Behavioral Healthcare: by David S. Bathory, Psy.D., Bathory International LLC

Behavioral Healthcare consists of mental health and treatment for people with substance abuse problems

In the USA There is both In patient (hospital care that is voluntary, and involuntary) and out patient care (care provided in the community). Involuntary treatment has strict laws that were written to ensure that people’s rights to freedom would not be abused.  The laws are not followed in many of the US States and people can be detained based upon hearsay.  Out patient care is much less expensive to provide than in patient treatment, yet the “need for beds” continues to grow. State hospitals provide long term treatment usually 6 months or more and are paid for by state and federal funds.  Private hospitals provide shorter term care usually a maximum of 30 days and can be paid by private insurance or by state funds.  Misuse and abuse of Behavioral Health Patients is on the rise.  And the USA is disabling (making people dependents on the state) a greater number of people as mentally ill or chronic substance abusers.
