Yale New Haven Health, Yale Medicine and high-end New Canaan psychiatric facility Silver Hill Hospital say they've created a new mental health and substance abuse treatment program for working professionals.

"The Steward House at Silver Hill" program is designed to provide personalized psychological and medical treatment that's responsive to professional challenges that can complicate treatment, according to Yale.

It's also designed to work around executives' busy schedules, they said.

Dr. John Krystal, chair of psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and chief of psychiatry at Yale New Haven Hospital said the new program "uniquely weds the distinctive professionalism and environment of the Silver Hill Hospital with the innovative leadership of Yale Psychiatry."

Over the years, Silver Hill has been a destination for celebrities such as actor Jon Hamm, musician Billy Joel and major league pitcher CC Sabathia, according to media reports.
