Services we provide

Intensive residential rehabilitative mental health services are time-limited services provided in a residential setting to recipients in need of a more structured setting and are at risk of significant functional impairments or deficits if they do not receive these services. Intensive Residential Treatment services are designed to develop and enhance psychiatric stability, self-management of symptoms, self-sufficiency, and the necessary skills to increase quality of life. The services are directed toward a targeted discharge date with specified recipient outcomes. Treatment adheres to standards that have been designed using Evidence Based Practices. These practices were developed over several years through research and pilot projects. They are the most up to date methods in providing individual treatment, focusing on learning the skills to manage one’s illness and pursuing personal goals.

Illness Management and Recovery is a program that helps people who experience psychiatric symptoms to develop personalized strategies for managing their mental illness and moving forward in their lives. The program is offered in both individual and group format. In the program, practitioners work collaboratively with people, offering a variety of information, strategies, and skills that people can use to further their own recovery. There is a strong emphasis on helping people set and pursue personal goals, empowering people to make choices, and instilling hope that change is possible.

Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment is mental health and substance abuse treatment integrated in a single treatment setting in which we adhere to an interdisciplinary approach. The team works collaboratively and assesses treatment readiness, uses motivational interviewing, employs harm reduction strategies with a non-confrontational approach, as well as stage-wise treatment interventions.

Family Education is treatment services for family members and recipients in need of information, assistance and support; including an educational curriculum addressing basic facts about the causes of mental illness and its treatment, including information about medication; practical advice or teaching how to manage and cope with difficult situations involving family members with a mental illness; family support groups and counseling; and community resources, including seeking crisis assistance and advocacy services. Family education can be provided on an individual or group basis.
