Duall Diagnosed Inpatient-DD

Behavioral Health

General Information
Description of ServiceTrinitas Hospital recently celebrated the first anniversary of New Jerseyís first and only in-patient unit for the dually diagnosed mentally ill and developmentally disabled patient. The 10-bed secure unit, located at the New Point Campus, prevents long-term institutionalization by allowing patients to remain in the community either with family members or in a group home.

The inpatient unit offers a high staff-to-patient ratio, a specially trained medical team comprised of behavioral staff specialists and a psychiatrist, Dr. Purabi Bharatiya, nursing and social work staff with expertise in treating this patient population. The unit is designed to stabilize each patientís acute psychiatric symptoms and address behavioral issues and functional limitations. Patient discharges and follow-up treatment are facilitated by Trinitas Hospitalís Statewide Clinical Consultation and Training staff.
