Behavioral Health Programs
Residents at Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health move through a behavior management level system. Each phase identifies key tasks and clinical interventions designed to produce specific outcomes and to bring about healthy change.
Our programs and services provide an overall framework for treatment and are individualized to meet the unique needs and time constraints of each person.
Our staff utilizes the trauma-informed care model of treatment. We also utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Pathways Curriculum, as well as other therapeutic interventions as indicated. Treatment includes implementation of a professionally developed and supervised individual plan of care designed to achieve the patient’s discharge from the residential level of care.
We assess and provide therapy geared toward resolution of trauma-related issues. This is achieved through both individual and group processes that include education about trauma effects, identification of triggers, identification of patients’ needs in order to feel safe, teaching anxiety management skills, and identifying and practicing new coping skills.
Through our relapse prevention plan, we utilize family support, education and family sessions as an integral part of any patient’s recovery and are also provided as part of the treatment regime. All patients will be provided with referrals and follow up appointments prior to discharge.
