Programs and Services
At Parkwood, we believe in offering more options to our patients to make our programs more assessable and our treatments more effective, while maintaining high levels of quality care and containing costs.
THE FAMILY PLAYS A BIG PART
At Parkwood, family involvement is a vital part of our treatment process. Because the patient returns home frequently, it is important that family members become actively involved in the therapeutic process. Our counselors and staff educate family members on the patient’s treatment goals and needs. Just as importantly, our counselors assist family members in working through their own feelings about the process.
Individuals may be referred to any of these programs by a general practitioner, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional either in private practice or associates with other hospitals. Inquiries may also be made by family members or patients themselves by calling 1-800-477-3422. Following an assessment, admission to one of the above programs will be recommended, if appropriate.
The programs are offered on various schedules, such as days, evenings, weekends and combinations of these. The programs are of varying duration, and because some are used as a transitional step between an initial crisis and/or re-entry into daily living activities, a patient may be phased into a more brief duration of treatment than normal, depending on needs.
