Suicidal ideation is a troubling experience that can lead to devastating outcomes.

This clinical term encompasses a range of thoughts related to ending your own life. Some people who experience suicidal ideation are struggling with a mental or behavioral health disorder. Other people may be having these thoughts in response to stress, traumatic events, or other external factors.

Regardless of the cause, anyone who has thoughts of suicide is at risk and needs effective professional treatment.

Why Consider Treatment for Suicidal Ideation at Haverhill Pavilion

Benefits of getting treatment for suicidal ideation at Haverhill Pavilion in Haverhill, MA

It is not an exaggeration to note that untreated suicidal ideation can have a profound negative impact on a person’s life. The risk that a person may act on these thoughts is, of course, the primary concern, but suicidal ideation can also cause other distressing outcomes.

For example, people who struggle with untreated suicidal ideation may have trouble forming and maintaining healthy relationships, which can lead to social withdrawal or ostracization. In the absence of proper treatment for suicidal ideation, individuals may attempt to self-medicate with alcohol or other drugs. This can lead to addiction, which can bring about a host of additional challenges.

Untreated suicidal ideation can affect a person’s physical, psychological, and social well-being. But when a person gets proper care for suicidal ideation, their outlook on life and their prospects for improved wellness can improve significantly.

Haverhill Pavilion is a place of rest and recovery. Here, adults and older adults can receive age-appropriate inpatient treatment for suicidal ideation. If a person’s struggles with suicidal ideation are related to a mental or behavioral health disorder, we can identify and address the underlying disorder. If they have been dealing with stress, pressure, trauma, or other challenges, we can develop the personalized treatment plan that will prepare them to achieve long-term progress.

Continuing Care After Inpatient Treatment for Suicidal Ideation

Continuing care options after completing inpatient treatment for suicidal ideation

When you receive inpatient treatment for suicidal ideation at Haverhill Pavilion, you’ll spend a relatively brief amount of time with us. However, the care and related support services you receive at our treatment center in Haverhill, MA, will be designed with your long-term success in mind.

The day that you enter treatment for suicidal ideation, your team will begin to plan for your eventual discharge. While you are focused on making immediate progress and achieving stability, members of your team will be developing the plan that will guide your continued progress in the weeks and months after you transition out of our care.

Continuing care for suicidal ideation can take many forms. One of the reasons that we start the discharge planning process so early is to ensure that we can document your progress, identify your immediate and ongoing needs, and determine the resources that will meet those needs. The general goal of the discharge planning process is to ensure that you have the support you need to sustain and build upon the progress you make at Haverhill Pavilion.

For some people, continuing care after inpatient treatment for suicidal ideation involves structured step-down programming such as residential care, partial hospitalization programming, or intensive outpatient programming. We do not provide these levels of care at Haverhill Pavilion, but we can refer you to trusted, thoroughly vetted, and highly reputable providers in the Haverhill, MA, area or elsewhere in the United States.

Your ideal continuing care plan after inpatient treatment for suicidal ideation may also include traditional outpatient therapy, peer-moderated support groups, and other community-based services. Your discharge plan will connect you with services near you so that you can continue to benefit from them in the weeks, months, and even years to come.
