OCD and Anxiety
Your mental health situation may be complex, which is why we will provide our clinical recommendation after the completion of your free screening. Our treatment team will figure out which program would be a good fit for you and develop a treatment plan designed to meet your specific concerns. If we are not able to address your needs, our representatives will do their best to provide you will additional resources or treatment options.
If someone you know needs high-level, intensive care, but is not willing to seek treatment, know that each county and state has its own process to have a person brought into treatment against their will. To get further information, it may be helpful to contact the health and human services department of the county you live in. Admissions staff at Rogers can discuss this with you if you have further questions. However, if you are concerned about someone's health or safety, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1 or take them to the nearest emergency room.
Rogers InHealth creates and distributes stories of understanding, hope and supportive action by people with mental illness and addiction, their friends and family, professionals and the general public. Sharing these stories of hope and healing can be motivating for someone who is unsure about seeking treatment.
At our residential and inpatient programs in Oconomowoc, Brown Deer and West Allis, Wisconsin, our admissions department is open 24 hours a day. At our outpatient locations in Wisconsin and across the country, an admissions staff members are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you are in need of immediate or emergency attention, please call 9-1-1, or go to the nearest emergency room.
Tour availability varies by location. At our outpatient settings, tours are provided by staff members. To respect the privacy and confidentiality of the people who are currently receiving treatment at Rogers, tours of specific residential treatment programs are given weekdays during designated times. Generally, residential tours are scheduled after you complete a screening and will be led by one of Rogers' community outreach staff.
Both intensive outpatient and partial hospital programs are offered in our outpatient centers, not in hospital settings. These centers offer comfortable spaces for group therapy, individual sessions, art therapy, experiential therapy and more. At the end of programming each day, you will return to your normal schedules with family and friends, at work or school. In our partial hospital programs, patients participate in programming, on average, 6 hours per day, 5 days per week. And our intensive outpatient programs offer treatment, on average, 3 hours per day, 5 days per week.
The names of levels of care vary across the country. At Rogers, inpatient care is our highest level of treatment, offered to individuals who are in need of emergent care and around-the-clock observation. Inpatient care is provided at our hospital locations, and patients stay until they reach stable condition and are able to continue programming in lower levels of treatment.
Residential care is may be the best option for those who are medically stable, but in need of high-level, intensive treatment, away from the triggers of life. It is often the next step following inpatient treatment. Patients live at one of our home-like residential centers 24/7, typically for 30 to 60 days.
Because every plan has its own rules for coverage, you should contact your insurance carrier to see if you need pre-approval before scheduling your admission. Please visit the insurance coverage page for more information.
Your length of stay depends on which treatment program we’re admitting you to, as well as your past history, current symptoms, support systems, resources and risk factors. We estimate the average length of stay to be 3 to 12 days for inpatient hospitalization, 30 to 60 days for residential treatment, and 3 to 7 weeks for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. These estimates can vary based on individual needs and insurance coverage.
Please visit the What to Bring page for program-specific information about what to wear and what to pack, as well as what items aren’t allowed on campus.
You should plan on the entire admissions process taking several hours. When you, or you and your child, arrive at Rogers, please check in with a receptionist at the front desk. Simply say your name and state that you are here for an admission. An intake specialist will greet you and take you to a private office to complete the rest of the admission paperwork. To make sure we have the most current clinical information, the intake specialist may ask you additional questions about your symptoms.
The intake specialist may need to contact your insurance carrier for authorization, if they have not already received pre-authorization. Getting authorization can take from 30 minutes to 72 hours, depending on how quickly the insurance carrier identifies a representative to review your case. We do offer an option to sign a form for admission acknowledging a pending authorization. While we cannot control the health plan’s process for authorization, our intake staff members work diligently to get a response as soon as possible. Please visit the insurance coverage page for more information.
The intake specialist will explain your admitting paperwork to you and get your signature on the required forms. He or she will then notify the program staff of your arrival, escort you to your program and introduce you to the staff members who begin your program orientation.
Staff members and your treatment team will discuss your treatment only with those you or guardian have specifically authorized. Your admission is confidential, and only those you want to know will know you are here. We will not acknowledge your presence here or provide any information about your treatment without your consent.
In some programs, you and your parents or guardian will be given the opportunity to create an approved call list, identifying individuals you may speak with during your treatment. If anyone other than those on the call list contacts Rogers to speak to you, staff will maintain complete confidentiality.
If you are receiving inpatient care and have established an approved caller list, you will give a PIN or access code to those on the list, and they must provide it when they call. You may change your mind about who is and is not on your approved call list at any time during your hospital stay (with parent or guardian permission for minors).
Children, family members and friends, are allowed to visit those in residential and inpatient care programs. All visitors must be approved by the patient and treatment team and have the PIN or access code upon arrival. Children visiting or attending a scheduled family session must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
You may request a discharge at any time, but we advise that any decisions about discharge be made collaboratively with the treatment team, so a thoughtful aftercare plan can be developed and arranged. If you are receiving treatment due to a court order, a doctor’s order to discharge is required before you can leave. In situations involving imminent concerns for your safety, further evaluation may be necessary.
To ensure effective communication among you, your family members, companions who have limited English proficiency or are deaf or hard of hearing, we will work with you to assess and determine the level of services best suited for your circumstances.
We have a general list of items you or your loved one will need during the treatment stay.
