Intensive Treatment Program provides crisis stabilization and symptom reduction for individuals 18 years or older who are in acute psychiatric distress. This service treats both voluntary and involuntary patients in acute crisis who require immediate assistance in a secure, safe, and structured environment. Springbrook Hospital is a Baker Act-receiving facility which address both mental health and substance abuse issues.
While there are a variety of reasons that someone may need inpatient treatment, people with mood disorders are especially prone to needing crisis care. Mood disorders include mental illnesses like bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder, and sufferers are more likely than others to have especially bad days where they can endanger themselves.
During this residential treatment, patients work with our team of psychiatrists, social workers, therapists, nurses, and other unit staff members. This team helps patients identify the sources of their psychological issues that are impairing their ability to function. From there, the team considers the individual’s strengths, areas of difficulty, and situational factors which have contributed to the current crisis.
All of this culminates in a program that restores patients to a healthy state of mental wellness. Our program is designed to get patients back to their daily lives; download the brochure below for more information about this residential treatment program.
