Individual Treatment Plan

Individual Treatment Plan

It is imperative that the Individual Treatment Plans for young adult women are individualized to meet the specific needs of each Client. No clients’ issues are the same. Each of the struggling young women who enter our residential treatment program comes from a diverse background. Each one is dealing with different challenges. Each has her own hopes and dreams she wants one day to fulfill. These are the reasons that Wind of Change creates an Individual Treatment Plan for every young lady who comes into our care.

Residential Treatment Center Offers Individualized Treatment Plans

After an initial complete evaluation, you or your loved ones’ individual treatment plan will be developed, taking into consideration her unique issues, her particular diagnoses, her ability to process information, assessing current coping skills, intellectual capabilities, personality traits, natural gifts, and talents and her response to past treatments. You or your loved one will also have the opportunity to continue your education while at our inpatient mental health facility for young adult women. Based on her physical condition and discharge goals, we’ll create a list of activities, responsibilities, spiritual exercises, and fellowship opportunities that are best suited to your unique needs. This agenda will work to improve virtues and positive characteristics while reducing the occurrence of negative behaviors and thought processes that are destructive to your life.  

Our Therapeutic Approaches Encourages Patients to Value and Engage in Their Treatment

When you or your loved one experiences therapy – rather than just talking about it – they gain ground more quickly and value her therapy. Because Wind of Change is not an institution, but rather a family-style, all-adult women’s residential treatment program, we are 100% hands-on. While discussions are a vital part of the treatment process, progress only comes once you or your loved one begin to put into action those things they have recently learned about. You will learn new skills in therapy such as effective coping skills, self-soothing skills, emotional regulation, mindfulness, distress tolerance skills, communication skills, life skills, anger control, and impulse control, and will be expected to practice these new skills throughout the day in her interactions with others, role-playing, and in therapy.

Medication Management

Wind of Change recommends that if your daughter has not had Genetic Testing done to help guide psychiatric medications, we perform a Genecept Assay® on admission. Up to half of all patients respond negatively to psychiatric medications that they are prescribed. That’s because everyone’s body is different, and how your body responds to a given medication is influenced by your genetic makeup or your daughter’s individual DNA. The Genecept Assay® looks at key genes in your daughter’s body that affect how it responds to medications. This can help the psychiatrist understand if a drug may work for her before she even tries it. With the information from Genecept Assay ® and her history, the psychiatrist can find the right treatments so she can feel better faster. Upon being admitted to Wind of Change residential treatment center, your daughter will also have a complete initial psychiatric evaluation. Our first course of action is to assess the effectiveness of your daughter’s current medication regimen or need for medications and to make any changes or adjustments as needed. Many struggling young adult women come to us with behavioral and emotional issues for which they take medication. With medications being managed by a licensed psychiatrist and/or psychiatric nurse practitioner as well as registered nurses, we are fully equipped to manage prescription drugs, evaluate progress, and make changes as needed while monitoring for adverse drug reactions. Once struggling young adult women are stabilized on the minimal amount of medications needed to manage behaviors and emotions, while they are learning to identify, understand, and manage the core issues that have put them into inpatient residential treatment, they are no longer as anxious, impulsive, depressed, angry and suicidal. They feel as though they are making progress and accomplishing goals. That’s because they are! At Wind of Change, we are constantly monitoring, assessing, evaluating, and implementing improvements regarding you or your loved ones’ care. What’s more, we offer emotional and spiritual assistance for you and your family members so that everyone can begin to heal.
