Our Mental Health Treatment Facility

San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital was the first free-standing psychiatric hospital to open in 25 years in our city. We have created a world-class facility that provides specialized services in a kind, respectful, empathetic and encouraging environment. Food is provided to our patients throughout the duration of their stay once admitted for inpatient care, and we have a welcoming cafeteria where meals can be shared in a social environment. SABHH patients can also enjoy the use of our gym, where they can work out or even play basketball. We want everyone we serve to feel comfortable at our facility, so we also allow our patients to wear their own clothes while in our care.

Our behavioral health hospital in San Antonio, TX, is accredited by CMS and The Joint Commission. These are the highest accreditation authorities in healthcare.

Mental Health Services in San Antonio

Behavioral and mental health problems are serious issues that require appropriate treatment. For some, inpatient care is necessary, while others may benefit from intensive outpatient care or partial hospitalization. Many of our patients may start in inpatient treatment and transition to the other options as their condition begins to improve. In any case, San Antonio Behavioral Health Hospital has a program that sets each individual up for recovery and reduces the likelihood of relapse. We even offer dedicated treatment plans for adolescents, active duty military personnel, and veterans, including programs for substance and chemical dependency.

SABHH provides mental health services for the following medical issues:

  • Mood Disorders (Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety)
  • Schizophrenia, Delusions, Hallucinations
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Alcohol/Drug Abuse
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Aggressive/Threatening Behaviors

All of our mental health services are administered by qualified psychiatrists, registered nurses, mental health clinicians and certified technicians. For those requiring inpatient care, our San Antonio behavioral health hospital also offers art therapy and weekly visits from our therapy dog, Rowdy. While all of these treatment components are effective in creating comprehensive care for our patients, we don’t just provide resources for those using our services. We understand quality mental health treatment requires education and coping mechanisms for family members and friends as well. That’s why we provide proper support for a patient’s loved ones, including family therapy sessions.
