HBH Counseling provides several counseling options for our clients. Each format has it's benefits and limitations but all are helpful and based on current best practices and evidenced based counseling theories. For many individuals, a combination of therapy types is most beneficial.
Substance Use Treatment
The Better Alternative Program
More people have insurance today than ever before, allowing them to finally have access to the mental health care they deserve. However, the cost of care can still be prohibitive, especially at the higher levels of care. The time required to stabilize clients often leaves them without insurance benefits to adequately cover the step down process. Additionally, many of the newly insured are unable to take time off from work or childcare to be able to remain in treatment.
In response to these needs, HBH Counseling has developed The Better Alternative program – an outpatient based treatment program for individuals with mental health and trauma related disorders, substance use and other addictive behavior disorders, and co-occurring disorders. Currently, the program is limited to adults (minimum age 18 years old and having completed high school) but we are developing an adolescent track to begin by January 2017.
What it is...
The Better Alternative program is a treatment plan truly custom tailored to each client's needs and schedules. After completing a comprehensive intake assessment, each client is presented with a plan integrating individual, group, couples, and family therapy that takes into consideration their identified mental health, scheduling, and financial needs and constraints. We offer our groups as individual sessions as well for clients who are a little shy. Clients are able to attend between 2 and 6 sessions per week, depending on their insurance plan, with different therapists on the treatment teams. If medication is involved or needed, we coordinate with a client's current prescriber or help the client find a prescriber who is in network or has affordable fees.
