Inpatient Treatment

Capio Nightingale has four specialist inpatient units for General Psychiatry, Addiction, Eating Disorders and Young People. Each unit has a team of nurses and a ward doctor who work alongside our consultant psychiatrists and therapists. Your team will work in partnership with you, helping you recover and reach your goals.

We have the expertise to approach the support and treatment we offer in a personal and flexible way to benefit you the most in your recovery. An initial assessment on the day you are admitted enables a tailor-made treatment programme that meets your specific and individual needs to be developed. We hope and will encourage you to participate in all your care planning, be involved in decisions about your treatment and help you to voice concerns you have or changes you would like to make. Progress is reviewed regularly with the treating Consultant, nursing and therapy staff. You will see your consultant a minimum of three times a week.

The majority of inpatient programmes are made up of group therapy sessions. Our group therapy aims to motivate, educate and help facilitate change by group members gaining hope and strength from sharing experiences and feelings with others in a safe environment. That is why group therapy is such a vital part of treatment. Patients new to group therapy often feel anxiety at the prospect of interacting with a group of people they do not know. This is a natural response and should be accepted.

Individual therapy can be added onto your tailor-made inpatient programme if advised by your consultant.

In addition to our therapy services our programmes include a wellbeing programme to support your recovery. This programme provides sessions on a variety of wellbeing themes including sleep and energy, self-image, mindfulness, fitness and exercise, nutrition, art therapy, massage and yoga.

When you feel ready for discharge, an individually-tailored aftercare plan is devised in conjunction with you. This could be stepping down to day therapy, outpatient care and or attending our aftercare support groups free for one year after treatment.
