Christian in Psychiatric Hospitalization

In this article I am going to briefly share with you the purpose of being hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital. Behavioral health hospitals are discussed in this article. State hospitalization, private inpatient care, and lastly outpatient group therapy will be the focus of our time spent together. These are the three I am personally familiar with. I will write from research conducted, while drawing from personal experience.

State Hospitalization

In the state level of psychiatric care, possibly one can be hospitalized for a long period. This is not the place most people spend their time getting help for their mental disease. But it remains a safe place for folks who are struggling to become balanced and stabilized.

Inpatient Care Hospitalization

Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization time spent is typically 5 to 14 days. People with bipolar disorder are helped. People with any kind of disorder may find a psychiatric hospital to be the first step towards recovery. The good news is the stay is short and focused. Two primary functions used by hospitals. First, psychiatrists use medications to help brain chemicals fire properly. Secondly, counselors will hold group therapies. There’s strong help to a week to two weeks spent in an inpatient hospitalization. By the way, to add one extra part, I have never been prevented from taking a Bible with me into the hospital.

Outpatient Care Hospitalization

Medication management may or may not be a part of the help you get from outpatient care. The best service received will be group therapy. Individual counseling is typically something you will have to seek on your own. Some outpatient services offer it in the hospital setting. In outpatient care hospitalization, one goes to the hospital for treatment and home in the day’s end.

God Uses Psychiatric Hospitals

Some religious folks do not believe in medical treatment. I will leave the debating to the apologists. Our position is Father God heals. He heals by medication management and therapy. The Lord works through hospitalizations but never separate or apart from His hand. The physical brain is healed by the God who created the physical environment. Spiritual health is convicted, converted and sanctified for the salvation of the soul through the Word of God – the Bible.
