Specialized Care to Meet Your Needs
Central Maine provides compassionate behavioral health services through:
Licensed clinical social workers in our primary care physician offices help you with depression, anxiety, grief, smoking cessation and/or substance abuse. These specially trained experts understand the emotional challenges you may be facing, and will work with you to create a solution-focused treatment plan that includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or other effective options. Treatment usually involves six to nine visits, after which you will return to your primary care physician for a maintenance plan.
Medical Management & Mental Health Care
Our behavioral specialists work directly with your primary care physician to co-manage your psychiatric and condition-specific medications and ensure you’re thriving. For more complex cases, especially when previous treatments haven’t worked, we may recommend a whole person evaluation. That includes gathering all medical records, interviewing family and friends and understanding all of your unique social or emotional concerns. Then together, you and our team we’ll determine the plan to maximize success.
Inpatient Psychiatric Crisis and Consultation
If you or a loved one is struggling with a crisis while admitted to the hospital, your care team may request, with your consent, a psychological evaluation to help you return to a sense of calm. To better coordinate care, the team will perform a crisis assessment and provide recommendations for treatment that may include moving to assisted living, a psychiatric hospital or another facility, depending on the level of care needed.
