Mental Health Services
RGSC is an inpatient psychiatric hospital, accredited by The Joint Commission and certified by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), with complete psychiatric services and psycho-social rehabilitative education.
Admissions are primarily through emergency detention and/or court commitment. The Mental Health Authority may recommend voluntary admissions for adults.
Service Area Description: Brooks, Cameron, Duval, Hidalgo, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, and Willacy counties
The mental health authority (MHA) must first screen and authorize for an individual to receive inpatient psychiatric services. Admissions are accepted seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Once an individual is admitted, the patient is transferred to a treatment unit where they will be assessed and treated by the assigned treatment team. The team of professionals will develop an appropriate individualized treatment plan with the patient. If in-patient hospitalization is deemed unnecessary by the treatment team discharge planning is initiated. If in-patient treatment is necessary, the treatment team will continue to provide in-patient psychiatric treatment to prepare the patient for discharge, and/or transfer to an alternate placement. Patients are only discharged to family, an accredited facility, or the MHA.
