Clearview Behavioral Health

(CBH) provides structured rehabilitative services for persons with a mental illness, developmental disability or brain injury who are experiencing difficulty managing within their “home” settings. We offer the security of a locked unit, while providing a homelike environment where individuals receive the services and support necessary for community reintegration.

Using an interdisciplinary team approach, we work with the individual and families or other support systems on identified treatment goals.

Clearview Behavioral Health also provides comprehensive discharge planning, including inter-agency meetings, trial visits, and an after care plan. From the time of admission through discharge, staff will be working with the individual on placement.

Specialized, individualized behavior plans are created for helping individuals develop necessary skills to help them attain their highest level of functioning. Goals are set to assist the individuals with medication and behavior management, encourage participation in functional living skills and establish routines which promote their successful return into their communities.

Our therapeutic programs focus on the physical, social, cognitive, and emotional well being of each person.

Therapeutic interventions include:

Behavior Management
Positive Incentive Program
Independent Living Skills
Supportive Counseling
Social Skills Training
Medication Awareness

The above is accomplished through hands on teaching, individual and group counseling, and a structured daily routine.

Our professional team is made up of :

Routine meetings are held with the above professionals to assess strengths and needs and evaluate the individual’s progress towards treatment goals. Evaluations will be shared monthly with involved family members and county representatives.

The individual’s care and treatment is also monitored by physicians and a psychiatrist. Involved family members and county case workers also complete the team and are an integral part of the transition from CBH to a lesser restrictive setting.

Referrals are accepted from hospitals, mental health facilities, family members and county representatives. As CBH is a 20-bed State Licensed only facility (not Medicare or Medicaid certified), payment can only be accepted through county contracts or private funding. The CBH admissions’ staff will be available to assist with the process of obtaining funding
