The home atmosphere and small group dynamics at Balsam House encourage and support clients while they deal with the challenges of living with a condition like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Residents are involved in an innovative daily program of group and individual therapy, social activities and daily tasks geared towards the enhancement of social and practical living skills.
Balsam House is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by skilled professional staff who provide a full range of psychiatric services and are able to respond promptly to the needs of the resident. The treatment team, consisting of multiple psychiatrists, registered nurses and licensed master’s level behavioral health professionals, meets Monday through Friday mornings to discuss each resident’s care and treatment planning. Clients meet with their psychiatrist and therapist several times per week. Medications are administered by a registered nurse or other qualified professional staff.
