A thorough clinical assessment identifies the person's strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. Staff use this information to formulate an individualized service plan (ISP) that guides the treatment process from beginning to end. Methods used to treat substance abuse and mental health disorders include researched-based curricula and/or clinically proven approaches including motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy, and brief solution-oriented treatment. Our Psychiatric Health Services are provided in our sites by M.D. Psychiatrists or by Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners face to face or by using "Tele-Psychiatry" which is state of the art private communication technology. Tele-psychiatry is the application of Telemedicine to the field of Psychiatry. It has been the most successful of all the telemedicine applications so far. Participants meet in a private office where they can see and speak to their Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on a private monitor much like a large TV screen. Our staff work with the participant and if necessary with family members to make each tele-mental health session, personable, comfortable, and beneficial.
The Recovery Opportunity Center “ROC” is a 23-hour Living Room Model crisis program that provides a cool down for immediate and unscheduled behavioral health services in response to an individual’s behavioral health issue to prevent imminent harm or to stabilize or resolve an acute behavioral health issue. At the ROC we treat each person like a guest in our Living Room, offering hospitality. The program serves adults who are 18 and older, who are seriously mentally ill, may have a substance use problem, or another mental health disorder. The ROC offers services such as a place to take a shower, get water when it hot, warm up when it’s cold, someone to speak with when you are feeling down. A place to “sleep it off” that is safe. Able to provide crisis services in the least restrictive environment (not forced to stay). A place for everyone to be treated with respect and dignity.
