Canyon Ridge Hospital’s inpatient care operates on a therapeutic community model. This model emphasizes the need for each individual to take responsibility for their own behavior and to accept the positive and negative consequences of their choices.
The psychiatrist will supervise each patient’s care and see the patient in individual sessions 7 days per week. Individual sessions with a therapist may be arranged, in addition to the group therapy treatment, if the patient and treatment team determine that there would be an added therapeutic benefit. The patient’s case manager will assist with selecting a suitable outpatient therapist or program upon discharge. Many patients will receive a recommendation to the "Next Step" in our outpatient Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for continued follow up care, further therapy and stabilization.
A case manager will be assigned to each patient to manage their case throughout the patient’s hospitalization. The case manager will work closely with the patient and the treatment team to coordinate care with doctors, therapist and the patient’s families. The treatment teams consist of a psychiatrist, case managers, therapists and nurses. The treatment team is an integral part in facilitating patients’ care, discussing the best treatment options for the patient and creating objectives for the patient’s treatment plan. Case managers will assist in all follow up needs and discharge planning.
All patients will attend daily group therapy in coordination with each individual treatment plan. Patients will be assigned to a therapy group based on clinical need and the treatment team’s recommendations. Types of group include process groups, goals groups, activity groups and training and education groups. A skilled group therapist will utilize a variety of treatment methods that are designed to address key issues while stabilizing symptoms in a time-effective manner. This would include techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and short-term psychodynamic therapy. Groups will address issues of depression, anger management, loss interpersonal relationships and addiction. Patients will also be learning coping skills, assertion skills, personal self awareness and psychoeducation to assist their specific areas of need.
A structured family meeting will be arranged if the patient and treatment team determine that a family meeting would have therapeutic benefit.
