Recovery Road Medical Center provides intensive outpatient treatment which is designed for patients who have an acute exacerbation of their symptoms of a mental health disorder, but yet do not require inpatient hospitalization and they can contract for safety in regards to thoughts of harming themselves or others. Some patients may have been recently hospitalized but require a level of care that is more intense than that which can be provided at the individual counselor or psychiatrist level. The patient has to be organized enough to benefit from the treatment program and not to be disruptive to other patients.
Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program
In addition to the groups that patients attend, patients also meet weekly with their program counselor to monitor progress towards their goals in their treatment plan. For those patients, without a referring psychiatrist, one of the medical directors will meet weekly with the patient regarding medication concerns or other medical issues. Where there is a referring psychiatrist, he or she may provide the weekly psychiatric consultation. The program is designed to be able to work in parallel with a patient’s primary psychiatric care and/or counseling program. Patient staffing is conducted weekly at the center.
