Alaska Behavioral Health provides mental health residential treatment for adults with acute mental health needs who have not responded to outpatient treatment, have needs that cannot be met in a less-restrictive setting, or would benefit from further treatment following inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.
Adult mental health residential treatment provides medication services and individual and group services with a focus on skill development including communication, problem solving, and conflict resolution; life and social skills to restore functioning; and self-regulation, anger management, and other mood management skills.
Services are provided by an interdisciplinary treatment team in a therapeutically structured, supervised environment 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Members of the treatment team include clinicians, clinical associates, vocational specialists, peer support specialists, nurses, psychiatric nurse practitioners, a primary care physician, and a psychiatrist.
