ABOUT DUKE REGIONAL HOSPITAL - PSYCHIATRY
Located in Durham, N.C., Duke Regional Hospital's inpatient psychiatry department offers adults a full spectrum of psychiatric care, including treatment for substance misuse and co-occurring disorders. Treatment is also available for ADHD, depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and many other conditions.

Duke Regional Hospital is part of Duke Health, a network of hospitals, physicians, medical research facilities, and other medical facilities affiliated with Duke University.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment plans are individualized based on the specific needs of each client which are identified after an initial assessment of the client. Hospital staff works with both the client and their family to develop the plan.
According to the hospitals website, treatment involves a full range of therapy options, from individual and group therapy to medication management. Duke Regional Hospital offers cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), brain stimulation and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and dialectical behavior therapies (DBT).
Once the clients are stabilized, clinicians may refer the individual to the hospital’s outpatient clinic, which provides short-term psychotherapy and ongoing medication management.
Duke's multidisciplinary team includes a psychiatrist, social worker, recreational therapist, registered nurse, and nurse aide. Duke Regional Hospital is one of 63 (13.3 percent) treatment facilities in North Carolina certified by The Joint Commission.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The hospital’s inpatient psychiatry department has 23 beds, which a 2017 SAMHSA survey indicates is the average number of beds at hospital inpatient facilities in North Carolina.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Though Rehabs.com has yet to receive any feedback from alumni, reviews on third-party sites were mixed. Most reviews, however, were not specific to the hospital's psychiatry department. On Google, 19 reviewers (all but one of whom was an alum) contributed to an average rating of 2.5 out of five stars.
Positive reviews tended to focus on the quality of care and the staff. Negative reviews, in contrast, often focused on poor care and long wait times. Stanley wrote in a representative review that, "it is a 4 to 8 hour wait. Come on! Duke you can do better than that. People are sick and want to be seen by a Doctor." Reviews were slightly more positive on Yelp, where the hospital received an average rating of 3.3 stars based on 17 reviews.
