Minerva Park Behavioral Health programming is based on each individual's assessed needs that were determined during assessment. The length of each client's personal program is based on the need of the individual. The completion date is dependent upon the client's investment in treatment and is subject to change dependent upon that investment and adherence to the program.
Minerva Park Behavioral Health provides one-on-one counseling that is individualized to each person’s unique problems and goals.
Counselors blend evidence-based therapies such as Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Counselors develop rapport and prioritize the importance of empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard of each person served.
Group counseling helps people improve their connection with others, learn skills to improve relationships, and gain insight into problems and solutions to problems.
Similar to the concept of small class-sizes in school, Minerva Park Behavioral Health is committed to high quality by maintaining small group sizes run by effective, engaging counselors. Some of the groups our residents will receive include,
Therapeutic Mindfulness Groups:
Those who are new in Recovery often experience Past trauma, depression, anxiety, and stress. The purpose of the group is to promote physical and emotional health by group facilitator leading relaxation technique, stretching, deep breathing, guided imagery, meditation, and other mindfulness activities. The group is designed to practice stress and anxiety reduction techniques while fostering a positive start to the day.
Gender specific psychoeducational groups are designed to promote the holistic wellness of the female body. Psychoeducational groups focus on education women about their disorders as well as specific ways to cope and heal. They will educate the clients about substance use disorders and the related behaviors and consequences. The groups will include, but are not limited to learning about the biopsychosocial disease model of addiction, recovery processes, stages of change, the effects of drugs and alcohol on the female brain and body, as well as healthy living skills such as STD awareness, healthy eating habits, and physical and mental health care. The major purpose is the expansion of awareness that will help them establish and maintain abstinences and guide them to more productive choices in their lives.
Cognitive Behavioral Groups:
The clinician provides a structured and safe environment within which group members can examine the behaviors, thoughts, and beliefs that lead to their maladaptive behaviors without judgment or shame. These groups will focus on gender specific PTSD and trauma, codependency, boundaries, shame vs. guilt, anger managements and conflict resolution, relapse prevention and spirituality. Cognitive-behavioral groups work to change learned behavior by changing things patterns, beliefs, and perceptions. The groups also work to develop social networks that support continues abstinence so the woman becomes aware of behaviors that may lead to relapse as well as develop strategies to prevent such relapses. Changing cognitions and beliefs is proven to help lead to greater opportunities to maintain sobriety and live more productively.
Adult Life Skills:
When people come into recovery, a lot of times they have never been taught the skills necessary to be a successful, contributing member or society. These groups will equip them with the necessary skills to promote successful independent living once leaving the residential program. They will cover areas such as time management, basic first aid and safety, cooking and food preparation, budgeting and banking, smart shopping, personal hygiene, keeping a clean and organized living environment, resume building and interview skills, and workforce development.
Minerva Park staff provide quality case management services to people in treatment. We believe that people are capable of taking back control of their lives once they achieve abstinence and begin their recovery.
Case management is provided to help people begin to better address the basic human needs of themselves and their families. Linkage to primary health care, dental care, vocational services, and housing resources assist people in beginning to live complete, meaningful, and happy lives.
Minerva Park Behavioral Health provides crisis intervention for people experiencing a crisis related to addiction or substance abuse. Our counselors have special training to assist people in addressing the crisis promptly.
This includes assisting a person in identifying helpful resources, referring people to appropriate services, and helping them identify and use their internal resources to avoid relapse and improve their overall stability.
When the crisis has been addressed and resolved, people return to a focus on the goals and objectives of the treatment plan.
