Assessment at Our Ohio Psychiatric Hospital

Georgetown Behavioral Hospital provides comprehensive assessment, diagnosis, stabilization, and treatment for adults facing mental health issues and/or co-occurring substance use disorders. At each level of care, we take every step to safeguard our patients’ wellbeing and dignity. This means providing expert care that is informed by kindness, empathy, and respect.

Before a patient begins treatment, several assessments are conducted to evaluate the patient’s physical, social and emotional health. The assessments help determine the appropriate level of care for each patient, which maximizes the benefits they will receive from treatment.
