Programs & Services Four Stage Program

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 follows:


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.


Admission Interview
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.


Clinical Services
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 process.

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.

Below is more information on some common disorders we treat at The Stadter Center.


Depressive Disorder/Depression:
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.


Bipolar Disorder:
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 overly "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” and “lows.”


Anxiety Disorder:
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.
