Program Overview

North Memorial Health offers multiple programs to address your personalized care needs. We assess each customer to determine the appropriate care program which could include the following:

Partial Hospital Program

Comprehensive care in an outpatient setting is achieved by combining cutting-edge mind, body and medical evidenced-based psychotherapies and medication management. Movement therapy, psychoeducational groups, psychotherapy, and social work services are also included.

Customers with more serious and persistent mental illnesses received treatments based on cognitive and behavioral psychotherapies and medicine management. Additional focus is provided on social and life skills and care management.

Customers work intensely with professionals at North Memorial during the day and return home on evenings and weekends. The average stay ranges from 10-15 days, depending on individual needs and clinical recommendations.

Therapeutic Skills Program

The Therapeutic Skills program is an alternative to inpatient hospitalization for persons with SPMI, particularly thought disorders. Participants are those who would benefit from an intensive skills-based program, who can keep themselves safe, function in a group setting, and commit to daily attendance.

The program consists of:

  • Group Psychotherapy, with a focus on skill building (CBT, Mindfulness, Social Skills, Behavior Activation)
  • Psychiatry
  • Movement, music and art therapy
  • Psychoeducation
  • Individualized treatment plans
  • A supportive and caring environment

Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), also an alternative to, or transition from inpatient care, is designed for patients who need more than weekly psychotherapy for their mental health needs. Stress management, resilience, cognitive behavioral therapy, emotion regulation and mindfulness are topics that are covered in a group session environment.
