The Behavioral Health Unit at Kendall Regional Medical Center provides an individualized quality treatment for all patients. The program milieu is therapeutic, supportive, accepting and confidential, which allows patients an opportunity to share and work through the difficult issues in their lives. We recognize that co-occurring substance abuse and mental illness are the expectation rather than the exception. Empathic, hopeful, integrated treatment relationships are one of the most important contributors to treatment success. Many patients are impacted by personal trauma in their lives which influences their experiences. We incorporate this understanding into our treatment model. The patients will receive encouragement and care from professional staff, and also find comfort and support from other patients who are also struggling with emotional turmoil.
Referrals for assessments or possible admission may be by calling our Intake R.N. 24 hours a day/7 days a week at (786) 315-5913. We have staff specifically dedicated to assist you throughout the assessment and admission process.
