Meier Clinics partners with Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco to create a new Christian track for their geriatric inpatient program.

Frisco, TX (PRWEB) November 02, 2015

Meier Clinics and Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco are delighted to announce their partnership in offering a faith-based program at Haven. The Meier Clinics, bringing almost 40 years of Christian outpatient behavioral healthcare experience, will adapt their services to assist Haven with a Christian track for their inpatient services. The Meier Faith-Based Program at Haven will be based on Dr. Meier’s Journey to Joy workbook, which fosters an environment of healing as participants engage in learning about themselves, improving communication, healing emotions, resolving anger, correcting self-talk and establishing godly choices in a Christ-centered environment.

Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco is a 36-bed, state-of-the-art facility specifically designed to meet the unique behavioral health needs of senior adults. Haven’s team of highly educated physicians and clinical staff are trained to assess, diagnose and treat mental health issues that are even more complex in aging adults.

Many behavioral health programs treat all age patient populations in the same location. Haven believes that seniors have more complex treatment needs than younger patients. Treatment outcomes are better when seniors receive separate, specialized geriatric care in an environment with individuals with similar experiences and needs as their own. Haven has created an environment that takes into consideration changes associated with normal aging: lighting, choice of colors, use of hand rails and flooring help to make the environment safe and comfortable for senior adults. In addition, our unit layout provides a number of options for our patients to be engaged in activities without being overly stimulated due to noise.

Haven’s goal is to diagnose and treat senior adult patients in a healing environment with a nurturing approach and to obtain the best treatment plan possible with as little use of medication management as possible. Working with patients, family, physicians and staff, an interdisciplinary treatment plan is developed on an individual patient basis.

Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco is located at 5680 Frisco Square Boulevard, Suite 3000, Frisco, TX 75034, adjacent to Forest Park Medical Center of Frisco. Haven provides inpatient psychiatric stabilization and treatment to senior adults experiencing acute symptoms of depression, anxiety, mood swings or psychosis.
