Located in the the N.J. city of Freehold, CentraState Medical Center is a private health organization that offers psychiatric services to people of all ages. The facility provides inpatient and outpatient programs to individuals seeking treatment for mental health and behavioral problems. Across New Jersey, while 88 percent of facilities offer outpatient treatment, only 3.2 percent offer inpatient (hospital) treatment.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to CentraState Medical Center’s website, the emergency mental health services provides immediate assessments, support, and referrals. After an initial evaluation, a staff member will work with the individual to create a treatment plan. The inpatient program at CentraState Medical Center is for people 18 years old and older.
The center’s goal for inpatient residents is to stabilize the client and improve their coping skills, socialization, self-care, and daily functioning. CentraState Medical Center’s website indicates the facility uses electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) on an inpatient and outpatient basis. ECT is used to treat those suffering from major depression, repeated suicide thoughts, mania, and some types of schizophrenia.
According to the center’s website, the facility is staffed by a full-time medical doctor, a nursing director, psychiatrists, a PhD psychologist, therapists, psychiatric nurses, a substance abuse counselor, social workers, and activity therapists.
