At the Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board, Partners in Recovery's Assertive Community Treatment offers an outreach service for people with a serious mental illness or substance abuse who need services outside an office setting.
The program also offers a co-occurring disorders program to provide short term treatment for adults who require both comprehensive psychiatric and addiction evaluation and stabilization of their psychiatric symptoms and substance abuse. The program is uniquely designed to offer a comprehensive approach, integrating mental health and addition treatment in a single program design. A team model of treatment emphasizes assessment, brief treatments and crisis intervention, clinical case management and the initiation of rehabilitation.
Members of the treatment team integrate psychotherapy, medication management (if indicated), relapse prevention and life skills training with 12-step recovery, crisis intervention, and social developmental orientations to support participants in achieving their goal.
The Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board integrates the treatment of substance use disorders with behavioral health therapies to form the Next Step Day Treatment Program. Combining the resources of both fields results in a dynamic program capable of addressing the needs of consumers having one or several diagnoses, such as those individuals with alcohol or drug dependence or simple depression or anxiety, and those individuals with addiction or multiple substances also suffering from bi-polar disorder, depression, PTSD, or compulsive behaviors. The disorders may be independent of each other, yet they invariably influence each other to some degree.
Scott County Mental Health Center offers programs that provide a therapeutic environment for individuals who have acute or chronic mental or emotional disturbances, who do not require full-time hospital care but who can benefit from a structured environment for some portion of the day or week.
The Crisis Support telephone number is 276-452-1144.
