ACCESS TO RECOVERY (ATR) ………………………………………………………………………………………………….
ATR is a federally funded program that provides services to individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder.  Because every person and their recovery is different, a key component to the ATR program is “choice”.  With ATR, the individual receiving the service choose what services they want to receive from a variety of network providers.

ATR services are available for individuals who meet the following criteria:
*An Iowa resident
*12 years of age or older
*At or below 200% of the federal poverty level guidelines
*Screen positive for possible substance use disorder

The goal of ATR is to assist individuals while they’re working a program of recovery by reducing barriers and obstacles often experienced.  ATR does this by funding what are known as Recovery Support Services.

These include:
*Co-pays
*Supplemental Needs
*Transportation

COMMUNITY SUPPORT PROGRAMS …………………………………………………………………………………………
CBHS offers three support programs to assist mental health patients in their recovery journey.
The Community Support Program (CSP) program is designed for seriously mentally ill individuals. The CSP program helps individuals reduce and manage their symptoms and limitations, and move toward stability and full participation in the community. CSP is provided by CBHS staff in the agency group setting.

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY  (DBT) …………………………………………………………………………………
DBT or Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence based treatment program designed for those who struggle with managing intense emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger. The program uses a combination of weekly individual therapy sessions and a weekly DBT skills group to assist individuals in reducing a variety of problems that result from difficulty in regulating their emotions.

The DBT skills group is an educational therapy group which focuses on increasing the client’s skills in the following areas:

1)  Mindfulness
2)  Interpersonal Effectiveness
3)  Emotion Regulation
4)  Distress Tolerance

Within the DBT group setting, clients are introduced to a new skill from one of the four areas each week and are encouraged to practice the skills during the week in a variety of situations in their own lives. The group then offers the client a place to discuss the difficulties and successes they had in using the new skill. The group also offers a supportive atmosphere where the client can feel safe sharing their daily struggles with managing their emotions and relationships. All clients who take part in the DBT group are also involved in weekly individual therapist to work on personal therapy issues.

PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION THERAPY (PCIT) …………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

HOW CAN THIS THERAPY SUPPORT FAMILIES?

Parent-child interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an intensive treatment program that helps both parents and children.  This therapy helps parents or caregivers learn positive and supportive way to communicate with their children, thus enhancing their relationships.  It also provides parents or caregivers the tools to help manage ay child’s behavioral problems.
As part of this program, the therapist coaches the parent using positive, nonjudgmental language during live play sessions between the parent and child.

TREATMENT CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS:

 

CHILD-DIRECT INTERACTION (CDI) …………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Parents learn specific skills designed to strengthen their bonds with their children.  Parents are taught to ignore annoying behaviors while learning to prevent and /or manage destructive or dangerous behaviors.

Skills include:

Praising   \   Reflecting  \  Embracing the joy of play  \  Imitating  \  Describing

Parent-Directed Interaction (PDI)

Parents learn appropriate skills to manage the child’s behavior.

Skills include:

Giving proper commands  \  Using research based time out procedures  \  Providing labeled praise and reinforcement when the child does as directed

What is the time investment for this therapy?

PCIT is a short-term intervention.  The length of treatment depends on the frequency and consistency of the therapy sessions.  Graduation from the program is based on mastering the parenting and management skills, so the time frame may vary from family to family.  The parent and child will continue to participate in the program until the family’s goals are met.

Proven to be successful

Parent-Child Interactive Therapy is an exceptionally effective treatment that is backed by over 20 years of research.  This training has also shown to be effective for behavior in school and with siblings who haven’t been involved in treatment.  Crossroads Behavioral Health Services’ skilled therapists have completed more than 60 hours of training in providing Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.
