Frequently Asked Questions
What is residential treatment and how do I know if it is right for me?
Residential Treatment is inpatient mental health treatment where the primary focus is on treating mental and behavioral health issues, providing 24-hour supervision by highly skilled professionals, with a focus on stabilizing a patient who is in crisis and maintaining the safety of patients and staff. Residential treatment differs from boarding schools where the primary focus is on providing environmental structure, and only some therapy along with academics.
At Wind of Change, we utilize a holistic approach and treat the entire person. Individualized treatment approaches for each client includes therapy for her MIND (mental health), BODY (physical health), and SOUL (spiritual health).
