Crisis Stabilization for Adults: Why Choose Us?

Treating a mental health disorder or addiction isn’t something you have to do alone. Since 2001, Spring Mountain has been helping people across Las Vegas and southern Nevada achieve their recovery goals. Our evidence-based treatments and compassionate approach lay the foundation for lasting recovery. We offer care for adults (ages 18 and up) as well as children and adolescents (ages 5 to 17).

Our adult inpatient treatment program offers:

  • Board-certified psychiatrists: Patients in our inpatient program meet daily with a board-certified psychiatrist. A physician-led staff of registered nurses, licensed therapists and other healthcare providers work together to put your needs first.
  • Patient advocate: Each patient works with our dedicated advocate, who listens to their concerns and helps them understand the treatment process. Our advocate liaises with the medical staff on the patient’s behalf and provides ongoing support and guidance.
  • National recognition: Both of our treatment locations, Spring Mountain Treatment Center and Spring Mountain Sahara, maintain accreditation by The Joint Commission®. This organization oversees and maintains high-quality care among behavioral health providers in the U.S.

What to Expect From Inpatient Psychiatric Care

The prospect of hospitalization for a mental health or substance use problem can be overwhelming. At Spring Mountain, we help you understand what to expect and address your questions or concerns.

During treatment, you receive:

  • Individualized assessments: Each patient undergoes psychiatric and medical evaluations from a nurse or master’s-level clinician. We also do screenings to identify trauma, drug use or other factors that may affect your recovery. Our staff learns about your lifestyle, stressors and interests so that we can tailor treatment to your needs.
  • Medication therapy and management: You may receive medication such as antipsychotics, antidepressants or mood stabilizers. People in detox take medication to ease cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Our staff adjusts medications as needed and helps you make a medication management plan before you leave the hospital.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT is a form of talk therapy, or psychotherapy. It focuses on regulating emotions and changing negative thoughts and behaviors that contribute to mental health disorders or addiction. Patients participate in group therapy sessions each day to learn coping skills and set recovery goals.
  • Comprehensive discharge planning: After inpatient hospitalization, you may transition to our intensive outpatient program (IOP). We coordinate all necessary referrals for onward care and schedule your first appointment with a therapist. Caseworkers connect you to resources for housing, transportation, food and employment as needed.

Get the Right Care, Right Now — It’s Your Right

You are legally entitled to emergency care in a psychiatric crisis, regardless of your ability to pay. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) means you can go to any emergency department or psychiatric hospital for stabilization and treatment without providing payment or insurance information.*
