Pain happens. Physical pain is something we learn to avoid at an early age. Emotional and mental pain is much different, and more difficult to get away from. Come in and discuss your possibilities. Pain happens - it doesn't have to stay.
COUNSELING FOR CHILDREN
Utilizing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Affect Regulation techniques, our trained clinicians offer children a proven way to improve their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We also work to improve or to stabilize the member’s family living environment. This includes assisting parents, guardians and family members to better understand the child's behaviors and root emotional causes. Clinicians emphasize a strengths-based perspective, focusing on the client's, and support system's, strengths and capacity for growth and development.
Children are often as confused as you are about why they act the way they do. Empowering children to gain emotional, mental, and physical control over themselves is what we do. Give the child you care about the opportunity to be in better control of their actions.
Conditions treated, include: Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, Anger, and Autism.
Clinicians trained in trauma-therapy offer a safe and secure environment to treat those who experience the lasting negative effects of trauma. Through therapeutic interventions, they work with clients to establish a greater sense of empowerment, a better understanding of automatic responses, and improved coping strategies. Clinician and client work collaboratively, with support systems, to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, generalized anxiety, self-injury, substance abuse, flashbacks, dissociation, eating disorder, revictimization, physical illness, suicide, and aggression toward others.
Intense things happen. Each and every one of us has the "worst thing that has ever happened to us." Somethings are impossible for us to be able to handle completely at the time. We learn to survive. However, what helped us to survive in the past, may be holding us back from healing. If intense pain, whether it be one instance, or many smaller ones, keeps you from living a healthier present day, come see us.
Conditions treated, include: Adult and Child Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, and Depression.
HOME & COMMUNITY TREATMENT
Home and Community Treatment (HCT) serves children with MaineCare, who need a higher level of care than Outpatient services can provide, through home and community based mental health treatment. Services will be provided by a lead Clinician, who will collaborate to develop an individualized Treatment Plan. The goals of the treatment plan will be a guidepost for the Clinician and Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) to work with the child and parent or caregiver. Driven by the Individualized Treatment Plan, individual and/or family therapy will be provided, to manage the child’s identified treatment needs and assist parents or guardians in how best to appropriately and therapeutically respond to those needs. Our intent with HCT services is to improve the environmental ecosystem for children and their families, to find healthier relationships with those in their home and community.
SECTION 28 REHABILITATIVE COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES
Section 28 Rehabilitative Community Support Services (RCS) provide treatment for MaineCare members under the age of twenty one. This treatment program is designed to serve children with a diagnosis of Autism spectrum disorder, or other intellectual or developmental disabilities. An individualized treatment plan will be developed to create specific, measurable goals to work toward in collaboration with the child’s parent or guardian. A Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) will work one-on-one with the child to develop activities for daily living along with self-awareness, environmental awareness and social appropriateness. The BHP will guide in the process of improving social skills in order to encourage healthy relationships with peers and adults.
