Welcome to Retreat Doctors' Hospital Center for Emotional Growth! The program recognizes mental and emotional health as an integral part of overall health. At Retreat, we use evidence-based practices to provide engaging treatments and foster positive outcomes.
Treatment at Retreat Doctors' Hospital Center for Emotional Growth is multi-faceted. Our treatment team consists of psychiatrists, registered nurses, case management personnel, activities therapists, and mental health technicians. We provide short-term term intensive mental health treatment for adults in crisis. Our treatment program consists of a variety of group and individual services including but not limited to relaxation techniques, medication management, management of acute symptoms, safety management, and activity therapies.
Our program is appropriate for those struggling with:
Major Depression & Mood Disorder
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depression, major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and depression may make you feel as if life isn't worth living.
People with mood swings experience an abrupt and apparently unaccountable change of mood.
Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder marked by alternating periods of elation and depression.
Anger management is the process of learning to recognize signs that you’re becoming angry, and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a positive way. Anger management doesn’t try to keep you from feeling anger or encourage you to hold it in.
Self-Injury is also termed self-mutilation, self-harm or self-abuse. The behavior is defined as the deliberate, repetitive, impulsive, non-lethal harming of oneself.
Sexual Abuse and Assault
Sexual abuse is any sort of non-consensual sexual contact. Sexual abuse can happen to men or women of any age.
