ABOUT UPMC MCKEESPORT
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in an integrated health care provider that operates 21 hospitals and specialized facilities throughout Pennsylvania. UPMC McKeesport, located 12-miles southeast of Pittsburgh, provides inpatient behavioral health services for adults and seniors struggling with chemical dependency, psychiatric disorders, and co-occurring issues.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
UPMC McKeesport provides triage and intervention services to begin stabilization. Upon admission, patients participate in an initial psychiatric and/or substance abuse assessment to help clinicians determine the severity of each situation. The facility offers psychopharmacological interventions (medication management) to assist in the stabilization process and alleviate symptoms of mental health disorders.
Along with medication management, patients participate in a structured schedule of individual therapy sessions, process groups, as well as psychoeducational classes. Family involvement is also encouraged, and UPMC McKeesport facilitates family therapy sessions.
As a hospital-based program, the goal of treatment is to rapidly stabilize the patient and refer them to an appropriate program. Although UPMC McKeesport does not provide on-site outpatient programs, the facility partners with Mon Yough Community Services Inc., an organization that offers a range of supportive and rehabilitation services throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.
UPMC McKeesport employs an experienced, multidisciplinary staff of physicians, registered nurses, social workers, and mental health specialists.
