Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I attend the SLIP program while receiving services from home health?
Yes. We will coordinate your schedule with you and your home health nurse/physical therapist so that you can attend on days/times that do not conflict with your home health visits.

Can I attend the SLIP program if I already have an outpatient psychiatrist that monitors my medications?
Yes. Our psychiatrist/medical director will see you for your initial evaluation and once a month with the treatment team. The SLIP psychiatrist will not make any changes in your established medication plan unless you and/or your outpatient psychiatrist request a recommendation.

Do I have to be on psychiatric medications to be admitted to the SLIP program?
No. The use of psychiatric medications are not required to be part of the SLIP program. Our mission is not to pressure you or anyone into taking psychiatric medications. The SLIP psychiatrist can assist in monitoring your psychiatric medications if you are already taking them or can prescribe something if you have concerns that you might need something and group/individual therapy alone are not meeting your needs.
