Treatment and Staff
Upon beginning treatment at FUNB, clients must undergo an initial evaluation to determine a proper level of care. Once approved for enrollment, each participant is assigned to a therapist who helps them develop an individualized treatment plan. Those in need of medication management services are given referrals upon request.
Duration of treatment and frequency of individual therapy varies from client to client, though typically all attend two 50-minute sessions a week. Topics discussed in these sessions include anger management, co-occurring disorders, relapse prevention, the disease of addiction, coping skills, anger management, depression and anxiety. Aside from therapy, participation in a 12-step program is also encouraged. Staff members can provide clients with meeting directories upon request though attendance of AA/NA meetings is not strictly required. The team at FUNB includes LPCs, MFTs and psychologists.
FUNB also offers marriage and family therapy with MFTs who address issues such as divorce, domestic violence, parenting skills and communication. These services are available as a la carte options, though clients enrolled in outpatient can also invite their family members or loved ones to participate in therapy with them.
Anger management classes are offered through a 52 week structured program. During classes, a facilitator focuses on teaching adults how to maintain control and recognize triggers that can lead to violent behavior. Each individual engaged in the program is provided a workbook, weekly assignments and is asked to participate in the activities of the program.
Domestic violence prevention classes and parenting classes are held on a weekly basis. Classes are educational and discussion based with homework assigned in hopes of reinforcing topics. The DV program is approved by the Los Angeles County Probation Department. Individual sessions are scheduled as needed.
