The Focus of Treatment
The focus is on enhancing the patient's skills and resources to foster personal dignity, control, self-reliance and quality of life. Under the medical supervision of a psychiatrist, the multi-disciplinary treatment team focuses on the individual patient, developing a treatment and discharge plan that includes recommendations for after care, follow up and community resource integration. Individuals are treated safely and effectively, through the evaluation and resolution of crisis situations that have occurred before admission.

Referrals may be made by physicians, nurses, family members, clergy, nursing homes, social workers or others concerned about the welfare of an individual. Individuals may also inquire about the program on their own behalf.
