What Is Treatment
Treatment provides a safe therapeutic space for individuals to address substance abuse and mental health disorders in a structured environment with the help of trained, certified and licensed professionals.
Depending on the treatment setting and amount of support needed, the treatment episode may include BioPyschoSocial Assessment, Physical and Mental Stabilization with Psychiatric/Medical care, Medication Evaluation and Management, Creation of a Treatment Plan, Individual Therapy, Group Therapies, Psycho-Education, Behavioral Therapies, Emotional Support, Peer Support, Skill Building and Case Management.
These are provided by an interdisciplinary team of professionals, known as a Treatment Team. A Treatment Team is a group of healthcare professionals who work together towards the common goal of the client.
Prior to engaging in any form on treatment, individuals must first partake in a thorough psychosocial assessment. During these assessments, an individual’s history is reviewed, including presenting symptoms and the way in which those symptoms have impacted his or her ability to function on a daily basis. Additionally, one’s physical and psychological background, treatment history and substance use history will be reviewed in order to obtain a more detailed understanding of client needs. Once this assessment is reviewed by clinical staff, will then determine what the most appropriate level of care will be in order for the individual’s needs to be met and the client to stay safe and sober.
