Physician Office Services

Licking Memorial Outpatient Psychiatric Services include physician services of general psychiatry. Our physicians provide comprehensive assessments in the specialty of psychiatry, as well as ongoing treatment and medication management when appropriate. They consult with the primary care providers and specialists, and make referrals to individual or group therapy when appropriate.

A Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) also provides individual and family therapy. The LISW works independently or conjointly with the psychiatrist or psychologist to provide comprehensive service. For physician office services, call (220) 564-4873.

Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Services

Inpatient hospitalization is primarily acute crisis intervention with an emphasis on strengthening the individual’s coping skills. The program is staffed by a team of licensed professionals, including psychiatrists, registered nurses, clinical social workers, professional counselors and occupational therapists.  Each patient has a complete physical examination at the onset of treatment, and a treatment plan is developed to meet his or her specific needs. Treatment may include individual and group therapies. Education in community resources, communication skills, stress management, relaxation techniques, social skills and medication is offered. Overall patient satisfaction is 95 percent.

Family involvement is important. A Licensed Independent Social Worker and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor are available to meet with family members.

For more information or a referral, call (220) 563-HEAL (4325), and ask to speak with the inpatient psychiatric and detoxification unit.
