PATH Integrated Healthcare offers our patients a full integrated system of care that removes potential obstacles to treatment by committing to a policy of zero barrier care. This allows clients to access a full continuum of care options that are specifically designed to meet all of their individual treatment needs. All of your needs under one roof, eliminating the challenge of scheduling multiple appointments with multiple agencies each time you would like to receive services.
Our commitment to you that we will do all that we can to ensure that you can get the help you are seeking, regardless of your age, availability, or location. With telehealth options or community and home appointments we strive to be available however suits your needs.
At The PATH, all providers are connected within one system of care. This integrated system ensures direct communication that allows for each step of your treatment process to build upon the previous one.
Positive Psychology does focus on three core aspects of your life: positive experiences, positive personal traits, and positive institutions. Simply put, The PATH strives to be a positive institution.
PATH has treatment facilities across multiple states and is expanding rapidly. Even if you cannot make it to one of our facilities we can come to your or provide services through easy and convenient telehealth options.
The PATH is an acronym for Positive Advocates Teaching and Helping. We felt it was important to choose a name that put positivity first as we believe seeing themselves in a positive light is crucial to our client's success. We also intentionally choose the term "advocates" for our employees because advocates are defined by the support they provide. Our team is happy to serve in support of your success!
The PATH is primarily funded through state Medicaid funding and income sensitive payment models. Although each state may have a different name for the programs that manage Medicaid funds, PATH accepts funding from all agencies that manage and distribute Medicaid payments. In cases where Medicaid funding is not an option, The PATH is happy to enter into a fee for service arrangement with individuals that reflects your individual ability to pay for services.
The PATH's zero barriers to care begins right up front with our intake process. We have several options to signing up for services and encourage you to select the method that is most convenient for you. You can schedule an intake and assessment with our team by calling our central intake line at 1-844-584-7284. If you prefer, you can fill out our quick contact form and a PATH representative will contact you. You can also call any of local offices and schedule an appointment. You can also feel free to stop by any of our offices as walk ins are welcome. If you have any issues with these options or just feel more comfortable communicating via email, please feel free to send a quick message to firstname.lastname@example.org
We hate to answer a question with a question but, what are your hours? We ask because we recognize that you are busy and have many obligations that you need to attend to each day. The PATH strives to live up to its zero barriers promise by providing services at most any hour and in most any place. Sessions are scheduled according to your availability, 7 days a week. We do not provide on call services and sessions are always scheduled with you, and our staff's safety in mind. For those reasons, most clients prefer to receive services at one of our integrated service centers. However, we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your needs and have help available when and where it works best for you.
Zero barriers to care dictates that we do not limit the ages that we serve. It is noteworthy that, in most cases, we do not provide services for children younger than school aged as those children are often best served by early intervention specialists. However, we are very willing to provide assessment and evaluation services to anyone of any age. If we believe anyone, regardless of age, would be better served by another provider, we will make that recommendation and assist you in arranging for services that can best meet your needs.
This is a complex question with a wide range of answers. The answers can change based on factors such as; specific diagnosis, acuity and duration of symptoms, personal motivation and willingness to engage in services, personal support systems, the presence of both mental health and substance abuse issues (dual diagnosis), your personal goals for your care, etc.
It is also important to decide if you will be engaging in care from an illness removal perspective or a wellness promotion perspective. If, like going to a medical doctor, you are simply wanting to have negative symptoms eliminated or reduced, you will base your time with us according to the presence of those unpleasant symptoms. Once the symptoms are gone or reduced to manageable levels, you're done. This can be a few weeks up to a year.
However, if you adopt a wellness promotion perspective, you will be focused on enhancing the positive aspects of your life, to make a good life even better, and to prevent future issues. Your goals will evolve over time but your focus is on building from one accomplishment to the next. This approach may take more time as it is like exercising, but for your mental wellbeing instead of your physical. You may even begin care in an illness mindset and evolve over time to a focus on promoting wellness.
What is important is to note that regardless of your approach, you will always be in control of your own care. The PATH will work collaboratively with you to develop personally meaningful treatment goals that focus on your individual needs. You will also review your progress regularly to determine whether ongoing care is still the right choice for you.
