Typically, when a person’s life is disrupted by extreme states of thought or mood, they also experience social losses such as estrangement from family and friends, loss of work and school. Often these losses affect the person as much or more than the actual symptoms.
Our whole person model can help people recover, not only from disruptive psychiatric experiences, but also from these social losses. We focus on psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery, recreational and group experiences, vocational/educational counseling and best practice approaches to people with co-occurring addiction and psychiatric issues. We do all this in a way that allows our clients to take leadership roles in their own treatment, and rebuild purpose in their lives as members of a community.
People who experience extreme psychiatric states often need more than one provider. Many times their providers communicate only minimally with one another, or not at all. In these cases client’s concerns are treated as something isolated, unrelated to other parts of his or her life. At Ellenhorn we offer a team oriented, multidisciplinary approach individually tailored to our clients specific needs.
We bridge the gap between 24-hour psychiatric hospitals and outpatient care in office-based settings. Our team offers outreach services to clients in the community 24 hours a day. Most of our services are provided where a person lives not in a facility.
