This service is one component in the continuum of care which provides psychiatric treatment for a broad range of acute psychiatric problems.
The inpatient program provides comprehensive interdisciplinary assessment, individualized care and treatment to achieve maximum rehabilitation and optimal function. When patients are ready for the next phase of care, the care team ensures appropriate supports are in place to ensure successful reintegration back to the community.
Patients are admitted on a voluntary basis or involuntarily under the Mental Health Act.
Villa Caritas is not a permanent residence for patients.
