In brief: Treatment starts

Usually you'll stay 3 or more days.
Medication will be started (or changed if you already take some), & you'll have individual & group therapy, & other activities. A social worker may connect you with social service agencies if you need it, a dietician may stop by, and there may be a little job counseling. They'll set up office treatment for you after you go, when you feel safe and non-suicidal.
