Criteria and checklist

Is U-center suitable for your patient?

Do you suspect that your patient is suffering from serious psychological problems or addiction? Is outpatient treatment no longer sufficiently intensive or effective? The following checklist will help you to determine whether your patient is eligible for clinical treatment. Your patient must have least one or more DMS-5 conditions.

Does your client suffer from or have:

  • severe depression, anxiety, trauma, somatic symptom disorder, personality disorder, eating disorder and / or addiction;
  • more than one psychological condition (comorbidity);
  • additional somatic problems;
  • social, psychological or physical dysfunction;
  • long-term or recurring complaints;
  • previous (outpatient) treatments with insufficient results;
  • an overloaded support system or unsustainable home situation;
  • a diagnostic question that can only be investigated in the clinical setting?

Is your client:

  • stuck in several areas of life;
  • in danger (suicidality, threatening psychotic decompensation, severe self-mutilation, somatic complications, complex detoxification in case of addiction, serious instability, serious vulnerability, high-risk behaviour, violence, dissociation)?

Does your client:

  • need a treatment environment that offers structure and protection;
  • need medication in a clinical environment or reduce medication?

If a combination of the above apply, your patient is probably entitled to be admitted for our inpatient treatment programme. If you are not sure, you can still refer your patient to our diagnostic center for an accurate assessment.

What else is good to know? Our programme is suitable for people who are motivated to work on their recovery. We treat adults from 18 years of age. We pay a lot of attention to resuming work, meaningful daytime activities and reintegration into society. U-center has a contract with almost all health insurers in the Netherlands and with a range of international insurers.
