Welcome to Tower Behavioral Health

About Tower Behavioral Health in Reading, Pennsylvania

Tower Behavioral Health is an advanced, innovative facility that will be opening in Reading, Pennsylvania in 2020. Our state-of-the-art hospital is poised to provide comprehensive treatment to individuals age 18 and over who are experiencing mental health concerns and co-occurring addiction.

At Tower Behavioral Health, our evidence-based treatment solutions will be tailored to improve the well-being of those we care for. Our inpatient treatment center will offer programs to address general psychiatric diagnoses and mood disorders, through which we are able to provide targeted treatment to address the specific needs of each individual. We are proud to offer a safe and secure environment where those receiving treatment can prioritize their health and begin on their unique road to recovery.

Who We Serve

Tower Behavioral Health in Reading, Pennsylvania, will serve adults age 18 and older

Tower Behavioral Health will provide clinically excellent care for adults age 18 and older who are living with primary mental health concerns along with addiction. While we will offer inpatient care that is specific to adults who have mood disorders, we will also provide services to address other mental health concerns. Additionally, we plan to expand our services to include treatment of children and adolescents living with mental and behavioral health concerns.

Our individualized treatment plans will be based on an in-depth evaluation of the strengths, resiliency factors, and triggers of each patient we serve. Each care plan will focus on developing patient strengths and values while addressing challenges identified by family and social supports. We believe that these factors should be assessed for their potential to influence a patient’s crisis.

What We Treat

Comprehensive care for adults who are struggling with mental health concerns and co-occurring addiction in Reading, Pennsylvania

Adults age 18 and older will soon be able to receive comprehensive treatment for mental health concerns such as bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, self-harm, psychotic disorders, suicidal ideation, posttraumatic stress disorder, and personality disorders. Patients who are experiencing an acute crisis related to these concerns will receive treatment on our general psychiatric unit, while patients who are struggling with mood disorders will enter treatment on our mood disorders unit.

All individuals who will receive care at our treatment facility in Reading, Pennsylvania, must have a primary mental health diagnosis. However, we will also provide treatment for individuals who are struggling with co-occurring addiction. We will be able to provide care that addresses a range of diagnoses and concerns, as many individuals in crisis may be impacted by various struggles.

Programming We Provide

Therapies and treatment services for adults who are facing mental health concerns and co-occurring addiction in Reading, Pennsylvania

At Tower Behavioral Health, we will provide patients with a broad range of clinical interventions based on their unique needs. The goal of each treatment will be to assist patients in acquiring the skills to negotiate their discharge environment, build stronger connections, and develop resiliency.

Our interdisciplinary treatment team is skilled in providing modalities such as psychoeducational sessions, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral activation, motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), wellness recovery action plan (WRAP) development, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness training. We will also offer verbal therapies, art therapy, music therapy, and movement therapy to engage patients in unique experiences to assist in their recovery process. These interventions will complement individual, group, and family counseling sessions that will serve as the foundation of our recovery process.

After completing a thorough evaluation, medication review, medical history, and laboratory tests, our team will determine if patients would benefit from pharmacotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy treatments as needed. Each of these tools will guide our team in making the appropriate recommendations to assist you or your loved one in recovery.

Our personalized approach will support our patients by addressing the root of their mental health concerns and addiction challenges. The compassionate staff at our facility will advocate for you or your loved one on the journey toward long-term recovery.
