Psychiatric Treatment Options
for Adults & Seniors
Mental health issues and addiction can disrupt lives for adults and their families, causing serious issues at home and at work. When your issues begin to destroy your relationships and impact your career, it may be time to see help.
Admitting that you need assistance with your mental health may feel terrifying, but help is available at Peachford Hospital. Our group of experienced behavioral health professionals are dedicated to helping patients get healthy. Our full continuum of psychiatric programs help adults 18 and older address a number of issues, such as depression, anxiety,and other personality disorders and mental health problems. We also offer specialized care tailored to the needs of senior adults age 65 and older.
Our continuum of care offers inpatient and outpatient options, including:
The treatment process begins with a comprehensive evaluation to help diagnose any underlying medical or biochemical origins of disease and an individualized care plan is created to address each patient’s special needs. Treatment for each patient is administered by a multidisciplinary, psychiatrist-led team of mental health professionals that may include nurses, social workers, activity therapists, internal medicine physicians, teachers, substance abuse counselors and program specialists. When outpatient therapy is deemed to be the most effective course of treatment, Peachford Hospital provides a variety of outpatient services as well as a referral network to area health professionals.
Because psychiatric problems may be complicated by a coexisting substance abuse problem, Peachford provides specialized treatment for adolescents with dual diagnosis issues. Substance abuse treatment follows the 12-Step philosophy.
Therapeutic components may include:
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Drug and alcohol education
- Accredited school program
- Recreational therapy
- Activity therapy
- Pet therapy
- Medication education
AFTERCARE & FAMILY SUPPORT
Family participation is a vital component of adolescent treatment at Peachford Hospital and is designed to promote understanding and effective communication. Upon successful completion of treatment, a follow-up aftercare program is available at no charge to help support continued rehabilitation and wellness. Discharge meetings are held with family and, if appropriate, employers to strengthen patients on their road to recovery.
