70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives. If you are coping with the effects of trauma, our world-renowned experts are here to help you. Contact us today to talk about your treatment options.
At McLean, we know what it is to struggle with the psychological effects of trauma. Our expert staff is here to help you find the tools you need to manage your day-to-day life.
We offer two levels of care focused on helping individuals with trauma-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and dissociative disorders.
Our partial hospital program provides short-term day program care. Patients learn about the intersection of trauma-related thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical experiences. Individuals gain an understanding of how past trauma affects them in the present, while learning to maintain safety and stability and effectively use self-regulation skills.
Our outpatient program offers individual, couples, and group therapy focused on trauma processing. Individuals work toward understanding and improving trauma-related thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The program also emphasizes reconnecting with important relationships and resuming meaningful activities.
The partial hospital programming is ideal for those in acute situations who need more intensive treatment than outpatient treatment can offer, but are able to manage without 24-hour support. Individuals who benefit most are those who have the ability and willingness to work collaboratively with our team and remain safe, sober, and medically stable while in treatment. This short-term option has an average length of treatment of about 2 weeks.
The outpatient clinic is ideal for individuals who have already established coping skills and are currently safe, stable, and ready to focus on processing their trauma. Many of our patients have recently completed other treatment programs focusing on skills and safety, such as the Hill Center or McLean’s Behavioral Health Partial Hospital Program. Participation in our outpatient care lasts on average 3-6 months.
Please note: Our programming is currently offered online only.
“I am grateful for the time and opportunity I was given in the program. I feel like I am journeying outside of the darkness now. Life has begun to bud and I feel the sun on my face.”– Hill Center patient
Our trauma-focused care is informed by multiple evidence-based approaches to treating trauma-related disorders.
The partial hospital program uses the tenets of cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, and as well trauma-specific treatment models at the core of their patient care. The outpatient clinic utilizes research-informed approaches for trauma processing.
Both programs integrate clinical research into patient care, adapting to latest trends and conducting studies involving patients who are willing to participate.
Partial hospital patients attend groups weekdays from 9am to 2pm. Patients also meet individually with a case manager twice weekly and psychology, psychiatry and nursing staff for assessment and consultation as needed. Outpatient therapy is available per the program’s groups schedule and open appointments for individuals and couples.
