Treatment and Staff
Treatment at MHP is at the standard outpatient level of care in which clients attend group therapy once or twice a week and have individual therapy as-needed. The duration of treatment plans is customized to each client after their assessment, but most plans last at least three months.
Therapy groups usually have 10 to 12 participants and are led by Master’s-level therapists and addiction counselors such as MSWs and CADCs. The foundation of therapy is CBT and the treatment team also encourages clients to attend 12-step meetings outside of treatment. Schedules and nearby meeting locations are furnished upon request. The Seeking Safety curriculum is also used in gender-specific groups for women who have suffered trauma. All substance abuse clinicians at MHP are also trained in EMDR to help with trauma treatment.
MHP’s treatment team also includes two psychiatrists who support clients with co-occurring disorders. Clients with mental health diagnoses may also access other members of MHP’s Behavioral Health team.
Mahaska Health Partnership provides customized evidence-based treatment plans for outpatient substance abuse treatment. With Seeking Safety groups and EMDR-trained clinicians, Mahaska Health Partnership may be an especially strong option for those whose substance abuse is impacted by traumatic events in their pasts.
