Rehabilitative services provide long-term residential treatment, counseling, support and rehabilitation to promote recovery and our client’s successful return to the community. This level of care primarily serves those with serious substance use disorders or long-term, severe mental illnesses and offers 24-hour care.
The Rehabilitation Process
Rehabilitative clients have access to Meridian’s comprehensive care through a full range of inpatient and partial-hospitalization services and programs.
Partial hospitalization provides intensive treatment 20 hours per week for men and women with addictions or co-occurring addictions and mental illness. Patients learn the disease concept of addictions, relapse-prevention and to address family and social issues. An emphasis is placed on utilizing group therapy, medication assistance and community resources needed to ensure successful re-integration into the community.
Clients are strongly encouraged to transition from full inpatient and partial hospitalization care into one of our outpatient treatment programs upon completion of rehabilitative care.
