpatient locations, we can support people who have co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illnesses.
To find out if Signature’s inpatient program may be right for you, you can call to schedule an assessment or visit in person during daily walk-in hours from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. at our North Kansas City location.
Inpatient Psychiatric Program
In our inpatient psychiatric program, you can receive compassionate care from our multidisciplinary staff to help you stabilize and manage your immediate behavioral health needs. You may also work to identify available support systems and build coping skills that can help you as you move forward in your healing journey.
Patients typically remain in our inpatient program for seven to 10 days depending on their unique needs and can receive access to individual, family, and group therapies and other personalized services as needed.
Our Changing Pointe program for patients who have substance use disorders features a full continuum of care, which typically begins at the inpatient detox level. In our inpatient detoxification program, we support adults who are struggling with the use of alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids.
When patients enter our medical detox program, they can navigate the withdrawal process in a safe, supportive environment while participating in therapeutic programming and receiving supervision and care from our qualified medical staff.
The usual length of stay in our inpatient detox program is seven to 10 days; however, your individual needs will determine your precise time in detox. After detox ends, patients typically transition to the residential component of our Changing Pointe program or to our outpatient programming if appropriate.
Therapies & Services
At Signature Psychiatric Hospital, we understand that patients often have a range of physical and behavioral needs when they seek care with us. Our inpatient psychiatric and inpatient detox programs offer multiple services and therapies to support patients’ needs, including:
- Basic medical care provided by our nursing staff
- Medication management services, which can include daily meetings with a psychiatrist
- Individual, family, and group therapies
In our adult inpatient program, one of our primary modalities is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). We also incorporate the 12-Step model of recovery for patients who are struggling with substance use disorders.
Patients can receive one-on-one support from a social worker during individual therapy sessions. And in group therapy, they can benefit from valuable peer support and education as they explore topics such as anger management, trauma, and family challenges. At Signature, we offer inpatient group therapy programming daily.
Your time in inpatient care may also include family meetings, which are designed to provide education and facilitate discussion among patients and their families.
Signature Psychiatric Hospital provides premier inpatient psychiatric and detox services at both its main North Kansas City location and its inpatient facility at Liberty Hospital in Liberty, Missouri.
Starting on the day of your admission to our inpatient program, our expert staff will work with you to create a personalized plan for your continuing care. Our hospital, which offers behavioral healthcare across four Kansas City-area locations, is ready to support you with step-down programs as well as referrals to other services that may be appropriate.
Throughout your time at Signature, we will encourage you to participate actively in the care process as well as continue working toward long-term healing after your time at our hospital ends. Our dedicated staff aims to provide transformative healing experiences that can continue to inspire patients long after they leave Signature.
