Treatment and Staff

BHcare offers a variety of outpatient treatments such as individual and group therapy, substance abuse education, dual diagnosis support and medication management. Depending on the client, some combination of these services may be recommended or they will be referred to the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program, which includes all of the above. Following an initial evaluation that takes a person’s biological, psychological, environmental and social needs into account, an individualized treatment plan is developed. BHcare does not offer detox but they can provide referrals, if necessary.

The IOP program offers a high level of support, with four specialized tracks to choose from: DBT skills training, dual diagnosis, symptom management and substance abuse. This program meets three to five days a week, for three-hour sessions. Usually, a treatment plan is mapped out to span a period of eight to 12 weeks total. Most of the treatment consists of group therapy, with topics including mental health, relapse prevention, coping skills, trauma and anger management. Individual therapy is offered once a week with the client’s primary therapist.

The beauty of this program is that they offer comprehensive dual diagnosis support. With a team that includes CSACs, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses, intense therapy in combination with medication management is provided.

    Your psychiatrist should golf and retire. Always out on medical leave. He forgets to chart and has ruined my life. At 80, time to go home. I have been through three clinitions in one year. I have been released by np fault of my own, denied a REFILL on a prescription because a provider either quit or lost her licence. It is against the law to deny an existing patient an abrupt denial of a benzodiazepine drug which i did ask for. Sabe yourself, your loved ones. The 80 yr old man is unfit. Charting is imperative in any health care facility. I am now going to the medical review board.j

  2. Thanks for your feedback Julia, we’re sorry you are unhappy with the services your husband received with us. If you’d like to continue this conversation, please feel free to file a formal grievance and our Medical Director will be happy to discuss the details of the case and the steps that were taken to ensure your husband had the best possible care.

    Bh Care in Branford specializes in Rehabilitation for substance abuse clients. I took my husband there after telling the staff that he had Dementia. Instead of being honest about the fact that they are unqualified to treat this disease., he wasted six months getting no help at all. I want to warn people who are looking for help for their loved ones who suffer from dementia to stay away from Bh Care, Go to the Adler Center, part of Yale University or explore the option Of Geriatric and Adult Psychiatry, at 60 Washington Ave in Hamden, CT. Dr. Mercer was able to correct changes made to his medications by an unqualified APRN at BhCare and instead of being in a group therapy with two women, a total waste of time, he has a one on one therapist, trained in dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Thank God he is finally getting the help he needs. This facility misrepresented themselves for the sake of just adding more clients to their roster for money. Very unethical!!!!
