When you are in crisis from severe, persistent episodes related to a mental health condition or co-occurring concern, you need immediate intervention.
Tower Behavioral Health provides acute crisis stabilization for adults of all genders age 18 and older through our inpatient programming. We help you regain control and start to function at a higher level so that you can begin working toward long-term recovery.
Benefits of Inpatient Programming
Being in a state of crisis can force you to put your life on hold while you struggle to manage the physical feelings, emotions, and behaviors related to the mental health concern you are facing. The inpatient program at Tower Behavioral Health can help you develop a sense of safety and personal autonomy over your current situation.
When you seek inpatient care at Tower Behavioral Health in Reading, Pennsylvania, you benefit from:
- Structured environment – Our inpatient program features a highly structured schedule so that you can receive round-the-clock support during your stay with us.
- Personalized care – We collaborate with you to identify your strengths and challenges so that we can determine which therapies and interventions will benefit you most. When appropriate, we will also involve your family and other community supports in the planning process.
- Leisure activities – You’ll have opportunities to enjoy time in our outdoor courtyard spaces, socialize at community meetings, and participate in physical activities during designated gym times.
Some people step up to our inpatient program from a lower level of care, while others enter directly at the inpatient level. Our expert staff will help you determine whether inpatient care at Tower Behavioral Health is the right fit for your current needs.
The Care Experience
Every person who comes to us in crisis has a different experience with the condition they’re struggling with. Various factors influence how they may be affected, including their medical history, life experiences, and socioeconomic background.
At Tower Behavioral Health, the care experience begins with a detailed screening process that helps us understand the nature and severity of your symptoms. You’ll receive inpatient care with us for about nine days, though your actual length of stay will depend on your specific needs and recovery goals.
Common elements of care may include:
- Individual and group therapy
- Art and music therapy
- Dance/movement therapy
- Medication management
- Family meetings
- Leisure time
You may also engage in various treatment modalities during your time in our inpatient program, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).
The decision to seek inpatient care can be the start of a healthier, more satisfying life. But we recognize that the work you do during your stay with us is just a part of your wellness journey.
When you choose Tower Behavioral Health, you set the groundwork for lifelong recovery, which includes aftercare planning that begins as soon as you start inpatient care with us.
Our goal is to ensure that you can safely return to your home, community, or other appropriate setting with the resources and supports you need to succeed. We will work with you to identify triggers and stressors that may cause the condition you’re struggling with to recur, along with a safety plan for how to respond.
If necessary, we will also set up any appropriate follow-up care or direct you to other community resources so that you can continue the progress you made with us.
