Bourbon Behavioral Health is a 24-bed adult (ages 18-55) psychiatric inpatient program located within Bourbon Community Hospital. Individuals who are considered for admission to the unit must meet criteria showing a need for admission for acute inpatient psychiatric care. These individuals may be experiencing a psychiatric crisis, complications related to noncompliance with medications, or be distressed to the level that they have become a danger to themselves or others. The length of time in the hospital is based on symptoms and response to treatment. But on average the stay is five to seven days.
Our dedicated interdisciplinary team provides individualized and comprehensive treatment that goes beyond just acute stabilization. The BHU excels in providing individuals with the skills and resources necessary to maintain their journey to wellness well beyond their discharge. We strive to create an environment that is free of negative stigmas about mental illness and provide individuals with the atmosphere and support to begin their recovery.
