FAQs

Adults

Is it necessary to have a doctor's referral for an assessment?

No. Anyone can call our Intake office 24/7 to schedule an assessment. We receive referrals from former patients, parents and loved ones, emergency rooms, physicians, schools, mental health professionals and many others.

What services do you offer?

Our adult programs include services that meet the needs of the patient at whatever level of care they need. We offer inpatient treatment for individuals age 18 and older for those with psychiatric disorders, substance abuse problems or both. These individuals are in immediate need of a safe and secure environment in which to recover from the crisis that precipitated their admission. We also offer a period of rehab for those who have been medically stabilized or detoxed. Our outpatient services include two programs: partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP). Both of these programs provide therapy during the daytime hours while allowing patients to return home in the evenings. And finally, we proudly offer our military services program that specializes in the care and treatment of those who are currently serving, or have served in the armed forces. For more information on any of these programs please call our Intake and Admissions office at (912) 354-3911 or (844) 657-2638.

How long will someone have to stay if they are admitted?

A psychiatric evaluation is completed at admission and the treatment team will immediately begin addressing the circumstances and problems that brought the patient to us. Each inpatient hospitalization stay varies in length depending on the clinical and medical needs of the patient.

What should a patient bring if he or she is hospitalized?

  • Insurance cards and ID cards
  • Name, address and phone number of current and previous therapists and doctors
  • All prescribed and over-the-counter medications you are currently taking
  • Medical information regarding any allergies you have to medications, food or other source
  • Unopened cigarettes (no chewing tobacco)
  • Comfortable clothing for 3-6 days, packed in a small/medium-sized bag
  • Jeans, sweat pants, slacks, t-shirts, pajamas, robes
  • Light jacket or sweatshirt as unit temperatures tend to be cooler
  • Bras and other undergarments must be worn appropriately. Clothing should not expose midriffs or be inappropriately tight.
  • Shoes that are slip-on or that have Velcro closure (no shoelaces or belts are permitted.)
  • Appropriate reading material

Patients do not need to bring money for items at CBH, and are encouraged to leave all money and valuables at home or with a family/loved one prior to their admission. CBH patients receive meals and snacks as part of their hospital stay.

Will they see a doctor during the assessment?

No, only if they are admitted. The assessment data is staff with the on-call MD and they make the decision regarding admission. PTs who do not meet admission criteria are referred to an OP provider.

Can someone receive a prescription for medications during the assessment if they are not admitted?

No. We are an IP facility and our medical staff only dispense medications or issue prescriptions for patients.

Do you have visiting hours?

Yes. Families are encouraged to visit their loved ones during their treatment, and we have visiting hours twice a day at our inpatient facilities. For inquiries about visitation hours, please call (912) 354-3911.

How much does treatment cost?

We accept a variety of insurance plans to include Medicare, Tricare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, and others.

Children & Adolescents

Does my child need a doctor's referral for an assessment?

No. Anyone can call our Intake office 24/7 to schedule an assessment. We receive referrals from parents and loved ones, former patients, emergency rooms, physicians, schools, mental health professionals and many others.

What services do you offer?

Our inpatient program has two levels of care for children and adolescents. Our Acute care program is for those children ages 4 – 17 who are at risk of harming themselves or someone else. Those kids that appear to be in an emotional or psychiatric crisis and need immediate attention and a safe and secure setting in which to recover are those that are appropriate for this program.

Our Residential program is a long-term treatment program created for those youth ages 7 – 17 who have a history of psychiatric or behavioral problems and for whom other treatment programs have not been successful in the past. These kids need ongoing therapeutic intervention in a secure environment to help them learn new coping techniques in order to transition back into the community.

How long will my child stay if he or she is admitted?

Each patient’s length of stay is variable. A treatment plan is created by a team of mental health professionals to include our psychiatrist and licensed therapists, and each child plays an active role in his or her treatment plan. Parents may discuss their child’s progress with the therapist provided they are on the release of information as required by HIPAA.

What should my child bring if he or she is hospitalized?

  • Insurance cards and ID cards
  • Name, address and phone number of current and previous therapists and doctors
