Aurora Charter Oak provides different levels of care for mental health for both adults and adolescents. Adults and adolescents experiencing a mental health crisis are admitted into our inpatient care for stabilization to receive more intensive psychiatric attention and therapy. If a lower level of care is appropriate for an adult, attending our outpatient program is encouraged. Adolescents will be referred out to an adolescent outpatient for the time being.
Outpatient treatment is 3 to 5 days a week, where individuals participate in group therapy and other modalities of therapy such as recreational and art therapy. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows patients to attend program three days a week and see their psychiatrist once a month. The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) allows patients to attend program 5 days a week and meet with their psychiatrist once a week.
We’re dedicated to providing evidence-based treatments for a variety of mental health conditions.
Here is an overview of some of the conditions we treat:
Anxiety disorders involve chronic worry and fear. At Charter Oak, we understand that this can disrupt daily life. Our team is dedicated to teaching individuals effective ways to manage anxiety, helping to restore balance and peace.
Bipolar disorder can cause significant mood swings, from manic highs to depressive lows. These changes can affect energy levels and the ability to carry out everyday tasks. We provide specialized treatment options to help individuals manage these swings and work their way to a stable, fulfilling life.
Chemical Dependency/Substance Abuse
Chemical dependency involves a physical and psychological reliance on substances. This can lead to health problems and disrupt personal and professional lives. Our comprehensive approach helps individuals overcome this dependency, fostering healthier coping mechanisms for stress and emotions.
Depression goes beyond temporary feelings of sadness. It’s a condition that can cause persistent low moods, impacting all areas of life. At Charter Oak, our compassionate team guides individuals as they overcome this condition, helping them to regain joy and enthusiasm in their lives.
A mental or nervous breakdown is a period of intense mental distress, often triggered by stress. These episodes can be daunting. Our professional team provides the necessary support to navigate these tough times and work toward mental stability.
Psychological trauma results from distressing events that can leave lasting emotional wounds. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety. At Charter Oak, we offer personalized treatments to aid in managing these symptoms and healing from trauma.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Symptoms can interfere with daily life, making it difficult for individuals to move forward. Our dedicated team helps individuals process these experiences, providing tools for managing symptoms and fostering resilience.
Self-harm is a harmful response to overwhelming emotional pain or stress. It’s a way some people attempt to manage their distressing feelings. At Charter Oak, we’re committed to helping individuals develop healthier coping strategies and work on their emotional well-being.
Schizophrenia is a complex mental health disorder that impacts thought processes, emotions, and behavior. This condition requires comprehensive and specialized care. We provide therapies and strategies aimed at managing these symptoms, promoting a more balanced and fulfilling life.
