Treatment and Staff
BHcare offers a variety of outpatient treatments such as individual and group therapy, substance abuse education, dual diagnosis support and medication management. Depending on the client, some combination of these services may be recommended or they will be referred to the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program, which includes all of the above. Following an initial evaluation that takes a person’s biological, psychological, environmental and social needs into account, an individualized treatment plan is developed. BHcare does not offer detox but they can provide referrals, if necessary.
The IOP program offers a high level of support, with four specialized tracks to choose from: DBT skills training, dual diagnosis, symptom management and substance abuse. This program meets three to five days a week, for three-hour sessions. Usually, a treatment plan is mapped out to span a period of eight to 12 weeks total. Most of the treatment consists of group therapy, with topics including mental health, relapse prevention, coping skills, trauma and anger management. Individual therapy is offered once a week with the client’s primary therapist.
The beauty of this program is that they offer comprehensive dual diagnosis support. With a team that includes CSACs, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses, intense therapy in combination with medication management is provided.
