Description of Services:

A thorough clinical assessment identifies the person's strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. Staff use this information to formulate an individualized service plan (ISP) that guides the treatment process from beginning to end. Methods used to treat substance abuse and mental health disorders include researched-based curricula and/or clinically proven approaches including motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy, and brief solution-oriented treatment.

Our Psychiatric Health Services are provided in our sites by M.D. Psychiatrists or by Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners face to face or by using "Tele-Psychiatry" which is state of the art private communication technology. Tele-psychiatry is the application of Telemedicine to the field of Psychiatry. It has been the most successful of all the telemedicine applications so far.

Participants meet in a private office where they can see and speak to their Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on a private monitor much like a large TV screen. Our staff work with the participant and if necessary with family members to make each tele-mental health session, personable, comfortable, and beneficial.
