Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital Expands Inpatient Mental Health Programs

New Lenox, IL April 1st, 2019 – Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital announces the expansion of mental health and chemical dependency treatment available at the hospital. On Monday, April 1st, Silver Oaks will begin accepting adults ages 18-54 into inpatient care.  This new service offering will join the currently running Senior Adult Monarch Program. Silver Oaks is a comprehensive psychiatric hospital providing inpatient and outpatient services for mental health and chemical dependency care.

The 25-bed Adult Psychiatry Program provides care for adults struggling with Mental Health and/or Chemical Dependency conditions. More than 1,000 people die from suicide in Illinois each year and that number continues to grow over time. Individuals at risk for suicide span all age ranges, but there is a particular concern as these rates are dramatically increasing among middle-aged men. Mental health conditions often go undiagnosed and untreated due to stigma and lack of education on how to recognize signs and symptoms.

Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital Announces Opening Date & Senior Adult Program

New Lenox, IL, January 16, 2019 – Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital announces the official opening will take place in late January 2019.  Silver Oaks is a comprehensive psychiatric hospital providing inpatient and outpatient services for mental health and chemical dependency care.

Initially, Silver Oaks will be opening with the Monarch Program, a specialized treatment program for senior adults. The 25-bed Senior Adult psychiatry program provides care for older adults struggling with Mental Health and/or Chemical Dependency problems.

The realities of suicide completions in the elderly are staggering. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 75.4 million baby boomers. If elderly suicide rates remain the same, that means that more than 11,000 lives will be lost to suicide annually as baby boomers reach 65 and older. Suicide is an important problem among older adults. Suicide rates are particularly high among older men, with men ages 85 and older having the highest rate of any group in the country. Suicide attempts by older adults are much more likely to result in death than among younger persons.
