Mental Health & Drug Addiction Programs in Austin

Why is Cross Creek the best option for mental health & addiction treatment?
We provide comprehensive care.
We are highly accredited.
We are conveniently located.

At Cross Creek Hospital, we strive to provide treatment for as many individuals as possible, and so we pride ourselves on the wide range of programs we offer. Central to all of our programs is access to our highly-trained and compassionate treatment team, evidence-based interventions, and our commitment to long-term healing and growth.

What We Offer

All of our inpatient programs at our treatment center feature comprehensive care that includes physician visits, 24-hour nursing care, medication management, psychotherapy groups, process groups, nurse education group, goals group, community group, recreation therapy group, and gym time, as well as weekly individual therapy and family therapy according to each patient’s needs.

Adolescent Inpatient Program

The turbulent adolescent years can bring a host of mental health difficulties, but at Cross Creek, located in Austin, Texas, we are ready and able to help adolescents find a path through the storm at our treatment center. Our adolescent program is geared towards helping young men and women ages 13-17 learn to manage their mental health challenges and give them the opportunity to use their strengths to the greatest possible degree.

Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Program

Our adult psychiatric inpatient program provides care for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental health diagnoses. Far from grouping all adults into one category, however, our adult psychiatric inpatient program is designed to address each person’s individual strengths, goals, and challenges to provide an optimal chance for recovery while they are engaged in treatment.

Adult Detox Program

Detox is, for many people, the first step towards lifelong recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. At Cross Creek’s adult detox program, adults age 18 and older are provided the opportunity to withdraw safely from substances of abuse under the attentive care of our medical treatment team so that they can begin the work of building long-term sobriety skills.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Learn why partial hospitalization programs are beneficial to adults who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) provides people who are struggling with mental health and addiction challenges with a structured, high level of care without the inpatient, residential component. Patients receive care for several hours a day every day for the duration of the PHP, which may include group therapy, individual therapy, and other therapeutic interventions depending on their level of need. Patients typically go home or to a non-residential or non-inpatient setting at night and on weekends and may also meet with a medical provider or psychiatric nurse practitioner to discuss medication management or other medical needs depending on their specific care plan.

Patients can step down to the PHP from an inpatient or residential program, but that is not a requirement to participate in a PHP. Anyone can be assessed for admission into our PHP based on their level of need. At Cross Creek Hospital, we are committed to providing age-appropriate care through specialized treatment paths that are developed for each patient’s specific recovery needs. Our specially trained staff works closely with all patients to carefully assess their care goals before admission.
