Treatment and Staff
Most of the work is conducted in a group setting, using psychodynamic therapy guided by highly trained counselors. The programs available at this facility are chemical dependency, behavioral health, mental health and responsible gaming. Potential clients must undergo an initial assessment in order to decipher which program and plan is best suited for them. Group sizes vary, ranging from 10-20 clients at a time. On-site detox is not available.
The chemical dependency track offers both Intensive Outpatient Outpatient (IOP) and outpatient services. The eight-week IOP program meets three times a week, for three hours. During this time, clients partake in one individual session per week, in addition to structured group therapy. Group topics include nutrition, substance abuse education, family dynamics, emotional health, meditation, trauma and coping skills.
Clients are exposed to The Red Road to Wellbriety, a Native American version of AA. These teachings reference the Big Book, blending Native American tradition with the principles of the 12 steps. While this program is not 12 step-based, local meeting recommendations can be made.
Once IOP has been completed, clients can transition into the outpatient program. This track runs for 8-16 weeks, meeting once a week for three hours. The structure is similar to that of IOP, but there is a greater focus on relapse prevention, helping clients to manage stress as issues pop up in their everyday lives.
The staff includes certified substance abuse and chemical dependency counselors and several Master’s-level social workers.
The behavioral health program helps individuals with stress, family, grief, parenting, relationships, careers, domestic violence and spiritual issues. Groups are set up to address these issues in a safe setting, meeting on a weekly basis.
The mental health program addresses issues such as loss, grief, sexual assault, child abuse, addiction and other emotional issues. Help for these issues can be found in a group setting or one-on-one during individual therapy.
The responsible gaming program offers weekly psycho-educational groups in a safe setting. Clients are able to identify triggers and learn new ways of coping with their emotions. In addition, educational training for organizations and community awareness is available to help inform group members on the growing risks of problem gambling.
A tobacco cessation program is also available.
Camas Path BHS treats a wide variety of ailments, using psychotherapy to help clients overcome their struggles. With this program being specific to Kalispel tribe members, Native American traditions and spirituality is weaved into the program. While this is not 12-step based, the 12 steps do manage to come through in the form of the Red Road to Wellbriety. Overall, this program aims to help clients rehabilitate from all angles.
