Pinnacle Treatment Centers’ new, first-of-its-kind campus Recovery Works Martinsville provides comprehensive inpatient mental health and addiction stabilization services for adults in a mental health crisis or an addiction-related, non-overdose crisis or emergency.

We offer compassionate, evidence-based care that places patient needs first. We understand that choosing inpatient psychiatric treatment is not an easy step to take, but it’s important to know that going to the hospital for a mental health crisis or emergency is similar to going to the emergency room for a physical emergency or accident:

In some cases, it’s the only appropriate option.

There are many reasons that admission to an inpatient psychiatric treatment program may be necessary. The most common include:


  • Suicidal ideation: thinking or talking about suicide
  • Suicidal behavior: making a suicide plan or threatening suicide

Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI):

  • Behaviors like cutting, burning, scratching, and hitting
  • People who engage in NSSI typically do not intend to die, but need professional support as soon as possible

Severe Psychotic Symptoms:

  • Visual hallucinations: seeing things that aren’t there
  • Auditory hallucinations: hearing voices that aren’t there
  • Debilitating paranoia: belief someone is watching, listening or planning harm
  • Person believing they are God, the president, or other grandiose delusions

Extreme and/or Dangerous Behavior (Mental Health or Substance Use Related):

  • Behavior that places the individual in crisis, or others, at immediate risk
  • Staying up for days at a time with little or no sleep
  • Leaving a job and/or family for extended periods of time with no notice or reason

Severe Episodes of Depression, Anxiety, or Trauma-Related Symptoms:

  • Inability to get out of bed or leave the house for work, school, or other reasons
  • Failure to meet basic personal hygiene needs
  • Not eating or drinking for several days
  • Not sleeping for several days
  • Total withdrawals from friends, family, or personal support system

Patients in our inpatient mental health program typically stay with us between 5 to 10 days based on their individual stabilization needs. When our multidisciplinary team determines a patient is safe, stable, and out of crisis, they work with the patient on a discharge plan to a less intensive level of care.


Upon admission to our inpatient mental health program, each patient receives a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment. Experienced, compassionate clinicians gather information on patients’ medical history, mental health history, treatment history, and any family, work, or social factors that may impact their mental health crisis or emergency. We learn all we can and design a program that’s tailored to meet individual needs.

Patients in our inpatient mental health program are monitored around the clock (24/7/365) by an expert multidisciplinary team, including psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, therapists, counselors, and support staff. Our first concern is the physical, emotional, and psychological safety of all patients.

Personalized treatment plans at Pinnacle Treatment Centers include a customized combination of the following treatment modalities:


  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Medication Management
  • Relapse Prevention (for alcohol/substance use disorder)
  • Stages of Change
  • Trauma-Informed Care


  • Anger Management
  • Grief/Loss Therapy
  • Life Skills
  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Spirituality Groups & Counseling

Our primary modes of therapy help patients move from crisis to stability, while our secondary modes of therapy help patients learn to maintain stability and create a solid foundation for long-term, sustainable recovery from a mental health or substance use emergency or crisis. Treatment may occur individually or in group settings. In some cases, we invite family members – with patient approval – to participate in therapy or counseling sessions.

LIFELONG RECOVERY What Next? Stepping Down, Aftercare, and Alumni Support

Patients may step down to a lower level of care, such as residential treatment, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), or general outpatient care. Patients with a substance use disorder may move to our sober living/recovery housing community, while others may return to independent living at home.

For all patients, we create a discharge plan – a.k.a. an aftercare plan – to help patients manage the next phase of their treatment and recovery journey. Our peer support specialists and case managers ensure each patient has the support they need to move forward in the best way possible. Patients leave our mental health program with the following information:

  • Primary diagnosis
  • Secondary diagnosis (if applicable)
  • Treatment history and progress
    • Strength and challenge areas
    • Helpful primary modalities
    • Helpful secondary modalities
  • Symptom management techniques
  • Relapse prevention strategies
  • Referrals for medical, substance use, and/or psychiatric care
  • Connections to social and practical support:
    • Community self-help groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) for people with AUD and/or SUD
    • Vocational support
    • Educational support
    • Housing/food instability support
    • Connection with our Alumni Community
