Safe Haven Behavioral Health is an outpatient treatment program for people who are homeless, or who have been incarcerated, and are unable to attend regular clinic visits. The program uses proven strategies to intervene with these youth and help them become self-sufficient. Clinicians trained in the industry standard Pathways approach meet with clients every week in structured and open discussions. Clients usually participate for nine to twelve months and receive appropriate aftercare services.
Nonviolent Crisis Intervention
Safe Haven Behavioral Health's In-Home Therapy Program and Children's Outpatient Program offer nonviolent crisis intervention for children. It's based on the belief that the parent-child connection is the most powerful mental health intervention. Our team includes a licensed mental health counselor and a senior-level CPI Certified Instructor. Our goal is to provide a bridge between clinical expertise and the best practices of Nonviolent Crisis Intervention (r) training.
Nonviolent Crisis Intervention is a behavior management system that is proven to be safe and effective. It helps human service workers provide the highest level of care to their clients by emphasizing prevention, de-escalation, and physical intervention.
Safe Haven Behavioral Health provides trauma-informed care to clients who have been exposed to traumatic events. Trauma-informed care has been shown to create greater safety and prevent further consequences of traumatic stress. While many individuals do not recognize the need to explore their histories, trauma-informed care allows them to do so in a safe and supportive environment. These individuals can explore how their past experiences impact their current behavior and how they can adapt creatively to cope.
Although the trauma-informed approach may be effective for many clients, it is important to recognize that not all clients want to receive this type of treatment. Some clients believe they have dealt with their trauma and may not need treatment. They may also be unable to connect the trauma to their current challenges.
Housing First/Harm Reduction Approaches
Housing First/Harm Reduction approach combines the principles of prevention and early intervention to address the root causes of substance use. In this model, housing is first provided, followed by support to address physical, mental, and substance abuse issues, and community connections. The goal is to prevent the development of addiction, which is a leading cause of homelessness.
Housing First is a treatment approach that offers immediate access to permanent housing to a patient. It does not require sobriety or abstinence to qualify, and participation is voluntary. However, this approach does run counter to the concept of treatment first.
