We also provide a dual diagnosis program for adults who have addiction or substance abuse issues in addition to emotional and behavioral problems.

Inpatient Program – Older Adults

Although the golden years may be rich with newly acquired free time and the joys of family and friends, they also bring unique challenges to many people. Some adults struggle with a loss of independence because of physical limitations. Others deal with grief after the death of a spouse. And yet others experience a brain disorder such as Alzheimer's or dementia that brings unique needs and hurdles.

Our program helps older adults adjust to the changes they experience later in life. We offer treatment for individuals who experience the following symptoms:

  • Severe depressive episodes
  • Suicidal behavior or threats
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Severe agitation
  • Inability to care for self
  • Psychosis
  • Sleep or eating disturbances
  • Physical aggression

Dementia can limit an older adult's ability to maintain his or her former level of independence. These disorders often result in depression and a loss of self-esteem. We focus on maximizing quality of life for these individuals while providing assistance to help them function at their highest level of independence and comfort. Services include:

  • Psychological and developmental assessments
  • Family diagnostic assessments
  • Outpatient psychotherapy groups
  • Communication skills training
  • Caregiver's support group

 

Adult Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs

These programs treat adults who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems but do not present the potential for harm to themselves or others. Patients may be admitted directly to one of these programs or transitioned following an inpatient stay. Some of the services include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Crisis stabilization
  • Family therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Skill building interventions
  • Problem solving interventions
  • Medication education
  • Substance abuse education
  • Spirituality
  • Discharge planning
  • After care program
