The Outpatient Department at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center provides an initial comprehensive assessment by either a psychiatrist or a social worker that includes developing an individualized treatment plan. Outpatient therapy uses a brief treatment model of care that will quickly focus on the patient's relevant problems and develop a specific and focused treatment plan. When indicated, closely monitored treatment with appropriate medications will be initiated by the psychiatric staff, including adult and child psychiatrists and adult psychiatry residents closely supervised by the staff psychiatrists. The department also provides specialized group therapy experiences that address anxiety and depression and interpersonal and life skills.

Acute Partial Hospital Program
Suppose you or a loved one require more intensive treatment, including daily nursing and psychiatric services. In that case, the Acute Partial Hospital at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center can meet your needs, whether just discharged from the hospital or at high risk for hospitalization. A staff of qualified professionals, including psychiatrists, social workers, and nurses, provides intense therapy within a structured five-hour-a-day program. Together we develop and monitor an individualized treatment plan. Once stabilized, you may transition to less than a five-day-a-week treatment and less than five hours a day of treatment. If needed, Bergen New Bridge provides transportation to and from the program.
