Daily, many of us experience behavioral health issues that can potentially impair our ability to function well, either in the home or work environment. Locally, and nationwide, statistics demand we commit to finding new ways to help people with acute emotional and behavioral disorders.
To our friends and neighbors throughout the community we serve, Underwood-Memorial Hospital makes that commitment — through the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program — providing effective and appropriate treatment in a positive and supportive outpatient environment.
Adequate support and treatment is essential in helping relieve distress and promoting healthy coping skills. If you or someone you care about is experiencing difficulty coping with life stressors, we recommend that you seek assistance and an evaluation.
Our Adult Program staff includes a psychiatrist, licensed clinical therapists, counselors, advanced practice nurses, administrative staff, and transportation. Together, this staff will provide compassionate assistance and therapy in dealing with:
- Coping with loss and/or death
- Impulsivity/mood swings
- The development of healthy relationships
- Suicidal thoughts
- Stress management
The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program will provide services similar to the intensity and scope of inpatient treatment, but with significantly less disruption to patients and their families.
The Adult Program follows an acute short-term model of intensive treatment targeted for 8-12 sessions. Additional services include the provision of lunch and transportation.
Our program is designed to offer:
- Comprehensive assessment
- Psychiatric interventions
- Medication management
- Individual therapy as needed
- Group therapy
- Psycho-educational groups
- Family therapy as needed
- Case management services
- Aftercare planning
- Substance abuse education
