About

Yes, recovery is possible!

The Psychiatry High Risk Program (PHRP) is a nationally recognized outpatient recovery-based suicide prevention program that gets to the root causes of depression, anxiety, addiction, and suicide, aiming towards transformative healing and recovery, rather than just getting through crisis after crisis. The program provides comprehensive evidence-based treatment for youth and young adults (ages 14 to 40) who struggle with thoughts of suicide. Conditions that commonly occur in high risk individuals and addressed through this program include depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, self-harm, eating disorders, and addictions. Weekly therapy with dynamic deconstructive psychotherapy (DDP; https//www.upstate.edu/ddp) is a core required component, but medication management, family therapy and group therapies are offered as needed. This innovative program has shown outstanding outcomes, attracting both regional and national attention. Many of our clients enter the program with little hope, having been through multiple previous treatments without success, and yet have found transformative healing at the PHRP.

How it works...

Suicide is a response to feeling alone with overwhelming pain. Suicidal individuals have difficulty adaptively processing emotionally painful experiences and forming authentic and fulfilling relationships. Neuroimaging studies indicate that the emotion processing system in the brain is underdeveloped and not functioning well in those individuals, causing deficits in self capacities, such as a capacity to self-soothe, as well as hyperarousal and increased vulnerability to stress. When these deficits are combined with an inner sense of badness and alienation from self and others, the risk of suicide goes up. Treatment with DDP aims to repair the emotion processing system, helping clients to connect with and process emotionally-laden experiences in new ways. DDP also fosters authentic and fulfilling connections with others and helps clients to work towards self-acceptance and self-compassion. Studies of DDP have demonstrated long-lasting improvements in depression, addictions, relationships, and suicide-related behaviors.

How do I get started?

The first step is simply to pick up the phone and call the intake number. A friendly and kind person will return your call, check your insurance plan, and send you out a packet to complete. Once the packet is filled out and sent back to the program, you will have an opportunity to speak with a therapist there, who will tell you more about the program, answer any questions, and see if it's a good fit for you. You will then be scheduled for an intake appointment with a therapist, and you are on your way!
