Located in Shawnee, Oklahoma, Hart 4 Recovery is a small behavioral health facility that provides flexible counseling and life coaching for clients struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental illnesses. In addition to its evidence-based clinical approaches, the organization also offers holistic wellness services and life skills classes for a wide range of ancillary issues as well.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all participants go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff learn their medical history and their treatment needs. As an outpatient facility, on-site medical stabilization and detox services are not available. Once accepted into the facility’s care, participants attend a combination of group, individual and family therapy with evidence-based practices including CBT, REBT and trauma-informed care.
While the specifics may vary by client and clinician, therapy is solution-focused, client-centered and recovery-oriented, more broadly speaking. While the majority of the sessions will focus on the person’s primary issues, groups also cover a range of related topics such as financial literacy, goal setting, coping skills, stress and anger management, social skills and relapse prevention. Special programs for clients recovering from trauma are available as well. Basic dual diagnosis support and medication management services are provided, though anyone in need of more intensive psychiatric or medical care may need to seek additional help elsewhere. While 12-step participation may be encouraged in some cases, it is not always required.
The staff at Hart 4 Recovery consists of case managers, life coaches, integrated wellness clinicians (certified BHCMs at Levels I, II and III), LPCs and additional Master’s-level counselors.
Though all programs are flexible and can be made to suit each client’s needs, the organization also offers special treatment plans that zero in on specific issues. Among these are the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), a person-centered approach to overcoming distress from negative situations—this is available for trauma, addiction, mental illness and adolescent issues. Similarly, the Wellness Self-Management (WSM) plan is an evidence-based program stressing the mind-body connection for adults with more severe addictions and mental illness, focusing on trigger identification and relapse prevention.
Standalone family psychoeducational groups are also offered. Finally, those who complete a primary care regimen can also work with the staff members to develop personalized discharge and aftercare plans.
Overall, Hart 4 Recovery is an intimate but robust outpatient-based counseling facility with programs available for a wide variety of needs. In addition to its evidence-based and cognitive approaches, the facility also offers a host of life skills classes and wellness workshops to treat clients from a range of perspectives, all emphasizing holistic health. Although anyone in need of more intensive psychiatric or medical support may need to find additional care as well, Hart 4 Recovery remains a strong resource, particularly due to its relatively underserved location.
