Our 23-bed inpatient treatment unit, located on the third floor of Berkeley Medical Center, is designed to meet the acute mental health needs of patients ages 18 and above. We accept voluntary and involuntary patients. Patients are admitted 24-hours a day through our Emergency Psychiatric Services. We offer a caring, supportive and respectful environment while maintaining strict patient confidentiality.

Emergency Psychiatric Services

Clinically Supervised Mental Health Professionals are available 24-hours a day to provide crisis intervention and complete psychiatric assessments for patients of all ages; these are reviewed with the on call provider.

Emergency Psychiatric Services (EPS) Crisis Workers provide a range of services including

  • assessment and referral of patients to the appropriate level of care
  • case management with referring facilities
  • facilitation of communication between the Emergency Department, or referring facility, and to ensure timely service
  • pre-authorization of insurance coverage when needed

If you have any questions regarding the Behavioral Health Program, outpatient resources, substance abuse treatment options or involuntary commitment, an EPS Crisis Worker is always available by phone.

Involuntary Commitment Process

If you have a family member or friend that is in significant need of hospitalization due to a risk of harm to themselves or others, you have the option of filing a petition for commitment. This process includes completing the petition application, having it notarized, and contacting East Ridge Health Systems. From that point, a crisis worker at East Ridge will connect with the Mental Health Commissioner to present the completed petition. If the Mental Health Commissioner grants a hearing, the person filing the petition will be contacted and will appear as a witness at the hearing. If the person being filed on is deemed committable, the person will receive inpatient mental health services until they are documented to be stable and safe as determined by a psychiatrist’s evaluation. Documentation for filing a petition can be obtained through the Behavioral Health Unit at Berkeley Medical Center or by contacting East Ridge Health Systems at 304-263-8954.

While the Behavior Health Unit at Berkeley Medical Center is not a detoxification facility, we do provide treatment to those patients with a secondary diagnosis of substance abuse. Eligibility for admission is determined after an appropriate assessment reviewed with a provider. Once the provider determines the eligibility of the patient, inpatient behavioral health services (or other services as indicated) are offered.

For those wishing to discontinue consistent use of alcohol or benzodiazepines, it is essential to complete a medically supervised detoxification process.

If an individual does not qualify for inpatient admission but is still in need of substance use services, a Crisis Worker will complete a referral for an appropriate service outside of the hospital.

Warning signs that substance abuse needs to be addressed include:

  • Notable interference with school, employment and/or family roles
  • Neglect of children and/or household tasks
  • Decrease in financial responsibility
  • Emotional instability
  • Neglect of personal hygiene
  • Extreme or uncharacteristic aggression
