General Information
Description of ServiceA program with a secure setting that serves individuals who require detention in a highly secure building and who are committed via the criminal justice system for evaluation and/or treatment including court-ordered evaluation for trial competency or sentencing using a psycho-legal approach and for men who are chronically mentally disabled; i.e., pre-sentenced or NGRI/GBMI. Women are provided interdisciplinary treatment regardless of legal status. Another area emphasizes assessment and treatment for pre-trial and pre-sentence. Substance abuse issues are also addressed. The Forensic Center maintains relationships with the prison and criminal justice systems. The Regional Forensic Unit at Norristown State Hospital provides patients with the highest quality of treatment, support and learning opportunities to enhance the quality of their lives. We serve as a model of excellence for the treatment of severe mental illness resulting in quick remission and continued recovery. Our motto is "Fostering recovery and wellness for those in detention." This is carried out through a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment which is tailored to the specific psychiatric and psycho-legal needs of each patient. We are dedicated to the service of patients, families and the criminal justice system. We work collaboratively with agencies throughout the Commonwealth.
