Comprehensive Programming

Realizing that each individual who is entrusted into our care has his or her own skill sets, needs, strengths, and concerns, we ensure that all courses of care are fully customized so that each patient can obtain the well-rounded treatment that is needed and deserved.

To best determine what the most appropriate plan of care should be, all patients are provided with a thorough evaluation in order to pinpoint the immediate needs and concerns that should be managed during his or her time in treatment. When this evaluation takes place, it will also be decided whether or not engaging in the inpatient treatment that we offer here at Riverwoods will be of benefit to the individual. If it is decided that another level of care would be better suited for him or her, appropriate referrals will be made.
