The programs of psychiatric hospitals illustrate the differences we have about the origins and treatment of mental illness. They reflect the conflicts which divide us into camps. Most hospitals today are biologically oriented and their programs are short-term in nature. They mainly understand mental illness to be physical in origin and emphasize the physical and physiologic in their treatment approach. Fewer hospitals are socially-oriented. This paper deals with the socially-oriented hospital. It briefly discusses their theoretical frameworks and touches upon significant contributions to the literature. Main attention is given to one particular type of such institution. Its structure is described as it is used to satisfy its patients' needs and to generate healthy behavior in them. The way it treats its patients and the use to which it puts its own value-system in the treatment process are outlined.
