APN Lodge is committed to person-centered, custom-curated care. Every residential client gets a one-on-one psychiatric evaluation with our staff physician. We carry out a comprehensive and reliable battery of indicated evidenced-based tests, assessments, and interviews that thoroughly examine all aspects of a guest’s condition – psychologically, physically, and spiritually. A one-on-one interview allows us to assess the biopsychosocial status of each individual.
Evaluations also help to assess the origins of substance abuse and any indication of a dual-diagnosis. We’ll do a deep dive into family history, the interpersonal relationships within the family, and any dynamics that could be contributing to substance abuse.
The APN Lodge team often utilizes a psychologist to perform a battery of psychological assessments in order to gain a deeper understanding of any mental disorders, personality disorders, learning disabilities, and more. When indicated, clients may also receive a complete psychiatric assessment from our medical team. This will determine if medication is necessary, or any other health considerations exist. Thereafter, the psychiatric practitioner will meet with the client once per week, whether the client takes medication or not. These assessments aid in the creation of an accurate treatment plan catered to each unique client. Often, assessments help indicate the benefits of certain medications and treatment modalities.
But we’ll also take a good look at the physical condition of the individual. We’ll complete a full health and physical assessment, including a multi-panel blood workup, urine analysis, and more. We’ll talk about diet and how the individual has been eating – for a nutritional perspective on healing the body and brain.
Once we’ve completed all our assessments, our clinical team will work with the individual to arrive at the best possible treatment course for his or her specific needs. Together, we’ll plot a clear path of treatment intended for not only recovery but also optimal health and mental wellness.
