Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitalization


Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is available for individuals requiring psychiatric stabilization for behavior or symptoms assessed as dangerous to self, to others, or gravely disabled and require 24-hour care in a secure and therapeutic setting.  Length of inpatient care is determined by continued need for such services. Discharge planning from inpatient care includes linkage and/or coordination with an outpatient provider.

To Qualify

​Adults 18 years and older assessed as dangerous to him/herself, to others, or unable to make a plan for food, clothing, and shelter in the community (grave disability). Individuals are primarily assessed and referred from hospital emergency rooms.


​Cost is based on program specifications, MediCal coverage or other public insurance/resources, and the individual’s ability to pay.  The Mental Health Treatment Center Intake Team will assist in determining the individual’s share of cost as applicable.
