HFC provides a wide range of outpatient services and stresses providing care in the least restrictive setting possible. Each individual’s treatment plan is carefully crafted after the initial assessment and then modified accordingly during the treatment process.
HFC’s adult substance abuse and adolescent substance abuse programs help the individual achieve abstinence, successful recovery and a return to normal life. Individuals come to us frequently – as much as five times per week - for very focused services. In these sessions, highly effective and clinically proven individual, group, family and educational therapies are all integrated within the context of a twelve-step model of recovery.
Our substance abuse programs allow the individual to learn and practice recovery skills in their daily life. A critical component of the program is the ability for patients to bring into the treatment process challenging problems from work, school or home and to learn how to overcome them while remaining abstinent.
HFC’s adult psychiatric and adolescent psychiatric programs use a short-term acute care model to help speed the patients towards successful recovery. The programs offer a full range of psychiatric services, including psychiatric evaluation, medication monitoring, group therapy, family therapy, individual therapy and appropriate nursing care within structured partial day and intensive outpatient programs. Participants leave our programs feeling restored, with their acute symptoms resolved. In addition, they have learned skills to more effectively manage future problems and are in a position to better benefit from ongoing individual and family counseling.
Dually diagnosed individuals, those with both substance abuse and psychiatric illness, are successfully treated in all HFC programs. In each instance, the treating psychiatrist and the rest of the multi-disciplinary team tailors the treatment methods to insure that both problems are fully addressed.
“Our services are designed for individuals with significant emotional or substance abuse problems who want to change the course of their lives.”
“All services are designed to create minimal disruption to an individual’s work, school and family life. Depending on the population, treatment is provided during the day, after-school or in the evening.”
“Treatment is highly individualized: level of care is determined by clinical need and not any pre-arranged program structure.”
