St. Luke’s Canyon View Behavioral Health Services

St. Luke's Canyon View is an inpatient psychiatric facility for patients over the age of 18. We accept both medically and socially complicated patients to treat serious mood, psychotic, personality, substance and neuropsychiatric disorders. All patients are admitted in accordance with Idaho and federal statutes.

Treatment begins with an initial diagnostic evaluation that encompasses a patient’s medication, therapy and psychosocial needs. Treatment methods are patient-centered and evidence-based; and may include psychopharmacology, individual therapy, group therapy, and milieu therapy. We focus on acute stabilization and returning patients to their lives as quickly and safely as possible. When appropriate, a patient’s family or support system can play a key role in the treatment of a patient’s mental health. Patient permitting, the treatment team will involve and support family members during the patient's hospital stay. 

Each patient's length of stay depends upon the severity of the patient’s symptoms as well as the patient’s progress toward treatment goals (our average length of stay is four days). The treatment team works collaboratively with patients and social workers to develop an aftercare plan that supports the patient's needs at the time of discharge. 

Admission Process

Admissions occur through local emergency departments, from general hospital units and through community-based providers. Determination of eligibility for admission will be based on clinical assessment. Most medical insurance plans cover all or part of the cost of care; patients are encouraged to check with their insurance carrier to understand their coverage. Financial arrangements may also be available. 

For information or to arrange a confidential consultation without cost or obligation, please call our 24-hour help line at 1-800-657-8000.
