Based in Westampton Township, New Jersey, Hampton Behavioral Health Center has been providing behavioral health services to adults, adolescents and seniors since 1986. The facility’s main campus is the only full continuum private psychiatric facility in Southern New Jersey and offers short-term dual diagnosis inpatient care as well as outpatient services. The organization also maintains two additional locations in Cherry Hill and Hamilton Township, which provide outpatient care for mental health and substance abuse issues.
Accommodations and Food
HBHC’s Westhampton Township facility is situated on a 23-acre tree-lined campus in a modern hospital-like setting and can house 110 residents at a time. Since the facility offers only short-term inpatient care, each client’s stay typically lasts five to seven days, though rarely more than 10.
Given that there are multiple programs available (including psychiatric services for adolescents and seniors), each program is kept in a separate unit. Those seeking dual-diagnosis services are housed in a separate 35-bed wing of the facility, where residents share rooms with one other roommate. Clients can expect twin beds, basic furnishings and private bathrooms.
The facility also provides three hot meals a day, served cafeteria-style along with staff and outpatient clients. Because the services at HBHC are short term, there are no official recreational activities aside from treatment. Still, clients do have access to art therapy, music therapy and yoga.
Treatment and Staff
While HBHC’s primary function is an acute psychiatric care facility, there is a dual-diagnosis program in place for clients who are also in need of substance recovery care. Though there are no official medical detox services available, the facility can accommodate those in need of detox by offering nursing supervision and daily visits with a medical doctor and psychiatrist during this process.
Most of each clients’ short stay is spent attending CBT-oriented group therapy sessions led by LADCs and meeting with social workers. Clients work with social workers to put together long term treatment plans. There is also a heavy emphasis placed on the 12-step philosophy of recovery, with on-site meetings held nightly.
Typically, a client’s next phase of treatment takes the form of transitioning into HBHC’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), both of which are housed in the same expansive facility. Those participating in the dual diagnosis PHP attend group therapy sessions every week day from 9 am to 3 pm at any one of HBHC’s three locations. Similarly, clients in IOP attend group therapy sessions four days a week from 9 am to 12:30 pm, or in the evening from 5:30 to 8:30 pm (available only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays).
While enrolled in the PHP and IOP programs, clients have access to staff psychiatrists, LADCs, Licensed Social workers (LSWs) and LPCs though individual therapy is only scheduled as needed. Typically PHP or IOP lasts three to five weeks before clients step down to less intensive outpatient care.
Given that most outpatient programs do not provide meals for clients, it is worth noting that those in the PHP or IOP at the HBHC’s main campus in Westhampton receive a daily meal in the main cafeteria as part of their program. Clients attending the Cherry Hill or Hamilton Township outpatient programs can also expect a catered lunch every day from a local eatery.
Aftercare is also provided, typically in the form of one group session a week and continuing access to staff resources.
While HBHC’s specialty may lie in providing psychiatric care and mental health services, clients in need of substance abuse treatment can still expect comprehensive care provided they qualify for dual diagnosis services. HBHC offers inpatient treatment supervised by a medical staff that provides individualized attention and a host of modern therapeutic methods, as well as a PHP and IOP, followed by aftercare services. In all, the facility is worth considering for a range of needs to those living in Southern New Jersey.
