How often you will see the Psychiatrist
You will see the psychiatrist on your first day and at least once per week while you are in PHP. Other clinical staff is also available every day to answer any questions or help with any medication concerns.
Therapist and Counselor Interaction
Our primary focus is group therapy; however, individual sessions are offered upon request. We strive to provide the best care for all group members which include both individual and family care.
Returning to Work
Attendance is very important and most people find it difficult to continue working. However, we will assist you with any FMLA, short-term disability and/or work absence paperwork you may need. If your work schedule does not interfere with your attendance and you would like to continue working, we will do our best to accommodate you.
PHP is completely voluntary and you are free to leave at any time. We encourage you to work with your treatment team to find the best time for you to end your treatment. It may be difficult to adjust to the treatment process at first. We will do our best to make you as comfortable as possible. Please communicate any concerns you have as soon as possible.
Length of Treatment
The length of your treatment is individualized based on your need. Each week, the treatment team will meet to review your progress. The program is voluntary and you are able to end your treatment at any time; however, we do encourage you to work with us for the best possible outcome. The average length of stay is 2-3 weeks.
Continuing Outpatient Treatment
While participating in PHP, you will need to reschedule any other therapy or psychiatry appointments. We would be happy to assist you in ensuring your current services resume within a reasonable time from the end of your treatment with us.
Confidentiality and Privacy
We pride ourselves on having respectful and professional employees. Your confidentiality and privacy are very important to us. Our employees are required to maintain the strictest ethical guidelines in regards to your confidentiality. If you have concerns about receiving treatment with an employee you know personally, please share your concerns with us.
You will be carefully assessed to ensure that you can benefit from the program. It may be difficult to adjust to the program initially. We will do our best to help you feel comfortable and protected.
For more information about this program or to be assessed for admission, please contact the CARE Team.
