WHEN SHOULD WE SEND A PATIENT TO YOU FOR HELP?
Every situation can be based on a variety of reasons; some patients may only have mild behavioral or mental health issues they are dealing with, while others could be quite severe. We are proud to offer support at all different levels that might be needed. Some of the more common reasons patients are sent to us is for severe depression, anxiety, thoughts of self-harm, auditory or visual hallucinations or racing thoughts.
WHAT ARE VISITING HOURS FOR THOSE IN INPATIENT PROGRAMS?
Every unit has set visiting hours and times, and those who are approved and designated to visit will receive this information from the patient’s therapist. We will contact potential approved visitors with a time and date where they will be able to see the patient. We do not allow more than 2 visitors at a time and strongly discourage bringing children.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED HELP?
While there is no specific answer to that question, the usual rule of thumb to determining if one needs help is when the individual is already believing they need help. If you are asking yourself these questions, and are aware and are considering receiving help, then it would likely be a great time to reach out. Contact us at 970-461-5061 for a free and confidential assessment.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF FAMILY THERAPY AT CLEAR VIEW?
Family therapy is utilized when a patient is still residing with their family, or have very close ties. The goal with every program therapist who engages in family therapy with the patient is to help develop positive family communication, achieve designated goals and help to deal with coping mechanisms relating to family issues.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND IS DISCHARGED?
A follow-up appointment is scheduled with a provider in the patient’s community, and we share with them their treatment plan, a discharge summary and anything related to potential new medications.
WHAT IF MY FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND DOESN’T BELIEVE THEY NEED HELP?
This can be a delicate question to answer. The most important aspect is to help encourage your friend or family member and help support them during their time of need. Offer to call us together, or even bring them in for a free assessment. Our environment is very inviting, friendly and open, which can make all the difference in a patient’s comfort level. If you believe your loved one is in a potential life-threatening situation, please call 911 immediately.
HOW DOES IT WORK FOR VISITING HOURS ON THE INPATIENT UNIT?
Every hospital or medical facility requires specific visiting hours in order to help keep stability and order for patients. We do not allow more than 2 visitors at a time, and those on the approved list will be notified in advance of the date and time allotted for their visit.
HOW DO YOU SERVE DIFFERENT POPULATIONS IN ONE PLACE?
Our team understands the diverse groups of people we serve come with special therapeutic considerations. The structure of our hospital’s programs ensures all the patients receive age-appropriate treatment related to individual therapy, group therapy, recreational therapy and medication management. Our programming is delivered separately between our seniors, adults and adolescent age groups.
