What a Typical Day Looks Like While in Treatment

While at Northwest Behavioral Health, your days are filled with services that are designed to help you meet your recovery goals.

Following this brief, intensive inpatient treatment period, individuals may continue in our mental health partial hospitalization treatment or intensive outpatient treatment programs overseen by a psychiatrist/psychiatric nurse practitioner and therapist.

People battling mental illness can be helped by being observant of warning signs. Experts state that early mental health support can help a patient before problems interfere with other developmental needs. By detecting issues in the earlier phases and seeking medical attention early, patients have an easier road of recovery before symptoms spin out of control.

Here are a few early signs of what to watch for that may lead to the necessity of a structured program that inpatient care provides:

  • A sudden withdrawal or loss of interest in activities
  • Neglect of personal appearance
  • Drastic changes in personality, eating or sleep patterns
  • General lethargy or lack of energy or difficulty concentrating
  • Violent actions, rebellion or running away
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Headaches or stomach aches
  • Loss of ability to tolerate praise or rewards
