Adult Behavioral Health

Outpatient Behavioral Health Treatment for Adults
Penn Highlands DuBois Behavioral Health Center, located on the PH DuBois East Campus along Maple Avenue, provides patients 18 and over with a variety of outpatient counseling, therapies and assessments for mild to severe behavioral health conditions. We offer psychiatric evaluation, medication management, psychological assessment and individual and family psychotherapy. Our team at Penn Highlands Healthcare consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, physician assistants, licensed clinical social workers and licensed professional counselors at locations throughout the region.

If admitted, a patient receives a thorough physical examination to determine general health status and to ascertain whether underlying physical conditions or medications may be contributing to the patient’s behavioral problems.

Inpatient Behavioral Health Treatment for Adults
Penn Highlands Healthcare provides inpatient behavioral health services for adults. Our team in the unit, located on the PH DuBois East Campus, offers personalized care to patients exhibiting behavioral health problems that impair their ability to function on a daily basis. The unit operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and features 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.
