New Lenox, IL April 1st, 2019 – Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital announces the expansion of mental health and chemical dependency treatment available at the hospital. On Monday, April 1st, Silver Oaks will begin accepting adults ages 18-54 into inpatient care. This new service offering will join the currently running Senior Adult Monarch Program. Silver Oaks is a comprehensive psychiatric hospital providing inpatient and outpatient services for mental health and chemical dependency care.
The 25-bed Adult Psychiatry Program provides care for adults struggling with Mental Health and/or Chemical Dependency conditions. More than 1,000 people die from suicide in Illinois each year and that number continues to grow over time. Individuals at risk for suicide span all age ranges, but there is a particular concern as these rates are dramatically increasing among middle-aged men. Mental health conditions often go undiagnosed and untreated due to stigma and lack of education on how to recognize signs and symptoms.
