The Adult Behavioral Health Unit at Lower Bucks Hospital is a short-term, acute inpatient treatment program. It is designed for adults, 18 years of age and older, who are experiencing acute psychiatric symptoms or an exacerbation of a chronic mental illness; significant enough to cause harmful behaviors to either themselves or others. We also offer treatment for those with co-occurring substance abuse disorders, secondary to psychiatric diagnosis. However, we are not a detox unit.
Admissions are accepted 24-hours a day.
Referrals may need to go through the emergency room for medical clearance and crisis evaluation.
For more information or admission, 24 hours/day, please call 267-229-3890
For psychiatric emergencies please go to your nearest emergency room or dial 911.
