Programs & Services
Before any patient begins our treatment program, it
is necessary to have them go through a process in order
to better understand their needs. The process is as
Evaluation for Admission
Initial contact with the patient and/or patient’s
family is facilitated through the Access Coordinator
who is responsible for all potential admissions. An evaluation
is completed in coordination with the physician to determine
appropriate level of care.
An admission interview is completed to identify what
specifically is occurring. The interview contains a
six-page form that touches on items such as financial
responsibility, risk factors, mental health status,
family medical and psychiatric history, drug and/or
alcohol usage, and more.
Orientation to Program
Both the individual receiving treatment and family members
receive orientation to the Program.
Review of Policies, Structures and Expectations
To ensure the patient has a solid understanding of the
program a review of policies, structures and expectations
will take place.
Tour of Facility and Room Assignment
A facility tour will help patients get aquainted with
the new surroundings and see where they will be staying.
The initial day of treatment will follow the admission
process with a comprehensive orientation to programming
and the facility. Medications will likely, but not always,
begin on day one. This may change dependent upon the
individual’s response to the medication prescribed,
as well as the findings in the evaluation/assessment
The patient will begin participation in various evaluations
and the integration into “Primary” group.
Primary group is utilized to define personal issues
and gain insight into one’s self. It continues
throughout all stages of treatment, and is a relevant
aspect of the Family Program, which is the core of
the treatment at The Stadter Center.
At The Stadter Center, we provide a four
stage treatment program that is centered around the Family Program
as its core.

Below is more information on some common
disorders we treat at The Stadter Center.
This disorder is not just temporary or situational
sadness, but a persistent and pervasive feeling of
sadness or hopelessness that is often associated with
weight loss (or gain), sleep disturbances, physical
symptoms, disturbances of sexual function and feelings
of guilt or self-blame, worthlessness, fatigue, loss
of interest in life and/or usual activities.
Also known as manic-depressive illness, Bipolar is
a mental illness involving episodes of serious mania
and depression. The person's mood usually swings from
"high" (excessive spending, hypersexuality,
rapid speech) and irritable to “low” (sad,
hopeless, suicidal thoughts) and then back again, with
periods of normal mood in between. The person can experience
behavioral difficulties as consequences of “highs”
This is an illness that produces an intense, often unrealistic
and excessive state of apprehension and fear. This may
or may not occur during, or in anticipation of, a specific
situation, and may be accompanied by a rise in blood
pressure, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, nausea,
and other signs of agitation or discomfort.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):
A debilitating condition that often follows a terrifying
physical or emotional event causing the person who survived
the event to have persistent, frightening thoughts and
memories, or flashbacks, of the ordeal. Persons with
PTSD often feel chronically, emotionally numb.
