Short term treatment typically lasts between one and three months. Patients best suited for short term treatment often come to Affinity Treatment Centers from a hospital environment, another treatment center or an unsuccessful living environment seeking stabilization, reduction of problematic symptoms, and continuum of 24 hour care in a structured, nurturing home environment. Patients transitioning from a crisis situation may also be ideal candidates for short term care at Affinity Treatment Centers.
Individuals enrolled in our Intensive Outpatient Program attend therapy at Drew Edmund Psychiatric Centers three to five days a week. Because each patient has his or her own individualized treatment plan, the specific length of the program may vary. Our personalized approach ensures each participant receives specialized care that is catered to helping him or her return to a functional, healthy life. Just as in our residential living programs, we balance the treatment methods in our Intensive Outpatient Program to best serve the unique needs and goals of each patient. This includes group therapy as well as individual sessions that focus on helping patients manage anger, guilt or shame, curb destructive impulses, express their thoughts and feelings, learn appropriate socialization skills, and form realistic long-term goals for the future.
EMDR is a treatment, a therapy, that brings desired results in just a few sessions –with very little talking, without the use of drugs, without the use of “homework” between sessions– when medications are not working LOW ENGERGY NEUROFEEDBACK SYSTEM (LENS) maybe the treatment for you. LENS Neurofeedback can result in brainwave changes. With those changes we often see greater relaxation and sense of ease and emotional resilience. LENS Neurofeedback is not diagnosis specific. It is not a treatment for any specific condition. It is a generalized process that optimizes brain function.
RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT at DREW EDMUND PSYCHIATRIC CENTERS
Short term residential treatment for mental illness
Short term treatment typically lasts between one and three months. Patients best suited for short term treatment often come to Drew Edmund Psychiatric Centers from a hospital environment, another treatment center or an unsuccessful living environment seeking stabilization, reduction of problematic symptoms, and continuum of 24-hour care in a structured, nurturing home environment. Patients transitioning from a crisis situation may also be ideal candidates for short term care at Affinity Treatment Centers.
Long term residential treatment for mental illness
Drew Edmund Psychiatric Centers also provide long term residential treatment for those patients in need of an extended continuum of care. With long term residential care, patients learn to further develop successful activities of daily living. These include daily activities such as personal hygiene practices, budgeting skills, job skills and career development, time management, appropriate socialization skills, interpersonal relationship development, emotional stabilization and the ability to form realistic, long-term goals. Residents who require additional time to stabilize on their medications may be in need of long term residential care. For those individuals who have completed our program but feel they need additional time and support, we offer a step-down program. This is a more independent model and involves the resident in self-care and maintenance as well as self-administration of medications.
Residents are welcome at Drew Edmund Psychiatric Centers for as long as is necessary to obtain the skills for successful living in an independent setting. It is one of our chief goals to prevent the need to return to a higher level of care in the future by providing each individual with the tools necessary to be successful. The amount of time this requires is unique to each individual. That is why Drew Edmund Psychiatric Centers does not require a specific length of stay. Requiring everyone to commit to a predetermined length of time in treatment would be financially beneficial for the treatment center but highly unbeneficial, financially for the resident. This is yet another way we are able to keep our fees affordable.
