Traditional diagnostic evaluations, medication management, psychotherapy, social clubs, psycho-education and therapeutic recreation activities are critical standards of care. Although these services are necessary, they are often not sufficient ingredients to improve quality of life. In addition to these traditional treatment modalities, the patients participate in a variety of individual and group therapies that emphasize motivation, education, and vocational training.
At the onset of treatment, a psychiatrist, psychologist, vocational counselor and other clinicians collaborate to complete a comprehensive holistic assessment of the patients' strengths and weaknesses. This evaluation may include a diagnostic assessment, a neuropsychological assessment and a vocational skills evaluation. In addition, patients are referred for neurological, psychopharmacological and physical evaluations, so that the initial assessment is completed in the most comprehensive manner. These evaluations provide a platform for the development of individual treatment plans.

The staff defines treatment goals and coordinate the rehabilitation activities with the patients’ psychopharmacological treatments. In addition, information is gathered from the patients’ family to support the initial evaluation and assess both the needs of the family as well as the patients, to promote a coordinated approach to rehabilitation. The patients’ families are encouraged to maintain an active and ongoing involvement in the treatment, either through attendance at the Family Support Group or through family consultations with the Program's staff.
