About Us

Life Adjustment Team

The Life Adjustment Team provides effective in-home structure and support that empower clients to live stable, active and productive lives using evidence-based treatment 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 clients 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 45 years, this approach has proven instrumental in significantly reducing or eliminating the need for repeated hospitalizations and has helped many clients achieve a satisfying level of successful independent living. All LAT clinicians have a Master’s or Doctorate degree in Psychology or Social Work, and/or are LMFTs or LCSWs. LAT clinicians join the Team with a minimum of several years of experience working with individuals with mental illness.

The focus of treatment with the Life Adjustment Team is determined by an assessment using seven specific domains of functioning. Goals and rehabilitation plans are developed to stabilize clients using a combination of skills training in medication and symptom management, and goal-directed outreach supportive case management services.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide intensive outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation using a community outreach model that brings supportive, evidence-based treatment practices to our clients at home and in the community.

Our Philosophy

We provide an environment where people feel safe.

We believe each client should be encouraged to identify their personal goals and partner with our Team to develop a unique and achievable rehabilitation plan.

We are committed to interacting with everyone who works with our Team in an honest, courteous and respectful manner.

Domains of Functioning

“When the Seven Domains of Functioning are successfully addressed, clients learn to manage their illness and develop a social network. They find balance through recreational activities, attend to personal business, and strengthen family ties. Most importantly, clients gain self-confidence, find direction, and pursue satisfaction in life.”

The Life Adjustment Team was built on the principle that we all have certain needs that must be met to live happy, healthy lives. When one’s ability to meet these needs is impaired, relationships, employment, and one’s quality of life suffers.

The focus of rehabilitation with the Team is to find creative ways to help clients meet these basic needs using the following Seven Domains Of Functioning:

Psychiatric / Medical

The Life Adjustment Team was built on the principle that we all have certain needs that must be met to live happy, healthy lives. When one’s ability to meet these needs is impaired, relationships, employment, and one’s quality of life suffers.

Social / Interpersonal

Appearance, attitude, and confidence have a major impact on how one gets along with other people. The Team offers support and training in social problem solving and basic conversation skills.

Recreation

Using leisure time to recreate adds balance to life. Inactivity often results in boredom, which produces stress and negatively impacts stress-vulnerable illness. The Team uses recreation to motivate people to become active, enhance social networking, improve physical and mental health, and build self-confidence.

Self-Management

Planning, budgeting, and tracking are essential skills for independent living. The Team teaches organizational skills and systems for time management and money management and can also address all activities of daily living.

Family

Family relationships often become strained, even when family members offer to help. The Team can assist with communication and problem solving within the family and can assume the management role in treatment.

Education / Vocation

The overarching goal of recovery is to enjoy a useful and productive life. The role of The Life Adjustment Team is to help define our client’s abilities and talents, provide direction to create short, medium, and long-term goals, and implement the plans to carry them out in a supportive, respectful and empowering manner.

Belief System

Our belief system is a combination of our experiences, knowledge and insights. When faced with a difficult situation in life, we tend to focus on the problem and not the solution, which leads us to fear-based decision making. What we focus on determines our state of mind and attitude. It is essential to teach clients to focus on solutions by developing a positive attitude toward rehabilitation based on believing in themselves and the treatment team.
