1

Upon your arrival at Honey Lake Clinic, a member of our nursing staff will welcome you and search your belongings to make sure that no contraband or unsafe items enter the campus. You will then check into your room, where you will begin the intake process.

2

On your first day, depending on the time of your arrival, you will be introduced to your primary therapist, who will be a licensed PhD or Master’s level psychotherapist. He or she will continue your comprehensive behavioral health assessment.

3

Within 24 hours, your psychiatrist will complete the psychiatric portion of your assessment and collaborate with your treatment team to determine your individualized treatment plan. This will include therapy and, if needed, further medical tests or medications.

4

You will have three individual sessions with your primary therapist each week. While exploring the underlying issues that are contributing to your struggle, your therapist will equip you with skills to manage your decisions in a more healthy and fulfilling way.

5

In addition, we will schedule weekly follow-up appointments with your psychiatrist. He or she will assess if medications would be beneficial in relieving some of your symptoms while you continue to work on your deeper issues and struggles.

6

A licensed therapist will lead daily process groups, where you will be equipped with practical tools and resources to apply all the psychological principles that you learn at Honey Lake Clinic to your specific life struggles and situations.

7

Moreover, each patient at Honey Lake Clinic attends daily psychoeducation groups that are centered around understanding and applying our core therapeutic method, the SPEARS decision-making method, to help him or her become a better decision-maker.

Phases of Treatment at Honey Lake Clinic

Treatment at Honey Lake Clinic is conceptualized and structured into three phases.

Assessment

Assessment

A comprehensive bio-psycho-spiritual evaluation is conducted to assess each patient’s physical, medical, psychiatric, psychological, emotional, social, familial, occupational, and spiritual resources, needs, and issues.

Treatment

Treatment

The assessment data is compiled and an individualized master treatment plan is formulated. The patient and his or her family members are oriented to the treatment goals and to their roles in accomplishing those objectives.

Transition

Transition

Effective aftercare planning is prioritized to ensure a fluid continuity of care after discharge. Patients are educated about preventing the recurrence of their condition and pursuing resources to facilitate growth.
