What a Typical Day Looks Like While in Treatment

While at NWTHS Behavioral Health, you will learn how reactions affect you and your family, loved ones and co-workers. Treatment is individualized and helps you identify triggering events, understand reactive behaviors, control self-blame and guilt and develop skills to recognize and manage behaviors and impulses. A multi-disciplinary team will help you establish treatments such as outcomes-based therapy.

Your days are filled with services that are designed to help you meet your recovery goals. While we maintain a structured treatment setting, your day consists of a balance of a variety of evidenced-based treatment services with time for breaks and self-reflection.

A multi-disciplinary treatment team develops a plan tailored to the needs of each individual and may include:

  • Recognizing trauma and how to identify symptoms
  • Trauma processing and identifying coping skills
  • Group, family and individual therapy
  • Activity groups
  • Substance abuse rehabilitation or dual diagnosis education
  • Nursing groups focused on medication education, health and hygiene
  • Relaxation groups
  • Exercise and physical activities

NWTHS Behavioral Health is proud to be part of the Patriot Support Programs, a network of facilities utilizing best practices to effectively treat military service members and veterans. Thank you for your service!
