Mental Health Treatment in a Community Setting
Our approach to clinical care is grounded in a supportive community with traditional psychotherapy and group therapies, along with optimized medication use and education to guide residents toward personal long-term care management. CooperRiis’ commitment to science-backed clinical care is combined with our Community Work & Service and Integrative Wellness Program to offer a unique recovery model that’s built on our philosophy of mind and heart working together. For adults living with anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, dual diagnosis, major depressive disorder, personality disorders, PTSD and schizophrenia, CooperRiis offers a personalized path to reach mental wellness.
Resident’s Integrative Recovery Team
Each resident is welcomed by a caring Integrative Recovery Team who will support the resident and family throughout their recovery journey at CooperRiis. The team is led by a clinical director and includes the resident’s therapist, psychiatrist, recovery coordinator, community work and service program leaders, residential staff and wellness staff. This connected and caring partnership helps empower the resident to take ownership of their own recovery.
As a first step at CooperRiis, a resident meets with their recovery coordinator to craft a personal Dream Statement, laying out hopes and dreams for the future. Throughout the recovery process, the Dream Statement serves as a roadmap to work toward valued life goals.
Individual & Group Therapies
Each resident is paired with a licensed therapist and meets formally for psychotherapy sessions at least once a week. These focused sessions may take place in an office or out in nature, enjoying the CooperRiis campus as a healing backdrop.
With the guidance of their Integrative Recovery Team, residents also engage in group therapy sessions, both general and specialized. Because so many of our residents have struggled with addiction, CooperRiis also offers substance abuse support and risk assessment in both individual and group therapy sessions.
At CooperRiis, we believe in optimized medication use and education to guide residents toward personal long-term care management. It’s part of a personalized and comprehensive recovery roadmap. Combined with individual and group therapy, Community Work & Service, and Integrative Wellness Program, medicine can be lifesaving as well as life-supporting. We work with residents so they understand medication’s role in the overall care and recovery process.
A resident’s medications are reviewed upon admission and then regularly evaluated by a CooperRiis psychiatrist. To support self-monitoring and participation in treatment, residents receive written and verbal education and guidance on all medications.
