Behavioral Medicine

At King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, we offer individualized care in a friendly, supportive environment. Our professional team conducts a thorough evaluation to help determine what is causing a patient’s distress and how we can best help. Our clinical team checks to see if there are any underlying origins to the patient’s symptoms. The team then works with the patient, their family and other healthcare professionals to develop an appropriate course of treatment.

Treatment can include individual meetings with psychiatrists, social workers, group therapy, recreational therapy and educational programs.

Behavioral Medicine Unit

The Behavioral Medicine Unit is for adults who need inpatient treatment for emotional and behavioral disorders. The unit is licensed for 27 beds, including four primary withdrawal management beds, provides 24-hour nursing care in a tobacco-free environment, and has a team of medical professionals working together to care for you.

Admission

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day. Referrals may be made by physicians, psychologists, social workers, mental health professionals, social service agencies, family members or friends. The final decision regarding admission is made by a psychiatrist. Our staff is available 24 hours a day. All information is confidential.

Patient Information

We understand the family’s need to be kept informed of the patient’s progress and we encourage support. Once the patient is admitted to the Behavioral Medicine Unit, a family member may be given an access ID number. This access ID number is released only to selected individuals and only with permission from the patient. This ID number allows family members to have either personal or telephone contact with the patient during their stay.

Going Home

Together, the patient, the family and the treatment team develop an appropriate aftercare plan. This may involve a day hospital program, a community-based program or outpatient therapy. Our goal is to help each individual continue the progress that he or she has already made in the hospital.
