Acute and Sub-acute inpatient units for adult patients are structured to provide intense treatment for patients who are an imminent danger to themselves or to others or display high potential for such behavior. The treatment milieu program encourages active patient participation with a focus on identifying and working on specific problems, goals and daily tasks.
The schedule includes structured groups, skills training, recreational therapy, and occupational therapy within the framework of a cognitive behavioral motivational enhancement model of care. The multidisciplinary treatment team of psychiatrists, social workers and nurses is complimented by recreational and occupational therapists.
Family sessions when indicated are an important component of each patient’s individualized treatment plan. Discharge planning begins on admission and focuses on providing effective treatment and support when it is time to be discharged from this level of care.
