Individuals 18 years of age or older seeking treatment are first seen in our Evaluation and Referral Unit at the Center for Integrative Behavioral Medicine. The center is located at 1130 South Avenue, Staten Island NY 10314. Clinicians at this division perform psychiatric assessments for all patients who are seeking outpatient treatment, including those with behavioral health or substance use disorders.
To schedule an appointment, please call (718)-818-6132.
After the initial assessment is completed, patients are referred to the most appropriate behavioral health or substance use disorder program that best meets their needs:
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – Bridges to Wellness
Bridges to Wellness is a short-term, intensive, highly structured outpatient behavioral health treatment approach aimed at stabilizing patients experiencing acute mental health symptoms. PHP is often a step-down from inpatient psychiatry, a step up from an intensive outpatient program and can be used as an alternative to psychiatric hospitalization or to shorten an inpatient hospitalization. As an outpatient treatment, it is less restrictive than an inpatient setting and facilitates recovery in the community. Patients age 18 and older receive intensive group and individual therapy, medication evaluation and management, and family support and education within a supportive therapeutic environment.
Services are provided at 1130 South Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10314.
For additional information, please call (718)-818-6814.
