What happens when I'm ready to leave the program?
During the CBT program, a treatment team works with you to determine the most helpful after-care plan for your individual needs. Before leaving the program, you will receive a discharge instruction sheet, which includes follow-up plans, outpatient appointments, and any necessary prescriptions. The program also offers a free CBT skills aftercare group every Wednesday from 5 – 6:30 pm for patients who have completed the program and are seeking ongoing support.
Is lunch provided?
Lunch is not provided, but cafeteria services are available from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. You may eat in the cafeteria or in the program space, where there is a room for you to relax and enjoy your lunch. You may also bring your lunch from home.
May I smoke?
Butler Hospital is a smoke-free, tobacco-free campus. Smoking is not permitted in the buildings or on the grounds. If you smoke or use tobacco products, the hospital will provide medications that may aid in smoking cessation or help to manage nicotine withdrawal symptoms. We appreciate your cooperation with our smoke-free policy.
May I use the phone?
A phone is available for your use during free time and non-group time. Out of respect for patient confidentiality, cell phones are not permitted in the Partial Hospital building.
