Types of Services Offered

The clinic offers both talk therapy, education and medication therapy treatments according to the needs of the family and individual. Active communication and coordination between the psychiatrist, therapists and Green Pasture residence staff ensures that treatment is responsive to the needs of the individual.

Talk therapy works by changing unhelpful thought habits about self and others through discussion, experience and education. Individual and family sessions are scheduled as needed, but most people receive about 2-3 hours of individual therapy each week and at least one family session prior to discharge.

We also offer psychological testing designed to build understanding of the needs, strengths and weaknesses of the individual. This helps to guide treatment and assist the family in responding to the needs of the individual.

Medication therapytalk therapy and psychological testing are also offered to members of the Plain community who choose not to reside at the Green Pasture residence.
