DIRECTION BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ASSOCIATES
Direction is a diverse team of clinicians dedicated to bringing excellent, innovative mental health care to adolescents.
Since 2008, we have served over 3000 adolescents and their families.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program provide an alternative, intermediate level of care. Many adolescents have more acute needs than can be met on an traditional outpatient basis, but do not require inpatient hospitalization. Direction’s programming is designed to meet those needs.
Direction takes a generalist approach. There are no “exclusionary” diagnoses, and, from our point of view, no problem is too big or too small. We have successfully treated adolescents with virtually every type of mental health and substance abuse problem you can imagine.
AS OF OCTOBER 5, 2020, DIRECTION WILL BE OFFERING HYBRID PROGRAM SERVICES
For six months, our Intensive Outpatient Program has been offered exclusively in a Telehealth, online format. We are pleased that we have been able to continue to offer our services to area adolescents. In addition, we have been able to work with adolescents who live father away and normally wouldn't be able to make it to our in-person program.
Nevertheless, there have been some challenges. Kids are increasingly experiencing "Zoom Fatigue" from being online most of the day, and are increasingly restless at home, which makes them more difficult to engage in an online format. In addition, there is simply no substitute for in-person therapy services -- something is always "lost in translation" over the Internet.
We are happy to announce that we are now offering hybrid services. Three days per week, we will be offering in-person, on-site services (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Three days per week, we will continue to offer virtual services (Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday -- Friday we will offer both in-person and virtual services).
We have updated our in-person services to adapt them to the new demands brought upon all of us by the pandemic, so we can safely work with kids in-person. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, we will not presently be able to offer one-way transportation to the program, and kids will need to be brought to and from our site if they cannot drive themselves.
Kids are now able to participate online, in-person, or a combination of both for our Intensive Outpatient Program.
Feel free to contact our office for more details.
