Local mental health centers refer patients to Twin Valley Behavioral Healthcare by determining whether someone meets the criteria for admission. Various court systems across Ohio also refer forensic patients for admission. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide service for direct admissions or "walk-ins." Please contact your local mental health center for assistance.
We provide recovery-based, comprehensive, quality, cost-effective mental health services to adults with severe mental illness in a secure inpatient setting. The civil hospital, Kosar, has four general acute psychiatric units with 104 CMS-certified beds and three extended-care forensic units with 72 CMS-certified beds. The maximum-security facility, Timothy B. Moritz Forensic Unit, has four units with 52 beds and serves all 88 Ohio counties. The length of stay varies for each patient but generally is 10-14 days on the acute care units. Prior to discharge, we work collaboratively with the mental health centers to link patients with an outpatient treatment team or their own psychiatrist to maintain their progress in the community.
