There are times when our emotions can dominate our existence. Those experiencing critical behavioral health symptoms such as psychosis and other severe and persistent mental illness may, at times, feel like they no longer have control over their feelings, thoughts and disposition which sometimes leads to the inability to relate to others.
Severe and persistent mental illness is a biological phenomenon in which symptoms can be fleeting in nature as a response to stress and physical changes in the brain. As a result, people with complex behavioral health issues may be able to function independently for an extended period of time but need extensive support to regain their sense of self. In these instances, intensive treatment can positively impact one’s quality of life.
Who Benefits from Adult Intensive Treatment?
Rolling Hills Hospital offers an intensive treatment program led by expert mental health professionals and focused on developing and implementing individualized treatment plans to help patients regain their lives. Our Intensive Treatment Program is designed for adults 18 and over with severe and persistent emotional, behavioral or psychological conditions that interfere with their ability to function on a daily basis. These patients often experience significant impairment in social, emotional and/or cognitive function, resulting in an inability to make choices based on consequences or organize thoughts in a comprehensible manner and they may also experience reality distortion. Because these complex symptoms are often chronic in nature, patients typically need intensive treatment to cope with life stressors.
Who may benefit from the Intensive Treatment Program at Rolling Hills Hospital? Individuals with the following diagnoses:
- Bipolar disorder
- Cognitive disorders
- Psychotic disorders
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (OCD)
