Treatment At Eastside Community Mental Health Center (CMHC)

Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment provides a safe and structured environment where individuals can receive professional care and support for their mental health challenges. Within the facility, trained therapists, counselors, and medical staff work together to create personalized treatment plans tailored to each person's needs. Patients might participate in a variety of therapies, including individual counseling, group therapy, and possibly medication management. The goal is to equip individuals with the tools and strategies they need to cope with their conditions and lead fulfilling lives.

Levels Of Care

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured short-term intensive rehabilitation service primarily aimed at individuals with acute symptoms that are challenging to manage but do not necessitate round-the-clock care. PHPs typically run 3-5 days a week for about 6 hours each day, from 1 to 6 months, offering structured activities such as individual and/or group therapy. While some PHPs offer residential facilities allowing patients to stay overnight, others operate on a non-residential basis, enabling patients to return home each evening.

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment at rehab centers provides adaptable therapy schedules, usually spanning 1-3 hours weekly, enabling participants to maintain their everyday routines while undergoing treatment. On the other hand, intensive outpatient programs require a more dedicated time investment, frequently around 9-15 hours a week, delivering a deeper therapeutic experience without the commitment of inpatient residency.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy in rehab helps partners facing addiction recovery to strengthen their relationship. Expert therapists guide couples in addressing substance-related challenges, fostering trust, and enhancing communication, enhancing their chances of lasting recovery together.

Group counseling:

Group Therapy is a therapeutic space where individuals battling addiction come together to share experiences, gain insights, and support one another on their journey to recovery. Facilitated by trained professionals, this setting fosters communal healing and empowers participants to overcome the challenges of addiction through collective strength and understanding.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy allows individuals to access mental health services remotely via secure video conferencing. This level of care offers qualified therapy from the comfort of one's home, removing geographical barriers and often reducing wait times. Ideal for those with mobility challenges, tight schedules, or those in rural areas, it combines convenience with consistent, high-quality mental health support.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco cessation counseling is a dialogue with a counselor about your tobacco or vaping habits, examining its place in your daily life to strategize quitting. It offers interventions for individuals keen on quitting, encompassing behavioral guidance and group or one-on-one counseling. These sessions can range from short encounters (under 5 minutes) to in-depth discussions (over 10 minutes) and might require multiple meetings.
