Adult Neuropsychiatric Track – Towson

Service Chief: Robert Wisner-Carlson, M.D.

Admission Information: 410-938-3800

Our Adult Neuropsychiatric Track is a 4-bed, specialized track within our Psychotic Disorders Unit and our Adult Specialty Unit that serves adults with developmental and/or psychotic disorders. Our focus is on short-term stay or stabilization for patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Within this track, we offer specialized groups and intervention to help patients learn how to express their emotions, improve their ability to focus on tasks, and increase their ability to recognize and express positive feelings. Patients admitted to this track learn to develop and practice safe and positive social skills, in addition to working on improved sensory processing. We also educate on the importance of healthy hygiene and nutrition habits.

Participation in group activities is an integral part of recovery for most patients on this track, as it indicates that the patient is engaged in treatment, and gives the treatment team an idea of how the patient is able to cope with social stressors and demands once they return to the community. Programs and group activities provided on this track include:

  • Goal setting 
  • Exercise 
  • Arts and crafts 
  • Stress management 
  • Healthy hygiene and nutrition 
  • Medication education 
  • Coping skills 
  • Personal safety planning 
  • Leisure skill development
