The adult inpatient acute program at Cedar Springs Hospital is for 18-year-olds and older with psychiatric or substance abuse issues so severe they require intensive 24-hour care. The program provides an accepting, nonjudgmental treatment approach in a specialized environment.
The program is based on the concept that people have an inherent capacity to learn and grow and is designed to meet the unique needs of each person and family. Our staff members are sensitive to each patient’s stage of life and can help them learn to address needs in an acceptable way.
