Psychiatric Services

Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Psychiatric Services encompasses both inpatient and outpatient treatment of mental health conditions.

The Psychiatric Services Inpatient Unit (PSIU) provides short-term, acute psychiatric care to adults experiencing a significant mental health crisis related to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, depression or other illness.

Our locked, 16-bed unit is staffed by experienced psychiatric caregivers dedicated to stabilizing the patient, and starting needed treatments, in an atmosphere that is quiet and comfortable.

Therapy is team based, meaning that care is provided by health professionals from several disciplines and involves the patient and family members. The team works together to create a treatment plan best able to meet the patient’s specific needs.

Treatment Plans May Include:

  • Daily Psychiatric Counseling
  • Group Therapy in a Structured Setting
  • Medication Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Support Group Meetings
  • Relapse Prevention

The unit also provides substance abuse and detoxification services, including the specialized Babies and Mother’s Beginning In-Sync (BAMBI) program for pregnant women with substance abuse issues. Physicians or individuals interested in learning about the BAMBI program should call 802.786.1479.

One of just five inpatient psychiatric units in Vermont, our skilled, experienced staff also treats those dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), suicidality, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Referrals are accepted 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but must come from a physician, Emergency Room or other mental health professional. Call 802.747.3715.
