The center’s treatment is evidence-based including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Realty Therapy combined with our Social IntegrationTM model.
Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center – Raleigh offers two program levels that provide ongoing interdisciplinary assessment and intensive treatment. The Partial Hospitalization Program serves both as an intervention to prevent hospitalization when problems are escalating and as a step down from hospitalizations or residential treatment programs. The Intensive Outpatient Program also allows individuals who are experiencing emerging mental health issues to gain a solid foundation before stepping down into traditional outpatient services or offer added support when current treatment is not frequent enough. The programs range from 3 to 5 days per week totaling 9 to 27 treatment hours depending on the specific needs of the individual and family.
According to research by the National Alliance on Mental Health, more than 75 percent of all mental health conditions begin before age 24, making college a critical time. Located fewer than 15 minutes from North Carolina State, Peace College, and Meredith and less than 30 minutes from Duke University and the University of North Carolina, Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center – Raleigh is perfectly situated to deliver services to the surrounding community and campuses.
The open house will take place at Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center – Raleigh in Cary, NC. Parking will be available onsite for public use. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Kristin Wolfe at 919.569.5982 or [email protected].
