Admission Process

Call our Intake Department at 573-302-0319, 24/7. An Intake Coordinator will gather your information and discuss the treatment needs of the patient along with current bed availability.

Center for Behavioral Health treats ages 18 and older. After speaking with our Intake Coordinator you will need to fax or email:

  • Face Sheet with Patient demographics
  • History and Physical
  • Required Labs and results: CMP, CBC,HCG for females, TSH, UA, UDS and EKG
  • List of current medications

Once the information is received and reviewed, the Coordinator and our Psychiatric Provider will determine if the needs of the patient can be met at our facility. Usually within 30 to 60 minutes of receiving information.

Center for Behavioral Health coordinates with voluntary and involuntary admissions with an average length of stay of 7-10 days. We are a free standing Acute Psychiatric hospital so patients MUST be medically cleared for admission.
