Inpatient Adult Unit

adult bevioral

This program is for adults suffering from behavioral health problems. The Adult Unit operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is located within the East Campus of Penn Highlands DuBois. The unit contains 27 private and semi-private bedrooms and living, dining and recreational areas.

Intensive psychotherapies, nursing and educational services aim to re-establish emotional and cognitive stability, enhance self-confidence, instill and reinforce coping capabilities, and initiate a plan of post-hospital care to complete and sustain recovery. Patients are seen daily by a psychiatrist as well as by another member of the care team.

Common problems treated include:

  • Affective disorders (depression, bi-polar)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Personality disorders
  • Organic brain syndromes


Direct referrals to the Adult Unit can be made by community mental health agencies and physicians. Comprehensive face-to-face assessments are provided by trained mental health staff via the Penn Highlands DuBois' Emergency Department for inpatient placement or outpatient services referral.
