Awareness Directed Activities for Personal Transformation

About ADAPT

  • ADAPT is a Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM-3:30 PM, voluntary day-program for people living with mental health symptoms.  Clients learn coping skills for managing their behavioral health symptoms through six education groups daily.  Focus is on the here and now, rather than deep trauma work. Clients may see a psychiatrist for medication evaluations if needed. Lunch is provided. Typical time in the program is 7-10 days.
  • The ADAPT clinical team is multidisciplinary,  including Nurses, Social Workers, CD Counselors, Occupational Therapists, Dieticians,  Mental Health Counselors, and Psychiatrists.
  • Referrals for registering for the program come from many avenues:  primary care clinics, therapists, providers, emergency rooms, insurance companies, behavioral health clinics, family members, and self-referrals.  Once a referral is made, the ADAPT team will contact the prospective client to explain the program, determine eligibility, and set up an intake/start date.
  • Insurances accepted include Medicaid, managed Medicare, and many commercial insurances.

Philosophy of the Program

  • ADAPT's person-centered care is based on the belief that people can (and do!) recover from mental illness
  • The goal of care is to partner with people in making choices that lead to recovery
  • The individual directs every aspect of their care
  • ADAPT is an "oasis" where individuals can find support, recovery education and skills, symptom relief, and hope for the future
  • The individual works together with a team of peers and professionals and personal support people to plan participation in the critical activities
  • Families are an integral part of care if the person desires their participation
  • Making effective choices is an important part of the recovery process
  • Individuals are coached to evaluate their choices by deciding if choices take them closer to or further from their recovery goals
