With locations in Greenwich, Wentworthville, Macarthur, Cremorne, St. Leonards (soon to be open) and Brookvale, Australia, Northside Group is a broad behavioral health organization that provides flexible treatment services to clients struggling with a variety of issues. The company is a subsidiary of Ramsay Health Care, a major Australia-based healthcare provider. While the specifics vary by location, Northside Group offers care plans for those struggling with addiction, mental illness, eating disorders and co-occurring disorders as well. In addition to inpatient care at its many locations, it also has an outpatient-exclusive facility in Brookvale, which is a suburb of northern Sydney.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, all participants go through an intake and assessment to help staff members determine their needs. With medical and psychiatric staff often on-site, those in need of detox and stabilization services can do so in the Brookvale location before continuing to therapy. Although all plans are individualized, treatment protocols typically address clients on many different levels—including psychological, physical, nutritional and social. Treatment plans are available in outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) intensities.
In most cases, clients attend busy days, which include both group and individual therapy featuring evidence-based practices such as CBT, DBT and psychoeducation. Other sessions include exercise classes, nutritional education, social skills groups, anger management and other rotating life skills workshops. Those with eating disorders can also expect supervised eating sessions and more one-on-one time with dietitians to develop health diets. Although 12-step recovery is not always required, it may be encouraged in some cases. Dual diagnosis support including medication management is provided.
The staff at Northside Group is broad and includes doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, case managers, dietitians and additional Master’s-level clinicians and counselors.
As an added bonus, the curriculum when it comes to physical education is diverse and includes activities like Tai Chi, cardio classes, boxing and weight training. Although the above programs are more flexible, those seeking more intensive care can also attend inpatient treatment at one of the locations mentioned above. Finally, those who complete a program can also work with staff to develop stepped down aftercare plans.
In all, the Northside Group is a well-rounded organization with services for a range of needs. Outpatient care comes in an array of intensities and includes individualized care, medical and psychiatric oversight and life skills education. All participants are treated on many different levels with wraparound care also available. While the price of treatment may vary by insurance and program specifics, those in the area would do well to consider Northside Group’s outpatient programs.
