Behavioral Health Hospital for Adults, Adolescents and Children: Why Choose Us?

Our nationally accredited mental and behavioral health hospital in Orlando offers:

  • No-cost assessments: Our staff is here 24/7 to provide no-cost assessments and insurance verification, with or without an appointment. We offer around-the-clock admissions, giving patients quick access to care in a crisis. Learn more about admissions.
  • Daily psychiatrist visits: You’ll find empathy and support from our highly skilled staff. Each patient meets daily with a board-certified psychiatrist and licensed therapist who evaluate your progress and update your treatment plan as needed.
  • Trauma-informed therapy: Our staff is trained to support, respect and honor people who have experienced trauma such as abuse or combat. We focus on preventing re-traumatization and are sensitive to trauma-related behaviors and symptoms.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT): We are one of only a few ECT treatment centers in Orlando. ECT is highly effective for many people with treatment-resistant depression and some other mental health disorders. Learn more about ECT.
  • Several levels of care: After inpatient treatment, you can “step down” to our partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs while remaining in a familiar environment. Learn more about outpatient treatment.
  • Comprehensive discharge planning: Our staff helps you plan for success after inpatient treatment by coordinating your onward care. We can refer you to residential programs, outpatient therapists, social services and other resources as necessary.

Our Inpatient Treatment Programs

Our large, 147-bed facility means we have the space and staff to group patients by age, condition severity and treatment needs. With eight dedicated inpatient units, we can provide a personalized level of care for people with mental health and co-occurring disorders.

General Adult Inpatient Treatment

We offer inpatient mental health treatment for working professionals, college students, first responders and other people in high-stress environments. Our staff provides a calm, discreet environment as you recover. Small-group therapy sessions help you manage depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health challenges. Learn more about our general adult inpatient treatment program.

Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit

For people with more severe psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder, psychosis and schizoaffective disorder, we offer an intensive inpatient unit. Our staff provides stabilization, suicide prevention and 24/7 medically monitored care for both voluntarily and involuntarily admitted patients. Learn more about our psychiatric intensive care unit.

Dual Diagnosis: Inpatient Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment

Our dedicated dual diagnosis unit addresses the unique needs of people with a mental health disorder and co-occurring substance use issues, such as an opioid, benzodiazepine or alcohol addiction. The program focuses on detox, 12-step programs (Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous) and medication-assisted treatment (naltrexone and buprenorphine) to prevent relapse. Learn more about our dual diagnosis inpatient treatment program.

Mature Adult Inpatient Treatment

Our inpatient treatment program for older adults addresses age-related challenges such as depression, grief, isolation and reduced mobility. Daily visits with a board-certified geriatric psychiatrist and internal medicine physician help us meet each patient’s needs. We work with patients and families to plan the next phase of care, such as home health services or a skilled nursing or assisted living facility. Learn more about our mature adult inpatient treatment program.

Child and Adolescent Inpatient Treatment

Central Florida Behavioral Hospital offers inpatient programs for children (ages 5 to 12) and adolescents (ages 13 to 17). We are a primary psychiatric referral source for major local children’s hospitals. And we are one of only a few facilities in Central Florida to offer inpatient care for children as young as 5. Board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists oversee treatment for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, suicidal ideation and substance use.
