Behavioral Health

Illness, stress, anxiety and substance abuse can all contribute to behavioral health issues. St. Bernard’s team of psychiatrists have the expertise to diagnose a wide range of mental health issues in adults and put them on the road to recovery. For more information on our adult mental health unit, call (773) 962-4075.

Inpatient Medical Detox

St. Bernard’s inpatient medical detox program is a key part of our behavioral health services. The program treats adults (over 21 years of age) suffering from addiction to heroin or alcohol by managing their withdrawal, educating them about addiction and recovery, and connecting them with long-term addiction treatment. Our services are available 24/7 with staff on duty day and night to care for patients.

With the belief that substance abuse can be successfully treated, patients receive assistance with multiple issues related to their addiction and overall wellbeing. Our unit is designed to promote immediate access to staff 24/7 and to promote patient comfort during the withdrawal process. Patients needing care for additional medical conditions (such as diabetes) receive coordinated, high quality medical care.

Our staff is available day and night to provide patients and referring professionals with:

  • Immediate screening
  • Direct admission
  • Management of additional medical conditions and illnesses
  • Patient education on addictive and the recovery process
  • Direct linkage to residential or outpatient aftercare substance abuse services
  • Specialized addictions treatment team
  • Medically managed withdrawal
  • Daily group counseling sessions

Comprehensive discharge planning is a hallmark of St. Bernard’s Medical Detox program. We provide coordinated transition to residential or outpatient services that enable patients to progress in their recovery.
