The Center for Behavioral Health, completed in 1997, offers state-of-the-art treatment in a therapeutic environment. Located in the Pomeroy Pavilion at Waterbury Hospital, the Center for Behavioral Health features specialized units for the treatment of adolescents, adults and older individuals.
Our approach to the treatment of individuals with acute and long-term psychiatric and behavioral disorders emphasizes an individualized and multidisciplinary model. Our treatment team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, activity therapists and other mental health professionals. Working collaboratively with clients, families and providers, the treatment team provides a responsive, consistent and supportive therapeutic environment that is necessary for rapid assessment, stabilization, treatment and after-care planning.
The Center for Behavioral Health at Waterbury Hospital is part of a continuum which includes crisis intervention, partial hospitalization, intensive inpatient and outpatient services. This continuum provides flexible treatment options designed to meet the needs of each client and his or her family. The availability of multiple levels of care allows us to develop individualized programs that maximize therapeutic results while limiting cost and maximizing convenience.
