Substance Abuse

A Road Not Taken — Very successful, data-rich, documented Substance Abuse program featuring over 70 program hours. Program options include workbooks or individual lessons in a structured, stages-of-change-based, CBT-based group model  developed specifically for the Rikers Island jails in New York City (male, female, and Spanish versions available). The success of this program at Riker's Island has been strong and sustained.  Whether you are a jail or a prison, this program is a proven-effective substance abuse solution.   [Read more!]

30 Hour Open Group Model — Comprehensive 30-session, open group substance abuse program featuring a creative new approach: new members can be added to the group at any point, while the outcome-driven model provides tools, structure, and support for individual progress and change.  State-of-the-art substance abuse programming shaped for flexible administration and structured for results.

This easy to implement turnkey model includes complete resources for 30 group sessions, one-on-one counseling, and support in documenting participation, progress, and outcomes.  Core program elements address internal and external risk factors for past problems and guide the development of effective relapse prevention plans.  The materials guide participants from pre-contemplation through subsequent stages of change.

Behavioral Health (inpatient, intensive outpatient, and community programs)

Comprehensive Symptoms Management Curriculum — Specifically designed for the most serious and persistent mental illness, this easy-to-implement new curriculum is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI change model), social learning theory (skills modeling, practice, and mastery), and selected Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills.  Based on a program at use at Riker’s Island Jails, this comprehensive, 50-hour program addresses a variety of common symptoms as well as specific overlays for Psychotic Spectrum and Mood Disorder symptoms.

The program makes a clear connection between client changes (med compliance and new coping skills) and feeling better (symptom frequency, intensity, and duration).  It includes critical overlays for self-injury and anger/aggression/violence, along with a comprehensive set of skills for interpersonal competence.  An emphasis on Situational Confidence in facing high-risk situations addresses acting out behaviors, with specific tools including Situational Confidence Questionnaires.
