FAQ Frequently Asked Questions about Mental Health Treatment

Whether it is a patient dealing with one or more debilitating mental illnesses, or a concerned family member intent on getting their loved one the help they so desperately need, one thing is for certain, everyone has questions. And when we are dealing with mental health and illnesses like depression, and PTSD, and mood disorders, panic disorders, and so on, no question should go unanswered.

We have compiled a list of some of the most common questions we get asked here at Bel Air Home. Keep in mind, the questions and answers shown below are more from a general perspective. Whereas, questions pertaining to yours or your loved one’s treatment/illness are much more specific and personal, and will always merit a custom tailored answer, because no two patients are ultimately alike.

If you, or someone you know, has general (or specific) questions about Bel Air Home that are not covered here, please don’t hesitate to contact us 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at (888) 818-7762. You may also send us an email or use the confidential contact form at the bottom of this page.

Does The Bel Air Home also treat drug and alcohol addictions?

Bel Air Home does treat clients with drug and/or alcohol addiction issues. Generally speaking, however, given our in-depth and broad expertise within the scope of treating mental illness, it is best when the addiction exists as a secondary malady, and the mental illness remains the primary debilitating factor.

You say Bel Air Home is "dual licensed," what does that mean?

Being dual-licensed is quite rare when it comes to non-hospital, residential type settings. Dual licensed means that our program is certified for both, mental health treatment as well as crisis stabilization.

What does it mean when you say this is a "hybrid" program?

The Bel Air Home essentially takes the most effective components of each treatment style and merges them into one. As such, we have taken time-tested approaches & therapies, and combined them with the latest in advanced behavioral science, such as Ketamine and TMS treatments.

How big of a role does psychotropic medication play in this program?

In utilizing a hybrid, wrap-around approach to treatment, we are often able to reduce the patient’s dependency on medication. When medication is necessery we absolutely employ it, but we strive to reduce the patient’s reliance upon it if possible.

How long is the Bel Air Home program?

Those who pay using their PPO insurance plan generally stay for about 25 to 30 days, since that is what the majority of health insurance plans allow. Private-pay patients will oftentimes stay for a longer period of time, usually 45 to 60 days.

What is the residence like in terms of comforts, amenities, etc.?

From furnishings, to bedrooms, to cuisine and so forth, and with no more than 6 patients at any given time, there is definitely a feel for true comfort, exclusivity, and privacy. And while our comforts and welcoming presence are, no doubt, a primary factor within the overall program, the fact remains that our clinical excellence, efficacy and staff expertise is foremost, above all else.

What will be different here than my past treatment experiences?

Listen, there are never any guarantees when it comes to treating mental illness. And truth be told, if the patient doesn’t want to be here and isn’t willing to honestly engage in the process, then a positive outcome is very unlikely. However, the scope of what we can offer, and the wrap-around process we employ, which aims to leave no clinical, emotional & psychological stone unturned, consistently garners strong results among patients truly willing to engage in the healing process. The Bel Air Home is anything but your typical mental health treatment center.
