Inpatient Treatment Services
Saint John Vianney Center presently offers ten service tiers for its residential services. Some are a reworking of former programs and others are newly developed or in the process of being developed. Each tier will be described separately.
This assessment and evaluation service offers a comprehensive examination of an individual's psychological, behavioral, spiritual, and physical functioning within a 30 day or less timeframe.
A Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual Residential Program for those who find that a significant aspect of their life is out of balance. Specifically, it is based upon helping an individual with maladaptive behaviors to learn control, how to deal more effectively with the maladaptive behavior, and improve their relational style.
In Chapter VI of his pastoral exhortation, Pastores dabo vobis, John Paul II emphasizes the need for the ongoing formation of priests - a continuing journey of personal growth on what he calls "the constant path toward maturity." Such a process is essential not only for priests, but also for vowed religious and other members of the clergy who have been called to serve the Church and/or live in Community.
Additionally, John Paul II states there are certain "privileged" moments for ongoing formation to occur. When a priest or religious enters the Therapeutic Residential Service, there is the opportunity for one of those moments. With its holistic focus and emphasis on the integration of the four aspects of formation - human, spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral - this program offers priests and religious a unique opportunity not only for healing, but for growth in the understanding of who they truly are.

The Intensive Residential Service is an active, focused, individualized and intensive psychiatric intervention service.

While the service deals with persons who are experiencing severe deterioration in their ability to manage their life, it is not designed for individuals who might need restraints, locked units, seclusion, continuous monitoring to keep them from harming themselves, or are at a high risk for elopement.
The goal of Intensive Residential treatment is to stabilize and return the individual to their community/ diocese and outpatient treatment or to engage the person in further treatment at a lesser level of care.
This is a co-occurring disorders service for individuals who are trying to cope with both an addiction and a mental health problem. Combined clinical resources provide opportunities for a unique blend of treatment.
