Inpatient vs. Outpatient Care

While there are many similarities between our inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs, there are also a few key differences to keep in mind. Some of these differences include:

  • Age: Our inpatient program is designed for patients who are 18 and older, while our outpatient program is geared toward older adults.
  • Referrals: Patients interested in our inpatient program must obtain a physician referral, while outpatient referrals can come from either a physician, or another healthcare professional, human service agencies, clergy members, and/or concerned family members or friends.
  • Location: Our inpatient program is housed at the Behavioral Health Unit within Hunt Regional Medical Center, while our outpatient program is located at a separate facility in Commerce, Texas.
  • Length of Stay: Inpatients live within the Behavioral Health Unit throughout the duration of their treatment, while outpatients receive treatments during the day and return home each afternoon.
