Behavioral Health & Addiction Medicine
St. Vincent Charity Medical Center offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient services to those in need of behavioral health treatment, whether for psychiatric or alcohol and drug dependency issues.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center’s dedicated team delivers compassionate care that focuses on the needs of the whole patient — physical, emotional and social, as well as the needs of their families.
Our skilled team consists of physicians, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, pastoral/spiritual care specialists, chemical dependency educators, social workers and specialty physicians.
Caregivers working in Behavioral Health are specially trained in the field to manage psychiatric illness and always treat each patient with respect and understanding. Unique to the behavioral health department is our 24/7 emergency department specifically for psychiatric emergencies—the only facility of its kind in Northeast Ohio.
At St. Vincent Charity, we understand the family’s role in successful patient care, our team educates family members about the nature of the illness and coping strategies, as well as recommending additional resources and services.
