Treatment Program

Treatment for the patient includes medication (if indicated) and participation in the unit's patient program. The program is designed to meet the individual needs of the patient and to assist in developing skills to manage one's illness, thoughts, relationships and feelings outside of the hospital. The program is based on skills learned through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy education.

The unit's structure is also a part of the patient's treatment program, including scheduled visiting times and phone calls, having meals and socializing in the community areas and time in the separate wings, if necessary.
