About Silver Hill Hospital

Serving clients for more than 85 years, Silver Hill Hospital is committed to providing patients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders quality and personalized treatments with care and dedicated resources. They treat all of their patients with dignity and respect and provide them the level of care they need. Their treatments are led by a multi-disciplinary staff in a setting that fosters recovery and healing. Furthermore, they believe that collaboration with referring clinicians and family members of the patient can help in achieving positive and sustainable results.

What sets Silver Hill Hospital apart from the others is their approach. They start with detox services for patients who are in need for medical stabilization. This process lasts for 5 days before the treatment begins. It helps in keeping the withdrawal symptoms under control.

The next step is moving patients to short-term inpatient treatment. The goal is to ensure symptom reduction and crisis stabilization. Patients are given medication during this time, if necessary.

Silver Hill Hospital also offers a long-term transitional living program. This program builds upon the therapy that is completed during inpatient treatment. It incorporates group therapy, DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) and also, 12 step work. The program is offered separately to women as they believe that addiction & co-occurring disorders affect women differently than men.

When inpatient treatment is not an option because of school or work, to facilitate patients they offer intensive outpatient treatment which utilizes similar modalities as inpatient treatment. Silver Hill Hospital strives to break the vicious cycle of relapse & enjoy sober living. They treat a variety of addictions like cocaine, alcohol, opioids, marijuana, and substance abuse.
