Immediate help in a crisis
If you’re facing an emotional crisis, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital1 offers immediate help, providing short-term psychiatric care for adults and teens (13 years of age and older) in a hospital setting. Short-term inpatient care is provided in three secure hospital psychiatric units to help people who pose a risk to themselves or others, and those who are unable to care for themselves.
Northwestern Medicine offers personalized care from psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and licensed therapists on staff at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH). These specialists work closely together to address acute problems and develop goals that will lead to a successful recovery plan. When you are admitted to the Inpatient Psychiatric Units at CDH, you may need medication to stabilize symptoms associated with a psychiatric episode or illness. Following stabilization, your care team2 at CDH will develop treatment recommendations that may include:
- Outpatient partial hospitalization
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Patient education
- Medication monitoring and supervision
- Follow-up services in the community
