Taking Shape: Adolescent Program Ages 13 to 17
Adolescence presents opportunities for growth, exploration, and forming their sense of self. This is the time where concerns and questions arise with relationships with family and peers, sexuality, gender identity, substance use, and school demands. Depression, Anxiety, and stress may cause struggle. Group therapy and education utilizing multiple modalities provides the tools for promoting healthy self-expression and communication,mood regulation, establishing healthy boundaries, self-respect, and confidence.
Taking Flight: Young Adult Program Ages 18 to 25
For many young adults, the transition years between teenage and adulthood can be filled with mixed emotions. Young adults must engage and adapt to a fast-paced world. It can be a time of feeling overwhelmed by increased responsibility, independence, and future goal setting. For those with mental health issues, this life phase can be even more challenging causing one to feel isolated and different than their peers. We provide a therapeutic, safe, and welcoming environment to assist our young adults in improving their coping, functioning, and mood.
Taking Care: Adult Program Ages 26 and older
Our Taking Care program is designed to provide short-term stabilization and resolution to adults suffering from a crisis or exacerbation of their mental health disorder. Self-Care leads to a better quality of life and maintains well-being. Our program allows a person to receive treatment while still maintaining an active and independent lifestyle at school, work, or in the community at large. Our goal is to help people get back to living a healthy, productive life as soon as possible.

Take Care of your mental health with our specialized first responder treatment program. We provide support to our community heroes, who are the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency.

They help you to cope with stress management and trauma related to the job as well as personal/home life stressors and mental health issues. Westborough’s F.R.S.T. Intensive Outpatient, Partial Hospitalization Programs, and Individual therapy are specifically catered to the first responder population. We use a combination of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy(DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and critical incident stress management skills to help first responders cope with job related stress/trauma as well as personal/home life stressors and mental health issues. Our clinicians have an understanding of first responder culture through previous work experiences and can help patients address their mental health needs without judgement or stigma.

Our Program Philosophy
Outpatient Services at Westborough Behavioral Healthcare Hospital are designed to help each client learn effective ways to manage and care for oneself. We believe that treatment should help each person find his or her own path towards recovery and that treatment should be highly individualized. We believe that personal, emotional, spiritual recovery and personal development occurs along a continuum and that treatment should be matched to the needs of the individual (and when practical, the inclusion of their loved-ones) as they proceed along that continuum. We believe that honesty is the foundation of healing and growth; and that occurs best in an atmosphere of rigorous self-examination.
Our Mental Health Outpatient Programs are designed to provide short-term stabilization and resolution for adolescent and adult individuals suffering from a crisis or exacerbation of their psychiatric condition. Our programs allow you to receive treatment while still maintaining an active and independent lifestyle at school, work, or in the community at large. Our goal is to help you get back to living your life as quickly and productively as possible.
The majority of therapeutic work in the PHP/IOP programs is accomplished through group therapy sessions. Group work has been shown by many bodies of research to be remarkably effective in the healing and recovery process due to the multi-dimensional healing attributes present. You will also have the opportunity to work with a team of therapeutic clinicians during the program, including mental health clinicians, physicians and others. Your primary clinician will provide an orientation of the program to discuss and review the specifics of your specialized treatment plan. You will have the opportunity to participate in the creation of a treatment plan, or road map for treatment, that will be tailored to meet your unique needs. Variables in treatment can involve your individualized experiences and needs, program track time, the involvement of significant others or family in treatment, anticipated length of treatment, among others.
