Find Psychiatric Hospitals and Medical Centers in Utah

Psychiatric hospitals are medical centers that support a behavioral health unit or similar inpatient and psychiatric treatment services. Some of these hospitals have advanced treatment centers that offer specialized services, innovative programs, and/or experimental treatment protocols. Others provide essential behavioral health services in an inpatient setting. Most hospital-based services offer medical stabilization that generally lasts between 1-5 days, though longer stays are possible in certain circumstances. Residential treatment centers, in contrast, offer inpatient services that typically last weeks, months, or a full year. (Some of both kinds of facilities also offer day treatment and other outpatient/inpatient hybrid treatment programs.)

There are several psychiatric hospitals in Utah that serve as treatment centers for psychiatric problems and other inpatient mental health services.
