WestBridge utilizes evidence-based practices to provide treatment to men and families that experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders in both residential and outpatient settings. Dual diagnosis outpatient treatment at WestBridge is referred to as Care Management, and is offered in both our New Hampshire and Florida locations.
At WestBridge, the Care Management team is the single point of clinical responsibility for each participant in our outpatient treatment program, and is accountable for assisting him in achieving his goals for recovery. Care Managers work with each participant and his family to set goals, create an integrated dual diagnosis treatment plan, and provide direct services to assist them in maximizing their recovery. All services are highly individualized; each participant’s Personalized Achievement Agenda is modified as needed through ongoing assessment and treatment planning.
Community-Based Dual Diagnosis Outpatient Treatment
Family members often carry the burden of providing crisis intervention, support with daily activities, transportation, and other tasks associated with their loved one’s daily routine.
Our dual diagnosis, outpatient Care Management treatment teams work to relieve families of these duties and help them to restore their natural relationships. Care Managers provide assistance to WestBridge participants in the following ways:
- Physical Health
- Medical Care & Medication Support
- Vocational Counseling & Career Development
- Housing Maintenance & Stability
- Financial Management
- Integrated Substance Abuse & Mental Health Counseling
- Self-Help Group Identification & Accompaniment
- Family Education & Support
- Symptom Management
- Recreation & Leisure Activities
- Coordination of Services with Other Providers
ACT as part of our Outpatient Treatment Program
WestBridge’s dual diagnosis outpatient treatment program utilizes the Care Management program, which is based on the extensively researched Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model. ACT is an evidence-based practice specifically designed for men who experience frequent episodes of severe symptoms that are difficult to manage, or which never go away. ACT teams have demonstrated to reduce the number of hospital stays and increase an individuals’ ability to remain active in their community.
Mentoring at WestBridge
In addition to working with a team of Care Managers, WestBridge participants work with Mentors who augment the Assertive Community Treatment program by providing support during evening hours in the community, as well as for other daily living activities as needed.
