About The Life Adjustment Team
The Life Adjustment Team provides effective in-home structure and support systems that empower patients to live stable, active and productive lives using evidence-based treatment concepts for successful rehabilitation and recovery.
While there has been significant progress in the development of new medications that reduce symptoms, equally important is the empowering knowledge and skills patients can attain through state-of-the-art rehabilitation to manage their illness and enjoy meaningful, productive lives.
The Team implements psychosocial rehabilitation programs on a one-to-one basis in the home and surrounding community. Over the past 40 years, this approach has proven to be instrumental in significantly reducing or eliminating the need for repeated hospitalizations and has helped many patients achieve a satisfying level of successful independent living. All LAT clinicians have achieved either a masters’ or doctorate degree in psychology or a related field, or are licensed MFTs or LCSWs, and all come to the Team with a minimum of several years of experience working with people with mental illness.
The focus of treatment with the Life Adjustment Team is determined by an assessment of seven specific domains of functioning. Goals and plans are developed to stabilize patients using a combination of skills training in medication and symptom management and goal directed outreach supportive case management services. Patients can be seen daily when necessary, but are usually scheduled three to four days (ten to fifteen hours) a week and services are gradually decreased as stability is achieved.
