Wind of Change is designed to restore the mind, body, and soul of the young adult woman, through innovative therapeutic approaches and trauma-informed therapeutic care. Wind of Change’s entire behavioral health program is centered on God and how each girl can foster a greater relationship with Him. And we work tirelessly to work with you and your loved ones to achieve your personal treatment goals with you and your loved ones.
Personal Evaluation & Treatment
After an initial complete evaluation, your treatment plan will be developed with your involvement, taking into consideration your unique issues, diagnoses, past treatment history, and personal goals for treatment. We (you and your therapist) will evaluate your current coping skills, intellectual capabilities, personality traits, natural gifts and talents, and your response to past treatments.
First-Class Care from Experienced Staff
Your safety, security, and treatment are taken seriously at Wind of Change. Our highly trained and specialized staff will be with you every step of the way during your journey to help you achieve your personal treatment goals. We specialize in treating trauma, sexual abuse, adoption issues, divorce issues, borderline personality disorder, behavioral issues, depression, anger, failure to launch, and suicidal patients.
Applying Intense Therapy That Works
It takes on average 30 days to change a bad habit and about 90 days or more of intense therapy with the same treatment team. You will start at residential treatment and then as you progress to move to partial hospitalization as you progress through treatment. Eventually, transition to intense outpatient treatment as you prepare for discharge, all with your same treatment team. The transition through these levels of care with the continuity of care with the same treatment team is proven to assist you in meeting your personal goals. The benefit to you is that you don’t have to start with a whole new treatment team each time you achieve your treatment goals. Wind of Change has found that young women treated in the “revolving door” of different treatment teams quickly fall back into old behaviors once they return home. This is generally for two reasons; first, they go back as they develop a trusting relationship with a whole new treatment team as they progress toward discharge goals, and second, girls don’t know how to adapt their newfound life skills to their old environments.
We Are Accredited by The Joint Commission
Wind of Change is accredited by The Joint Commission. This means that we have met the requirements and the standards of quality, performance, and patient care set forth by this organization. The Joint Commission’s accreditation is another piece of information to use in selecting a therapeutic program.
The Joint Commission is a non-profit organization that has been accrediting therapeutic programs for more than 50 years. It sets standards by which healthcare organizations can be measured. Because of their expertise and high standards, The Joint Commission is a leader in the quality field. The accreditation of a facility is a nationwide seal of approval that indicates that an organization meets high-performance standards.
How does a therapeutic facility become accredited by The Joint Commission?
Accreditation by The Joint Commission is voluntary. A healthcare facility must request that its organization be evaluated. The process for accreditation includes:
- Staff and patient interviews;
- Inspection of facility documents, the process of care;
- Assessment of patient safety, culture, and teamwork;
- Review of the physical facility; and,
- Observation of the daily operations of the therapists, and behavioral healthcare staff, including patient care.
