Adults needing these services have significant difficulty functioning in their homes, employment or communities. They may also be at high risk for harming themselves and/or others. They may be unable to attend to normal routines or expectations due to depression, anxiety or other mental health problems.
The focus of treatment is to address the crisis or behaviors which led up to the hospitalization. Attention is given to diagnosis, assessment and the selection of treatment interventions that will help to stabilize the person's behavior or condition quickly. The goal of treatment is to develop and implement a plan after discharge. Family members may be involved in decisions about treatment and aftercare planning.
