Navigating Mental Healthcare

Knowing where to turn for specialized medical care can be a daunting task — especially when it comes to mental healthcare. Even primary care providers struggle to refer parents to appropriate care providers. It can be especially difficult to find care providers able to collaborate to meet a range of patient needs.

A primary benefit of a residential substance use and mental health treatment program like Muir Wood is its ability to provide coordinated healthcare. Doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and case managers develop comprehensive care plans, meet regularly to discuss patient progress and adust treatments over time, and identify new needs as they arise.

Maintaining mental health progress requires ongoing, regular management. The same coordinated array of healthcare services provided by Muir Wood should be continued after returning home, or at the next treatment step. Muir Wood specialists work with clients and families to identify the types of healthcare services they need and finds providers in the home community to ensure a smooth transition to ongoing care.
