Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System’s Adult Program offers a structured environment that teaches positive self-awareness, new coping skills and provides opportunities for personal development and improvement in daily functioning.

Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System recognizes the importance of family involvement and support in the treatment process, emphasizing family participation through therapy. The program allows adults and their families to work through a crisis, quickly stabilize and return to the appropriate level of care after discharge.

The process is directed by a psychiatrist-led multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals consisting of:

  • Nurses
  • Case coordinators
  • Social workers
  • Mental health technicians
  • Activity therapists
  • Substance abuse counselors

Patients participate in different elements of the program based on their individual needs, including:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Activity Therapy
  • Psychiatric Education
  • Nursing Education
  • Dependency Education
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Medication Management
  • Dietary Counseling

The individual’s case coordinator begins discharge planning upon admission by developing goals and plans for a transition to a less intensive level of treatment.
