Psychiatric services at Westbrook Health Services specializes in diagnosing and treating an array of behavioral, emotional, and mental health disorders through the prescription of specialty medications. We collaborate with our substance use division to help treat various substance use disorders with our Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program. We facilitate follow-up appointments for individuals being discharged from surrounding hospitals who need continued psychiatric care. We also provide telepsychiatry services to our satellite offices in other counties. This allows clients access to quality psychiatric care without having to travel far from home.
INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY, AND GROUP THERAPY
Every behavioral health challenge is different and requires a unique approach to best meet your needs. Westbrook staff will work with you and your family to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include Individual, Family and Group Therapy. For additional information about specific programs phone 304-485-1721 today.
INPATIENT CRISIS STABILIZATION
Managing life with a mental illness and/or substance use problem can be challenging. Therapy and medication management can help, but sometimes stressors become overwhelming. A relapse to substance use can occur. Hallucinations may become unmanageable, or thoughts of hurting oneself or others can take over. When troubling thoughts and impulses become overwhelming, it's important to know that there is somewhere to turn for help. At Westbrook Health Services, there is an alternative to hospitalization. The inpatient crisis stabilization program provides a supportive, nurturing environment where recovery is possible. With proper treatment, there is hope and help for people experiencing serious life stressors.
