A unique process

At the Lindner Center of HOPE, we believe that an accurate diagnosis is the cornerstone of successful treatment. Often, patients arrive at our program with multiple diagnoses and a history of treatment attempts. Because emotional issues can be so complex, we work very hard to arrive at a conclusive diagnosis before beginning treatment.

Our clinicians use proven methodologies to diagnosis and create each patient’s individualized treatment plan. From there, we use a comprehensive approach to care, including research based treatment, nutritional education, individual therapy and group therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy and daily mental health specialist groups on topics relevant to the patient. Our programs are designed to ensure our patients’ success.

When a patient is finished with our initial program, we make sure they have the continued support they need. That may mean continuing their stay on a week by week basis. At the very least, a summary of diagnostic results and treatment recommendations are provided upon discharge.

With the consent of the patient, we provide a blueprint for continued treatment to referring professionals and continuing care providers to provide continuity of care long after a patient leaves the Lindner Center of HOPE.
