TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon an initial assessment, a multidisciplinary team forms an individualized treatment plan and determines an appropriate level of care, according to the center’s website. Taking a client-centered treatment approach, the facility offers two levels of addiction-related care: inpatient treatment and intensive outpatient programs.
Short-term inpatient treatment includes insight-oriented group therapy, coping skills training, medication management, educational groups, and therapeutic massage sessions.
The hospital’s intensive outpatient programming is designed for individuals who do not require the supervision or structure of residential treatment. Clients meet for 12 or more hours, Monday through Friday, in either the mental health or substance abuse track. With an average duration of three weeks, each track utilizes behavioral health assessments, educational sessions, group counseling, and medication management. If appropriate, family counseling is available in both the inpatient and the outpatient programs.
Special geriatric programming is designed to treat individuals ages 55 and up. Some of the services offered in geriatric programming include daily therapeutic activities, group and individual therapy, and medication management.
According to the center’s website, the medical center employs psychiatrists, licensed nurses, clinical social workers, dual diagnosis counselors, psychologists, dietitians, recreational therapists, and hospital chaplains (to assist with any spiritual needs).
