Echelon Care's Residential Program offers a safe, therapeutic environment for youth to work on their life challenges.
This environment remains staffed with professionals who are there 24/7 to provide guidance and assistance, with behavioral and emotional concerns. It is a structured environment that places emphasis on accountability, structure, and age-appropriate behavior.
Many times, a youth's issues have escalated beyond what typical household can manage. In these instances, Echelon Care can offer a solution that is beneficial to both the child and the household. While the child is within our Residential Program, the parent(s), and or legal guardian(s) have the opportunity to interact with the child and add input as to what their expectations are, upon the return of the youth to their household.
Psychotherapy is the process where mental health distresses and disorders are assessed, prevented, evaluated, and treated. There are a variety of techniques that can be utilized to deal with the problem(s) that brought you to therapy. These services are generally unlike any services you may receive from a physician in that they require your active participation and cooperation.
Medication management is utilized as a supplement to psychotherapy and other mental health services. Our healthcare practitioners will work with our consumers to achieve the most optimal therapeutic levels to stabilize their medical and mental health conditions. Best results are seen when there is ongoing communication between the consumer and their provider. It is important to discuss all related medical conditions and medications with our consumers at every visit. If there are side effects from the medications, please disclose that information to the provider.
These services usually start with an evaluation. During the evaluation by the attending medical provider, decisions will be made as to whether you will benefit from medication management and whether you desire to make a commitment to begin the medication treatment program. By the end of the evaluation, we will offer you an initial impression of what medications may be beneficial, as well as any side effects that you could possible encounter. If you decide to seek services for medication management, a visit will be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon time.
