Substance Use Disorder Services
Individual and group therapy will benefit those who have experienced behavioral health issues and substance use disorders. The program used is an outpatient, effective, evidence-based practice, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy curriculum, designed to assist individuals in learning skills for managing the recovery of both types of disorders, behavioral health, and substance use. This program provides education and information regarding symptoms and treatment options for various kinds of behavioral health concerns. Individuals will learn skills for changing their thinking. Using a central construct of Cognitive Restructuring, individuals engage in activities in which they learn skills for identifying thinking styles, feelings, recognizing automatic negative thoughts, and changing perceptions from negative to positive.
Individual, Family, Integrated Care & Group Therapy
Help for those with behavioral health challenges is available, including individual, group, and family therapy. We have clinicians who are office-based and housed in Primary Care offices. Our Integrated Care efforts for adults include Burke County Department Social Services (DSS) and Burke Primary Care.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group is a therapy designed to help people change destructive behavior patterns. These patterns include self-harm, suicidal thinking, and substance use. Increased emotional and cognitive regulation strategies are taught, which, in turn, assist the individual with coping skills. These skills, along with positive reinforcement, help the individual avoid undesired reactions and behaviors.
Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) Group is a strengths-based approach to recovery. Our group focuses on personal responsibility, hope, education, support, and self-advocacy, emphasizing peer support and education. Individuals are encouraged to manage their recovery in a comfortable manner and within their means.
Psychiatric Care & Medication Management
Psychiatric care and medication management assessments are available for individuals dealing with behavioral health challenges stemming from symptoms caused by their behavioral health diagnosis.
Hospital Discharge Planning
Care for adults discharging from an inpatient psychiatric facility, facility-based crisis, or detox needs the coordination of care and continued behavioral health services.
The Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) provides a comprehensive personalized treatment program for individuals with severe and persistent behavioral health illnesses. ACTT staff work with people in their home, at school, or at work, and are available 24/7. ACTT employs a team approach to help individuals with everyday basics such as taking medications and making it through the day. The team includes a psychiatrist, nurses, vocational specialists, therapists, other mental health professionals, and peer support staff to help people remain out of the hospital and living in the community.
Assertive Engagement (AE) is a community-based resource to assist adults in consistently accessing and navigating supportive services. The goal is for individuals to receive timely outreach and engagement into the most appropriate treatment.
Critical Time Intervention
Critical Time Intervention (CTI) services are time limited intensive case management services to assist individuals experiencing behavioral health issues during times of transitions. Provided as a team approach, CTI helps to decrease homelessness, emergency department visits, crisis and psychiatric services.
Transitional Management is provided to individuals participating in the Transition to Community Living Initiative (TCLI). Transitional Mangement focuses on increasing the individual’s ability to live as independently as possible, managing mental health symptoms, and re-establishing his or her community roles related to the following life domains: emotional, social, safety, housing, medical and health, educational, vocational, and legal.
The Community Support Team (CST) provides a comprehensive, personalized treatment program for individuals with moderate behavioral health issues utilizing a team approach. The CST Team offers assistance in accessing resources, reducing psychiatric & addiction symptoms, and developing community living skills.
Peer Support Services
Certified Peer Support Specialists are individuals with lived experience who now, through their own recovery, assist others with behavioral health and substance use disorders. Support is provided to individuals related to personal needs such as housing, food, healthcare, and employment.
Individual Support Services
Personal Care is a “hands-on” individualized assistance with everyday activities that are required by an individual with severe and persistent mental illness in order to live independently in the community. The service is to teach and assist individuals in carrying out daily living skills. The goal is that the
need for this support will fade over time as the individual becomes capable of performing some of these activities more independently.
