Each of our mental health programs at San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital is designed with a person-centric focus. That means we treat each and every patient as an individual. Our programs are created and implemented by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including psychiatrists, therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and mental health technicians, who specialize in mental health treatment for teens, adults, and military personnel.
Both inpatient and outpatient programs at our San Antonio facility are centered on reducing psychiatric and/or substance abuse symptoms, stabilizing the patient, and helping patients positively cope with psychiatric disorders in everyday life.
