What to Look for in a Mental Health Facility

When you are ready to start your journey towards wellness at a mental health facility, there are certain qualities you should look for when choosing a treatment center. Seeking help at a treatment center that offers an appropriate level of care to meet your needs can lead to lasting freedom from mental health struggles. However, choosing a suitable mental health facility requires understanding the facility’s benefits and services and your treatment needs.

First, it is essential to choose a treatment center that provides the right level of care for your needs. There are several options for mental health treatment, including inpatient (residential) programs, partial hospitalization programs (PHP), Intensive outpatient programs (IOP), and outpatient programs. Residential programs are generally the most intensive level of care, and outpatient programs are the least intensive. Partial hospitalization programs provide a similar level of care to many residential programs without the requirement of “living” at the facility while completing your treatment program. Intensive outpatient programs or IOP’s generally serve as a stepping stone between a residential or partial hospitalization program and an outpatient program or returning to your home environment.

Because each level of care is different in intensity, required treatment hours, and overall program length, it is important to understand your specific treatment needs and how each level of care can help you achieve your wellness goals. If you are unsure which level of care is right for you, contact us at Water Gap Wellness to learn more about how a mental health treatment program can help you put mental health challenges in the past.

It is also essential to choose a mental health treatment program that offers a variety of treatment models. Mental health treatment is highly beneficial and effective, provided the program provides a treatment model that can adequately address your treatment needs. When looking for a mental health facility, it is essential to choose a center that offers a variety of evidence-based behavioral treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). It is also important to look for programs that offer alternative therapy options such as equine-assisted therapy and others.

Also, choosing a program that addresses your treatment needs through personalized assessment and treatment plans is vital to achieving lasting recovery. Mental health challenges are highly personal and unique to the individual. Everyone with a mental health diagnosis (regardless of whether they share the same diagnosis) will experience their symptoms differently. The most effective treatment programs use thorough intake practices that use individualized assessments to build a unique treatment plan for each patient.

There is no such thing as an effective, cookie-cutter mental health treatment program like treatment for substance use disorders. Although some therapies are more effective for some conditions than others, it is still essential to choose therapy models that fit the individual, not the illness. Your comprehensive treatment programs should consider your diagnoses, current physical health, underlying co-occurring disorders such as addiction, and your treatment needs and goals.
