Inpatient units are designed to treat adults with general psychiatric or intellectual disabilities, as well as adolescents with general psychiatric issues. Patients with co-occurring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders can be treated on most units. There are also partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for patients with psychiatric and co-occurring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders.
The Intellectual Disabilities Inpatient Unit at Fuller Hospital has served adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities for more than 25 years. The program provides behaviorists and occupational therapists to support patients. The unit is the only inpatient adult intellectual disabilities unit in Massachusetts.
The program provides diagnosis and treatment to persons with intellectual disabilities who are experiencing acute, co-occurring behavioral or psychiatric disorders. The goal of the program is to enable patients to return to community living after a short-term hospital stay.
The program provides a safe, respectful, therapeutic environment in which an individual can be understood and treated. Individual treatment planning is conducted with input from the patient, family and their community-based team.
Psychiatrists at Fuller Hospital work in a collegial, supportive and caring environment. There is opportunity for professional and personal growth working with diverse patient populations, other physicians, clinical staff and administration in a beautiful state of the art treatment center.
