Psychiatric & Medical Services
At Legacy Treatment Center, we understand that mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder can significantly impact the success of addiction treatment. To aid in the healing process, we offer psychiatric services that can help clients overcome these challenges.
Our experienced medical staff includes a program psychiatrist who conducts psychiatric assessments, follows up on medications, and provides consultations. We also have a full-time, on-site nurse, a Medical Director, and access to a local medical clinic. Our team of professionals not only has expertise in their specialties but also has experience treating mental health issues in a therapeutic environment.
Together, they work collaboratively to assess, prescribe, modify, and monitor all client medications to ensure they are of maximum benefit to each individual client. Whether a client comes to our program with a pre-existing medication regimen or needs to start a new medication, our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to support the healing process.
At Legacy Treatment Center, we understand that participating in Wilderness Therapy can be challenging both physically and mentally. Our priority is the safety and well-being of our clients, which is why we take a comprehensive approach to medical care.
Our medical staff, including a program psychiatrist, a full-time on-site nurse, and a Medical Director, all have experience treating mental health issues and medical concerns in an outdoor therapeutic environment. They work together to assess, prescribe, modify, and monitor medications and provide medical care to ensure the maximum benefit for each client.
Before entering our program, each client receives a full physical exam at the local medical clinic to ensure they are healthy enough to participate in the outdoor activities we offer. Additionally, our field staff are trained to triage and refer medical concerns to our nursing staff, who are available 24/7 to address any issues that may arise.
Our guides are trained in wilderness first aid, and we have access to specialists, dentists, and emergency care, including hospitalization if necessary. We also scale the level of physical exertion for our adventures each week to match the capacity of the clients in the group.
At Legacy Treatment Center, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients so they can focus on their healing and growth. To learn more about our safety measures, please visit our Safety page.
