Treatment and Staff
CNS provides psychiatric evaluations, counseling and education, case management, medication administration and review, and pharmacy and laboratory services. Mental health and chemical dependency are treated concurrently.
The facility takes an integrated approach, assigning each client to a care team of medical and behavioral health professionals with whom they work during the course of treatment. An individualized treatment plan is determined at an initial meeting. Clients are required to meet with their assigned doctor and case manager at least once a month. Detox is not offered, but Suboxone can be prescribed for opioid recovery. Persons with co-occurring mental illness can be evaluated and treated as part of the program.
In addition to substance abuse counseling, group therapy and case management, the array of services offered here is astounding: Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment (IDDT), Family Psycho-education, Consumer-run Drop-in Centers, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), Smoking Cessation Assistance, Personal Action Towards Health (PATH), Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), Psychiatric Nursing Services, Individual Placement and Supports, Family Support, Clubhouses, Community Education, Community Living Supports, Trauma-Informed Service Delivery, Children’s Services, Anti-Stigma Programs, Mental Health First Aid and Crisis Services. The modalities are suggested by staff, but clients have input and make the final decision about their treatment and the family psycho-education takes place twice a month for clients and their family members. These sessions are conducted by professional trained staff and typically go on for about a year. CNS is not 12-step affiliated.
The staff at CNS includes psychiatrists, case managers, nurse practitioners and nurses, CADCs, therapists and pharmacists, all of whom have years of experience providing treatment and assistance for mental disorders, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. Psychotherapy is administered by certified and licensed Master’s-level counselors and psychologists who work in both group and individual sessions.
On the second Wednesday of each month from 6 to 7 pm, the Family Education and Support Group meets to address myriad topics relevant to recovery. These sessions are free of charge and often feature guest speakers. They’re also open to the public.
A range of community education workshops are also offered to clients and family members on subjects such as mental health, borderline personality disorder, time and stress management, positive thinking, gender socialization and total wellness.
Special language services provide assistance for the hearing impaired. Interpreter services are available for other languages.
Community Network Services is a unique network of facilities in that it provides integrated services to clients with both mental illnesses and co-occurring substance abuse or alcoholism issues. As such, individuals considering CNS will likely benefit from a care team of professionals working collaboratively to manage a client’s mental illness in addition to achieving recovery.
