Meadhaven Outpatient Center, located at 4101-C Wall Street in Montgomery, offers two distinct outpatient services for adults: a psychiatric partial hospitalization program and an addictive disease program.
Addictive Disease Outpatient Program
The Meadhaven Addictive Disease Outpatient Program promotes an atmosphere of success and confidence that offers encouragement to those seeking help with alcohol and/or drug dependency. Patients are treated with dignity in an environment that respects privacy. From their first day, patients begin to see there is hope and that lasting recovery is possible for them and their families.
The goal at Meadhaven is to provide effective therapy to men and women desiring to recover from alcoholism/drug addiction and to give them the help they need to maintain normal, productive lives free from chemical dependency.
Located at the Meadhaven Outpatient Center at 4101-C Wall Street in Montgomery, the comprehensive outpatient program is designed to deal with the specific problems of each individual. Treatment is tailored to the particular plans, goals and needs of the patient and is based on four very important concepts:
- Alcohol/drug addiction is a primary, progressive and life-long disease.
- As a disease, alcohol/drug addiction is a condition that requires treatment.
- Both the alcoholic/addict and family members suffer physically, mentally and spiritually.
- Alcoholism/addiction is a family disease, and recovery must be a family process.
The program offers the following services for adults 18 and older:
- Daily individual and group therapy
- Family involvement
- Weekly drug tests during program
- Two years of continuing aftercare upon discharge from the program
The patient's psychiatrist oversees the treatment process in conjunction with certified alcohol and drug counselors and other treatment specialists.
Detoxification if necessary is available on a designated medical unit at Baptist Medical Center South prior to admission to the outpatient program. Calls are welcome from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and are handled with strict confidence. For more information, please call (334) 286-3535, or in the case of an emergency after hours, please call (334) 286-3116.
Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization Program
Many people experience depression, anxiety, stress or other emotional problems but do not require 24-hour hospital care. Others may be involved in outpatient counseling but have experienced little improvement in symptoms. Still others have completed inpatient hospitalization but are still in need of continuing support and daily counseling services. Partial Hospitalization may be the answer for these patients.
The Meadhaven Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization Program is located at the Meadhaven Outpatient Center at 4101-C Wall Street in Montgomery. The program provides innovative psychiatric services for adults who are able to return home each day. The goal at Meadhaven is to help each patient reach maximum potential for an independent lifestyle.
Partial Hospitalization is appropriate for adult patients who have a serious mental illness and require a structured program of therapy for several hours daily to attain specific treatment goals. It is not appropriate for those patients whose psychiatric illness is so severe that they cannot be maintained in the community and thus requires inpatient care.
Meadhaven provides a caring, supportive environment where adult patients can focus on recovery. The Partial Hospitalization Program rebuilds emotional foundations for patients and helps guide them toward more fulfilling lives. The following services are provided:
- Diagnostic assessment
- Medication management
- Family involvement
- Group psychotherapy
- Daily living skills enhancement
- Meals and snacks
- Transportation (by special arrangement)
A psychiatrist leads the multidisciplinary treatment team that also consists of a therapist and nurse. All work together to create an individualized treatment program for the patient.
Program hours are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
