The Nevada Medical Center determined that 18.3% of the population of Nevada had experienced some type of mental illness during the year of 2016. With the help of treatment centers like Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, they are predicting a decrease in that number by 2020. You can help with a family referral for a loved one who is struggling with addiction or is in need of mental illness support.
Treatment Options Available

What are the Steps in the Family Referral Process?
The first step is to call for a free and confidential assessment. This is not a psychiatric evaluation, it is a method of determining the next step or what your recommendation may be to your loved one struggling with addiction.
Most of the remaining steps are in the hands of the patient needing mental illness support, but family is involved in the development of the treatment program, as well as in group family therapy and other activities.
