New partial hospitalization programs help with transition, promote better patient outcomes11/15/17 04:05:pm
The Silver Lake Outpatient Center in Oconomowoc and the Brown Deer Outpatient Center now offer new partial hospitalization programs that will help patients after inpatient or residential care.
Silver Lake has added a FOCUS Adolescent Mood Disorders program for kids ages 13 to 17, and Brown Deer now offers an Addiction Partial Hospitalization Program for adults.
The FOCUS program uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with behavioral activation (BA) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills to help teens manage their depression or other mood disorders.
These programs are another step forward for Rogers, as we try to continue improving patient outcomes, according to Amanda Vogt, director of operations at Silver Lake Outpatient Center, especially for inpatient or residential patients who are transferring to PHP.
“Transition planning between levels of care is important because it provides treatment modality continuation, collaboration of care, and ability to revise the level of care if needed,” Amanda says. “It creates fluidity for patient and family. It allows for successful community reintegration with various combinations of independent practice, therapeutic care, and processing. ”
The FOCUS program in Silver Lake will run Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm and patients will stay in the program for around four to eight weeks on average. FOCUS also involves parents in treatment through things like Parent University and family sessions. The Addiction PHP in Brown Deer will meet Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm and has an average length of two to four weeks.
