It is the goal of Adult Services to provide a safe and healing environment in which all people are treated with dignity and respect. It is our purpose to assist patients to reach their potential, through individualized treatment with an aim toward their return to the community. A high value is placed on meeting the needs of each patient in a humanistic, caring, and professional way.
Adult Services is comprised of seven adult treatment units, respectively Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, Legacy, LHU, and ARTC. The units are located in the Lucy Beth Rampton Building. Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, and Legacy each provide care for a total of 30 men and women and utilize several areas designed for patient comfort and interests. These areas include large outdoor courtyards, cooking areas, craft rooms, occupational therapy areas, and day rooms complete with televisions, and stereos. The Lucy Beth Rampton Building - Rampton I was opened in 1994 and Rampton II was opened in 2002. Both areas were designed to provide a bright and open atmosphere. LHU - Life Habilitation Unit - is a 46 bed adult psychiatric unit for men and women. The goal of the unit is to clinically stabilize the patient and teach the necessary life skills to maintain a quality of life free from psychiatric hospitalization.
The philosophy of LHU is that people will live up or down to expectations put on them. This simple philosophy is reflected in the patient's treatment plan, the unit's programming, and discharge planning. Patients are given clear expectations upon admission. When patients meet these expectations, they are given a pass that allows them to come and go from the unit on their own. The hope is that as responsibility for the patients' well being is restored back to the patient, they will set positive expectations for themselves.
ARTC - Acute Rehabilitation Treatment Center - is a 5 bed adult psychiatric unit for men and women who are acutely ill and require a short period of inpatient hospitalization to stabilize and then return to the community. The ARTC Unit provides acute beds for the rural community mental health centers who do not have inpatient psychiatric beds in their communities.
