Behavioral Health Services
In a nurturing environment, Mission Hospital Laguna Beach offers Behavioral Health Services customized to meet the individual health needs of patients requiring acute inpatient care as well as a day treatment program. Each is based on a "therapeutic community" philosophy, where patients actively engage in treatment under the guidance of doctors, therapists and nurses. Components of both inpatient and outpatient programs offer comprehensive medical, psychological and psychiatric evaluation; individualized treatment planning toward goals and objectives; group, individual and/or family therapy; activity groups; and aftercare planning.
Dual Diagnosis Programs that address mental health as well as chemical dependency are also offered in an acute inpatient care setting or day treatment programs.
Additionally, the Behavioral Health Services Department offers an outpatient Eating Disorder Program. All out-patient programs are offered at full and half day schedules.
