Williams House at Lindner Center of HOPE Refines Programming to Allow for More Customized Care

After 18 months of serving patients and families utilizing a unique model of comprehensive diagnostic assessment and treatment, Williams House at Lindner Center of HOPE is enhancing its programming by refining its offerings to better meet patients where they are.

Williams House offers a specialized and intimate setting within the Lindner Center of HOPE, focusing on intensive assessment and treatment of patients, age 11 through 17, suffering with complex, co-morbid mental health issues. A new 14-day core program has a primary goal of completing an intensive assessment, determining an accurate diagnosis, and planning the best next steps. The detailed but concise diagnostic picture, which may include the results of genetic testing, informs the development of the optimal psychopharmacologic treatment plan.

Additional treatment weeks can now enhance the assessment, before or after the diagnostic period, depending upon individual need and the recommendations from the Williams House clinical team.

In essence, the program is customizable around the core diagnostic assessment period to best serve patients and families. The shorter diagnostic core and more flexible additional weeks will allow patients and families to get the greatest benefit from Williams House, as they ready for next steps in treatment and life.
