South Bay is dedicated to improving the lives of people who suffer from psychiatric illness to help them regain control of their situation. We strive to give our patients peace of mind and help open the door for a higher quality of life with fewer frustrations and greater opportunities.
Our Day Services programs provide collaborative psycho social rehabilitation to adults with psychiatric disabilities through a shared culture of recovery that extends into the community. Our strengths-based treatment model is designed to address each individual’s unique areas of need and ability. The Day Services teams consist of physicians, psychiatric clinicians, social workers, behavioral health counselors and other behavioral health professionals. These dedicated men and women are trained in a variety of specialty areas including substance use disorders, psychiatric illness and dual diagnosis.
Our day services are made up of four main programs designed to provide excellent service and support for those most in need.
Partial Hospital Program
The focus of South Bay’s Partial Hospital Program is to provide an intermediate level of care that offers the intensity and structure of an inpatient program combined with the less restrictive environment of outpatient care. This program is used as a hospital diversion solution or as a transition from an inpatient facility to the community. The services are intensive, the programming is highly structured, and consumers have continuous contact with our psychiatrists on a regular basis. Through this program, consumers can begin to ease back into their normal lives and enjoy more freedom without losing their network of support. At this stage, it is imperative that participants have constant access to our trained staff in order to make the transition less stressful and/or avoid hospitalization.
Intensive Outpatient Program
South Bay’s Intensive Outpatient Program offers short-term programming for those who do not require the intensity of a full day Partial Hospitalization program. IOP consists of intensive treatment within a stable therapeutic setting. Like a full day Partial Program, IOP provides daily management and active treatment in an outpatient setting and consumers have continuous contact with our psychiatrists on a regular basis. Some psychiatric illness is more manageable with access to the correct help and support, and consumers may use this program to avoid the more intense option. Through IOP, our staff provides a hands-on, comprehensive level of support that consumers access each day in order to maintain a healthy and productive lifestyle.
Structured Outpatient Addiction Program
South Bay’s Structured Outpatient Addiction Program provides short-term, clinically intensive, structured addiction treatment services. This program is designed to enhance continuity for consumers being discharged from acute treatment services (Level III) or medically managed (Level IV) detoxification programs as they return to their homes and communities. SOAP is also appropriate for consumers whose symptoms indicate a need for more intensive addiction treatment than can be provided in a regular outpatient program. Clinical programming is primarily group-oriented, with additional individual and family counseling services available.
Addiction is a chronic relapsing brain disease, and many wait until it is out of control to seek treatment. SOAP was designed to help participants return to their daily lives more effectively and give them the structure they need to make the right progress. Through our structured program, participants can count on us to help them build a better life and a future worth reaching.
This is a less intensive level of care than our Partial Hospital Program. The focus of Day Treatment is on recovery. We maintain a strong belief in psychosocial rehabilitation, and our objective is to facilitate our clients’ adjustment to their psychiatric disabilities. Our staff is committed to the value of integrating recovery-oriented and consumer focused approaches within our programs. These include respecting people’s lived experiences, acknowledging their areas of expertise, and also helping promote increased decision-making.
