Engage's clinical offering is clinical sophisticated and intensive as a residential treatment setting while giving our young adults the needed freedom and autonomy to move into adulthood. Every young adult treatment experience is guided by Engage's comprehensive plan. We are treating the whole individual and it is vital to have a comprehensive treatment plan that is customized. Mental health is complex and many different variables impact our overall functioning. At Engage, we treat the whole individual.
Engage's comprehensive plans includes a master treatment plan, integrative psychiatric evaluation, nutritional/dietary plan, genetic testing, blood panel, vocational/career assessment, and personal training plan. Engage’s multidisciplinary team is under the supervision and leadership of our clinical director. The young adult participates in their treatment team meetings to support their growth in personal advocacy and independence.
Master Treatment Plan
A master treatment plan is a working document that details the young adult's current mental health struggles and outlines the goals and strategies that will assist the client in addressing their mental health struggles. Engage’s clinical director works collaboratively with our young adults to construct a master treatment plan that has achievable goals that provide the best chances for treatment success. A master treatment plan provides a guide to treatment for the young adult and their therapist. Goals and treatment objectives will vary depending on the clinical needs of the young adult.
Integrative Psychiatric Evaluation
Engage psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner approaches medication management from an integrative psychiatry approach. Our integrative psychiatric plan is a holistic, patient-focused approach to health and wellness that aims to rebalance health. Integrative psychiatry combines medications, psychotherapy, and lifestyle interventions to understand and treat illnesses and optimize health.
Nutrition & Dietary Plan
Eating is an act of self-care, but also a way to promote connection and satisfaction in our lives. Our dietitian promotes the ideas of adequacy, variety, and enjoyment in regards to eating experiences. Individualized nutrition is necessary to allow for unique needs, cultural differences, budgetary constraints, and preferences. Through Engage’s nutritional plan our young adults will find strategies to get in adequate nutrients while still honoring budget, culture, and preferences. Engage’s dietitian works with our young adults to replace guilt associated with eating choices with self-compassion and utilization of gentle nutrition to promote improved quality of life.
Personal Training Plan
Our Young Adults have the opportunity to work 1-1 with a certified Personal Trainer at an award winning gym. Together they can formulate a personalized fitness plan according to the young adult's abilities, desires, and levels of motivation. The Personal Trainer encourages and pushes the Young Adult as they work out during sessions. The Young Adults also have many opportunities during the week to attend the gym with Life Coaches and peers.
RxMatch Genetic Testing

Pharmacogenomic information to help decide the most appropriate treatment for each individual, including the identification of drugs that are more likely to work, avoiding drugs that might have adverse side effects, and adjusting the dose of a drug.
