Earthquakes and infrastructure damage pose challenges to disaster management (2,3). Psychiatric sequelae are common; however, psychiatric interventions aimed at inducing a better sense of control among survivors have been shown to improve behavioral outcomes for earthquake survivors (4). ADHCs are state regulated and have multidisciplinary treatment teams, including physicians, nurses, certified nursing assistants, physical and occupational therapists, psychotherapists, social workers, and activity specialists (2). ADHCs are equipped for concrete problem solving (finding shelter for displaced persons, securing basic needs, and managing disputes), and they offer a platform for medical and psychiatric care, thus helping to engender a sense of control among survivors (5). No guidelines outline a specialized role for ADHCs in disaster management plans, but our experience points to a role for ADHCs in community disaster response.
