ABOUT CAMPBELL COUNTY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL – BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES
Located in Gillette, Wyo., Campbell County Memorial Hospital runs an eight-bed behavioral health inpatient unit and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adults and teens (13 and older) faced with severe psychiatric disorders. The hospital primarily addresses individuals with a primary psychiatric disorder, but does not provide on-site detoxification.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
All clients undergo an initial substance abuse assessment upon intake to form the groundwork of an individualized treatment plan. For individuals requiring stabilization, short-term inpatient care, consisting of pharmacological intervention, medication management, and therapeutic programming, may be recommended. To ensure patients have immediate access to treatment, the hospital offers crisis intervention and enhanced walk-in services for clients suffering from severe psychiatric issues.
Focusing on relapse prevention, IOP sessions include individual counseling, group therapy, and psychoeducational classes. Those with a dual diagnosis may also attend mindfulness-based stress reduction groups to help alleviate anxiety and stress common in early recovery. Designed for individuals with moderate to severe anxiety and depression, these stress-reduction groups may entail guided meditation, breathing techniques, and gentle yoga exercises.
Campbell County Memorial Hospital also offers a specialized program for suicide prevention and support. Parenting classes are also available. Across all programs, psychiatric and behavioral, the hospital emphasizes family participation as a core component to treatment. Loved ones may participate in family counseling sessions and attend codependency support groups. Prior to program completion, case managers promote sustained recovery by providing referrals to community-based resources.
Campbell County Memorial Hospital’s behavioral health unit is staffed by an experienced and licensed team of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, substance abuse counselors, case managers, and behavioral health technicians.
