Capital Regional Medical Center Opens Behavioral Health Outpatient Services

Tallahassee, Florida - Capital Regional Behavioral Health Center is opening Outpatient Services to provide additional psychiatric services to adults in the area.

Behavioral-health–specific facilities are a need in Tallahassee and the surrounding communities. One-out-of-every-four Americans experience a diagnosable mental illness or substance abuse every year. Capital Regional Behavioral Health Center Outpatient Services will offer Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Maternal Mental Health Outpatient programs to meet this demand.

The Partial Hospitalization Program includes a minimum of four group therapy sessions per day, and approximately 35 hours per week of therapeutic group activities; the Intensive Outpatient Program includes 15 hours per week of therapeutic group activities.

The Partial Hospitalization Program includes a minimum of four group therapy sessions per day, and approximately 35 hours per week of therapeutic group activities; the Intensive Outpatient Program includes 15 hours per week of therapeutic group activities.

Additional services offered with all three programs include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dual Diagnosis Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Educational Group Therapy
  • Medication Management

“Behavioral health treatment has come a long way, but just as with other diseases, psychiatric disorders have episodic flare-ups that require intervention and followup,” said Meg Young, Director of Behavioral Health Services at Capital Regional Medical Center. “With our new Outpatient Services, we have more opportunities to ensure our patients receive the care they need, when and where they need it.”
