Serving an adult population, the Vine Unit combines stabilization for acute symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders with an active, intensive therapy program. Patients on this unit are highly motivated to engage in their treatment, and participate in a full day of group and individual therapy. Patients work with members of their treatment team, including psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, registered nurses, occupational and expressive therapists, and mental health technicians.

The Vine Unit is a quiet, relaxed environment, helping patients work towards the therapeutic goal of gaining new perspectives and mastering new coping skills. The intensive and comprehensive nature of the program affords patients the opportunity to engage in a significant amount of therapy in a relatively brief amount of time as their psychiatric symptoms are stabilized.

The Vine Unit features an integrated approach, synthesizing elements of evidence-based methods and techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy, as well as Experiential Therapy. Whether it’s learning ways to regain balance and calm in the face of overwhelming emotions, exploring thought patterns related to depression, or developing assertive communication skills, patients have an opportunity to heal and grow individually, and also together.
