Results-based treatment

Patients who complete our Adolescent Transitional Living Program tell us their treatment was vital to their recovery. In a survey of patients who completed this program the majority reported significantly less anxiety and were significantly better able to regulate their emotions compared to when they entered the program.

In a survey of patients treated at our Chronic Pain Recovery Center, the majority reported a reduction in pain, opioid use, and symptoms of depression and anxiety.

We have measured outcomes that demonstrate our patients get better. Those who complete our transitional living programs tell us their treatment was a vital part of their recovery.

80% of patients treated in our Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders residential program remained alcohol and drug free within a year of discharge. See the result.

Levels of Care

As a full service psychiatric hospital we are uniquely positioned to treat addiction and psychiatric disorders. Patients are able to transition seamlessly from inpatient treatment to residential programs to outpatient care depending on their level of need.

Inpatient Treatment
Our inpatient programs for adolescents and adults provide hospitalization for the phase of mental illness that requires medical intervention for symptom reduction and stabilization. We treat patients whose conditions range from anxiety disorders to schizoaffective disorder.

Transitional Living
We offer several residential treatment programs where patients live on campus for an extended stay to be treated for persistent psychotic disorders, addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders or chronic pain.

Outpatient Care
For those patients able to live at home, we offer a number of outpatient programs for conditions including addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders and personality disorders.

Treatment modalities

We offer a comprehensive range of evidence-based treatments, including:

Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation
Based on information gathered from the patient, their family and their community clinicians, we develop a preliminary diagnosis and treatment plan.
Medical Detoxification
Medically supervised treatment designed to safely eliminate intoxicating or addictive substances from the body.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Designed to provide patients with the skills necessary to regulate emotions, control self-destructive behaviors and improve interpersonal relations.
Electroconvulsive Therapy
A medical treatment that involves applying a brief electric current to the brain, used for specific disorders with evidence-based indications for this treatment.
Grand Rounds

Silver Hill Hospital sponsors several Grand Rounds throughout the year as part of our educational outreach to the medical community.

We are accredited by the Connecticut State Medical Society to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. Many of our programs are also approved by the National Association of Social Workers, Connecticut Chapter for continuing education credit hours.
