Many clients require goal-directed therapeutic services and interventions to help them address psychological issues that hinder their ability to live satisfying, healthy and productive lives. For some, short-term treatment is focused on resolving or adjusting to a new challenge or transition. Others with a complex emotional history require a continuation of their earlier treatment or long-term care. Referrals for clinical services are usually initiated by the case manager and participants are matched with an onsite behavioral health professional, or a provider in the vicinity if appropriate.
Behavioral health services include:
- Onsite psychiatric evaluations and monitoring (private pay)
- Monitoring of medications, if required
- Short-term or long-term counseling
- Crisis intervention
- Behavioral interventions
- Family counseling
- Relevant groups and workshops including anger management/conflict resolution and social skills development
