Acute Residential

For individuals who need around-the-clock care

Acute residential care, provided at our Veritas Hospitals, is structured, around-the-clock treatment that comprises both individual and group therapies. What differentiates it from standard residential care is that a medical doctor and nursing staff are available onsite, 24/7. This level of care is suitable for individuals who are medically stable but in need of 24-hour behavioral and medical supervision.

Levels of Care

We begin treatment at the level most appropriate for each individual’s needs.
