At Baptist Health Behavioral Services, our goal is simple. Our interdisciplinary team works with the patient, his/her family, and the physicians to provide therapeutic behavior support services and to aid each patient’s return to daily living with an ability to function at the maximum capacity possible.
Psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment is available in a state-of-the-art facility with the comprehensive services of the state’s largest healthcare system.
Family Support Program
Baptist Health Family Support Program is an intensive behavioral health program working specifically with young adults and teenagers who are engaging in high-risk behaviors that could lead to an unplanned pregnancy. We also help young teenagers who are currently pregnant or parenting and are experiencing emotional and behavioral issues. Our goal is to address the underlying issues to prevent an unplanned pregnancy or other consequences for poor decisions. For those facing an unplanned pregnancy or the results of raising a new baby our services are aimed at teaching effective coping and decision-making skills while encouraging healthy attachments and bonding with the baby.
This program serves those who have been diagnosed with or have symptoms of psychiatric or behavioral issues such as depression, anxiety, or bi-polar disorders that are currently impairing their daily functioning. Our comprehensive treatment team becomes actively involved and engaged with the patient and their support system. The goal is to identify the needs to help these young women, address psychiatric issues, manage family dynamics, and teach appropriate coping skills, anger management, and make positive life choices.
The family support program works with other Baptist Health programs and community services to help the client receive educational classes, baby care classes, and the completion of educational goals. The active involvement of the family, care giver, or guardian in the client’s care is essential to the client’s success.
