The Way Out Recovery Hour – October 30, 2017
On this episode of The Way Out Recovery SCV Hour, host Bob Sharits welcomes licensed marriage & family therapist Charity Wabuke of the Child & Family Center to discuss the new Drug Medi-Cal Waiver, as well as some new and innovative programs in treatment.
The Child & Family recently was granted the ability to create a new program, The Drug Medi-Cal program for adolescents and young adults, Wabuke said. We can now help assist those who are 12-17 years old and 18-25.
Traditionally treatment would be group driven however because of the new changes that went into effect this year, solo treatments are able to happen and more people are being able to get the help they need.
The outpatient program is for adolescents and young adults with primary substance use disorders. The highly-structured program is thoroughly designed and engineered with planned topics and sequencing for each session and phase of treatment.
The program at the Child & Family Center encompasses:
• Individual Therapy (Assessment, Treatment Planning, Relapse Prevention)
• Group Services
• Patient Education
• Family Therapy
• Collateral Services
• Crisis Services (if needed)
• Case Management
• Aftercare Services
