Elapop provides immediate help to individuals and families undergoing intense stress. During periods of acute physical and emotional turmoil, people often feel overwhelmed and incapable of dealing with the situation. Clients or/and may not be able to wait for a clinician or hospital appointment, or they may not know where to turn.
One form of crisis intervention is provided by 24 hours walk-in services, in our rehab centre, where individual receives immediate attention. There, are clinician and therapist helps to clarify the problem, provides reassurance, suggest or plan of action, and mobilizes the support of other MDT members, agencies or family members.
This kind of treatment is usually short-term and provides the support the person requires to handle the crisis at hand. Such short-term intervention often prevents the need for hospitalization.
Also, we have developed some form of special intervention to help who are undergoing period of neuropathy problems and severe stress, as well as specialized therapeutic method to deal with stroke, diabetic drug dependency, alcohol abuse, child abuse, rape victims, battered wives and runaways.
The provision of services for youth on drug and alcohol misuse, adolescents with mental health problems and adult with general health problems is a concern. Therefore, at Elapop rehab centre, we are working with Ekiti Youth Focus Initiatives (NGO), NDLEA Ekiti, Kaduna and Kwara state, representatives of users and carers and all Ekiti and Kwara Local Government Councils in collaboration with their State Government, to develop a strategy to ensure access to effective specialist services and preventative interventions.
