Care is provided utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. A typical patient stay is a week to ten days. A program of medication, structured activities, counseling and other methods may be used to prepare the patient for discharge from the hospital. For some patients, the goal is stabilization so that they can return to their home. For others, their inpatient stay may be a transition to a new lifestyle, perhaps moving from living alone to an environment that can better meet their needs. Whatever the individual circumstances, the program is designed to work closely with the entire family in charting a course of treatment and recommending after-care.
The Treatment Team:
- Board Certified Psychiatrist
- Social Worker/ Case Manager
- Registered Nurse/ Licensed Practitioner
- Activity Therapist
- Certified Patient Care Technician
The team is supported by a Board Certified Internist, Nutritionist, Pharmacist, and as needed, an Occupational and Physical Therapist.
