Hadley staff discuss a treatment plan
At the Hadley Center for Behavioral Health, our treatment consists of four components:
Assessment and Evaluation: Each patient is given a comprehensive assessment and evaluation by members of a multi-disciplinary team of behavioral health professionals. Members of the team include psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, care coordinators, activity therapists and utilization review experts.
Treatment Planning: Through the assessment process patients work with clinical staff to develop treatment goals that become a “road map” to recovery during the patient’s hospitalization. The treatment planning process is started using a person-centered approach, with the patient providing input regarding their concerns and what they want to resolve. The patient and members of the multi-disciplinary team meet to discuss the course of treatment and to review success toward recovery, as well as coordination of aftercare services so that patients may continue with recovery after discharge.

In addition, a care coordinator will meet with each patient to find out what the patient may need in order to assure success outside of the hospital and that the patients has the support and follow-up to continue with the positive gains made during hospitalization.
