Getting Help: Self Referrals

Self Referrals

If you are struggling with depression, an addiction, or another mental health concern, please know that help is available. You are not alone, and we would be pleased to listen to your concerns and respond with understanding and compassion. 

At San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, we offer a variety of programs and services to help patients address and begin working to manage psychiatric issues, substance abuse/addiction issues, issues faced by military personnel, and psychiatric issues that teenagers (12 – 17) experience.

Adult Psychiatric Programs

Our inpatient, partial hospitalization, and outpatient programs are designed to give you the level of care you need to help you manage your symptoms. Each patient will participate in a tailored program of care based on the recommendations of our interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and mental health technicians who work closely with you and your family.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by psychiatric symptoms or substance abuse or addiction, we invite you to call us for help. Symptoms could include:

  • Suicide attempts or strong suicidal thoughts
  • Severe depression
  • Substance abuse or addiction that is out of control
  • Recent self-mutilation or other self-damaging behaviors
  • Symptoms of psychosis or schizophrenia
  • Severe trauma
  • Severe anxiety
  • When you need medical stabilization due to the side-effects of psychotropic medications
  • When outpatient programs aren’t working for you
