Where To Find Psychiatric Hospitals in Houston
Finding your own psychiatrist and visiting them on a regular basis is crucial to avoiding crisis situations.
If you can connect yourself to an outpatient psychiatrist that you trust this will greatly reduce the likelihood of hospitalizations.
Despite your best efforts, a psychiatric emergency for you, a family member or client is still a possibility. My goal with this article is to prepare you if there is a crisis.
In this article, I will talk with you about local options for inpatient psychiatric services. Before getting into the specifics of the inpatient psychiatric hospitals in Houston lets discuss why someone would need hospitalization in the first place.
Why would someone need to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Houston?
A few situations where you, a client or family member may need immediate hospitalizations include:
- suicidal thoughts with a plan
- homicidal thoughts
- auditory hallucinations (hearing voices)
- visual hallucinations (seeing things that don’t exist)
- extreme paranoia
There are two ways to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital; voluntary and involuntary commitment.
Voluntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital is an easier task than admitting someone against their will. If you need information regarding involuntary commitment options refer to our article on Psychiatric Emergencies.
If you or a family member is feeling suicidal or suffering from hallucinations and is willing to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital continue reading for options.
