Inpatient services at Alliance Health Center are designed to help adolescents, adults and senior adults cope with a wide variety of psychiatric disorders. Our multidisciplinary approach to inpatient care involves medication management, individualized care from a psychiatrist and a robust therapeutic milieu. Groups are intended to offer various ways to remain secure and stable when you return home.
Treatment is intended to be one step on your road to recovery. We strongly encourage you to follow up with your outpatient provider who will assist you in maintaining psychiatric wellness. If you do not have an outpatient provider, we can help you acquire one during discharge planning.
Community orientation group occurs each morning and evening. The purpose of this group is to keep you informed about the routine aspects of the unit, answer any questions you may have and set your daily goal.
Process group occurs at various times during the day depending on the unit schedule. It is run by a licensed master level therapist. It is intended to teach coping skills, help prepare plans for remaining stable after discharge and offer a chance to speak with others with similar experiences.
Nursing group takes place every afternoon. Run by a licensed nurse, it focuses on medical, nutritional and medication issues. Discharge planning is also discussed at this time.
Recreational groups are conducted twice a day by a certified therapeutic recreational specialist or another qualified staff member. They are designed to teach coping skills and allow patients to have active fun and take their minds off treatment.
