Since 1978, Inland Behavioral and Health Services (IBHS) has provided comprehensive medical and mental health services to residents of the Inland Empire region of Southern California. Headquartered in San Bernardino where there are three facilities, IBHS also has a branch in Banning. The North E Street location houses two distinct outpatient programs; the Westside Counseling Center for youth, men and women and the Perinatal Care Network (PCN)—a program for mothers with substance use disorders and their children.
Treatment and Staff
After admission to the PCN, mothers are required to attend psycho-education classes and group therapy four times a week for four hours each session. Clients are also scheduled for individual therapy as-needed. The duration of the program is six months, but clinicians can ask the state to extend treatment for up to an additional three months if they think it is in the client’s best interests. The average stay in the program is eight months.
Group therapy uses the techniques from the evidence-based Matrix Model. Women also work through Hazelden’s Living in Balance curriculum. Classes explore topics such as the effects of addiction, nutrition and relapse prevention. Groups are intimate, with most having fewer than 10 participants. Additionally, clients are required to attend three 12-step meetings each week—one of which may be an on-site AA/NA meeting.
The extensive treatment team at PCN includes physicians, LCSWs, LPCs and addiction counselors including CADCs. Clients with dual diagnosis receive referrals to IBHS’s mental health department for additional therapy and medication management.
Childcare is provided while women attend treatment and they regularly meet with a perinatal therapist who assesses the needs of the children and offers parenting techniques. Therapists also allow family members to attend therapy sessions if the client desires.
Clients can enroll in CalWORKS, an employment-readiness program for those in recovery. IBHS PCN offers extensive referrals to community agencies, including Welfare/WIC services. Once clients have completed treatment in the PCN, they can apply for outpatient treatment at IBHS’s Westside Counseling Center if they desire additional recovery support.
Inland Behavior and Health Services Perinatal Care Network provides an extensive range of services supporting women and their children. By offering over 16 hours of substance abuse treatment each week, clients struggling with addiction are given the opportunity to learn new life skills and create a peer-support network as a result of its 12-step meeting requirement. The program’s childcare services and parenting support also ensure that the addict’s children are nurtured while their mother strengthens her sobriety.
