All Kinds of News for April 08, 2020
Executive Director Brent Esplin, LMFT, and Associate Executive Director Noel Miller, BS are excited to announce the opening of Potomac at Hobble Creek (PHC), scheduled to open in late Spring in Hobble Creek Canyon above Springville, Utah.
Potomac at Hobble Creek will serve up to 16 adolescent girls in a beautiful mountain home setting. This short-term, primarily insurance-paid program is designed around DBT, the Seven Challenges, and a family systemic treatment approach. Research has proven that robust family involvement and at-home community support accelerate change and ensure lasting progress for clients. Clients will be enrolled on average 30 - 60 days.
Mr. Esplin and Ms. Miller bring over twenty-five years of clinical and administrative leadership to PHC and have recruited a powerful team that includes local psychiatric on-site support, a blend of academic services including online and live classroom work, a full array of experiential activities and ongoing family and community involvement.
Kimball DeLaMare, LCSW, Senior Vice President of Potomac Programs said, "PHC will be the first of several short-term residential programs which will complement the Potomac Programs' audacious goal to reduce teen suicide, depression and anxiety to all-time lows by 2028."
Potomac Programs, a division of Embark Behavior Health, is building local continuums of care including outpatient clinics and community-based in-home services alongside short-term residential programs like PHC. This growth will increase accessibility to premium behavioral healthcare while reducing out-of-pocket costs for families.
