When your loved one is affected by a chronic mental health disorder and/or is a threat to themselves or others, it is hard to know where to turn or who to talk to. Alliance Health Center is the area expert in treatment of patients with severe mental health disorders. In our Connections Program, we create a structured, safe, supervised environment to help the patient return to the healthiest life possible. We offer group therapy, training in independent living skills, intervention for co-occurring mental illness, medication compliance, recreational therapy and stress management courses.
Because the family and social relationships are critical to effective treatment, we also involve family members in the therapeutic process. Our counselors educate family members on the patient’s needs and treatment goals. They also assist them in working through their own feelings about the patient’s behavior. Referrals are made at discharge for individuals to continue with the appropriate level of treatment i.e. outpatient, residential, group home setting, etc.
