Parts of a mental illness are not only the symptoms of the illness, but also the resulting impairments of skills that hinder the patient's participation in everyday and professional life. The diagnosis of such secondary effects and their therapy with the aim of the best possible restoration of the performance of the whole person is the central task of the rehabilitation process.
In order to achieve this, medical, psychological, psychotherapeutic and sociotherapeutic findings are combined into an overall plan of action in an integrative therapy approach. This takes into account the fact that biological, psychological and social factors play an important role both in the development and in the maintenance and healing of psychosomatic and psychiatric disorders. The holistic perception of people is a major concern for us.
Psychiatric rehabilitation is offered in both inpatient and outpatient form. Outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation offers the advantage that you stay in the familiar environment and the therapy can be integrated into everyday life. The fact that the patient has to independently cover the distance between home and the outpatient department on therapy days also makes outpatient rehabilitation more job-oriented than inpatient. The proximity to the place of residence also facilitates the therapeutic involvement of relatives, the establishment of social networks and the planning of further treatments in the region.
The outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation can take place for a period of six weeks on at least four days of the week (phase II) or extend over a maximum of one year (phase III).
