Seafield Services Outpatient Program consists of a thorough evaluation.
The Evaluation Process begins with an assessment and initial screening to determine if the individual is appropriate for the level of care provided at a Seafield facility. When a person is determined to be appropriate for care, he or she will be advised of assessment findings and recommendations for admissions will be made. The admissions process will begin, with the intention of placing the person into treatment within twenty-four hours.
The Admission Process entails a thorough biopsychosocial history performed by a qualified healthcare professional. A nursing assessment is conducted by a RN or NP, with further evaluation completed by the physician or nurse practitioner, as needed. Mental status and psychiatric evaluations are conducted by a staff psychiatrist when indicated.
All admissions are made with the final approval of the physician. At the time of the admission:
- all necessary releases are obtained;
- the referral source is contacted;
- the person admitted will be assigned a case manager;
- a formal treatment plan is developed with the client within the first ten (10) days of treatment.
Treatment plans have the input of the clinical director, physician and other appropriate staff members.
Most insurance accepted. When needed self-pay (sliding scale) arrangements can be made.
The Intensive Program component meets for two to three hours per session up to five (5) times per week. Frequency and duration will be determined by the treatment team (Seafield Clinical staff and the referring agency). During the intensive component, concrete, specific and measurable goals and objectives are identified and monitored. Family members are always encouraged to become involved in their loved ones treatment. Family Bridge Groups and/or family sessions are available to help the entire family system benefit from every aspect of the recovery process. In addition to group process, each person will receive individual counseling sessions. Upon completion of the Intensive Level of Care Component, or by recommendation, the client will be transferred to another level of care that will best address his/her individual needs.
The Clinic Level component will last for the remainder of the client's treatment. Each group meets for 60 minutes. Frequency and duration is based on individual needs. The program is designed to work on issues of early recovery, stabilize a sober support system and enhance the client's acceptance of sober lifestyle.
