Individual Service Plan Produces Results
Every Hopewell resident has a personalized goal plan known as an Individual Service Plan (ISP). Each unique plan is created collaboratively between the resident and his/her clinician. The goals are continually visited throughout the resident’s stay.
The skills learned at Hopewell materialize into results that are closely tracked. Outcomes tracking shows that residents who fully participate in the daily programming see progress in the treatment of their mental illness. These results include: decreased psychiatric symptoms, improved interpersonal and vocational skills, improved level of functioning, increased cognitive effectiveness, decreased emotional distress and improved social and occupational competency.
Hopewell’s admissions process is responsive, caring and respectful of the applicant family’s privacy. Residents must be 18 years of age or older, have a diagnosis of a major mental health condition such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, major depression and/or other thought, mood or co-occurring disorder conditions, and must express a readiness for treatment. Individuals should have some self-care skills, be medication compliant and be in reasonable physical health. Success at Hopewell depends on multiple factors. Residents gain the greatest benefits when they are comfortable living in a rural setting and are medication compliant, interested in interacting socially, participate in the program, and want to expand their knowledge and understanding of their mental illness. A resident’s length of stay at Hopewell typically is three to six months, although some residents may have longer stays depending on their treatment plans and progress.Back to Blog
