Our daily treatment program consists of state-of-the-art psychopharmacology, a variety of skill building groups, general activities, small therapy groups, community meetings, physical and recreational activities, behavioral interventions, various types of outings, passes and special events. Clients are usually seen by their psychiatrist once a week. All these treatment modalities are integrated into our therapeutically directed community/milieu.
The basic daily schedule includes both structured and unstructured time. Structured groups provide skills development and formal treatment. Unstructured time encourages and allows clients to develop leisure time skills and pursuit of individual interests in preparation for a return to a less structured setting.
Offering the flexibility and creativity to accommodate the varying needs of our clients continues to be the hallmark of Canyon’s services.
Canyon Manor’s Interdisciplinary Clinical staff includes psychiatrists, physicians, nurse practitioners, licensed vocational nurses, licensed psychiatric technicians, occupational therapists, art therapist, social service workers, rehabilitation service workers, and mental health workers. Canyon Manor has a registered/licensed nurse on duty 24-hours per day.
