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 Edumd 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 Edumd 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 Edumd 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 Edumd 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.
