Behavioral Health Central Intake

Central Intake serves as Centegra Health System’s primary resource for individuals seeking access to any of our behavioral health services. Our staff will answer questions, set up initial appointments for programs, and respond to insurance questions.

Inpatient Services

Adults participating in this intensive level of treatment receive 24-hour care in a safe, comfortable, and structured setting. The adult unit offers individual, group, and family therapy with a licensed psychologist as well as education related to medication and managing psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder and depression.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides care for adults with mental health and/or substance abuse problems. This level of care is often a helpful transition for those being discharged from inpatient care. The PHP runs for six hours on weekdays.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides an alternative for people who need more than weekly outpatient therapy sessions. This level of care provides support, education, and guidance. Through these services, individuals learn to cope, manage stress, and increase self-esteem. The IOP is offered three hours a day, three to five days a week.

Continuing Care Program (CC)

The Continuing Care Program (CC) is available to people who have completed primary substance abuse treatment or rehab. The program provides support for maintaining a clean and sober life. The focus is on relapse prevention, building a sober support system, and commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

McHenry County Crisis Services

It is not necessary to go through the Emergency Department if you do not have a medical issue. Call the McHenry County Crisis Line—the same professional who would see you in the ER will help you over the phone and provide direction about getting appropriate treatment.

For 24-hour information, referral, crisis intervention, and assessment services, call (800) 892-8900 or visit the McHenry County Crisis Services website.
