  • The Ins and Outs of Network Participation

    More insurers are reducing their health plan offerings for PPO options in favor of HMOs. At the same time, they’re looking to disincentivize enrollee access to out-of-network providers.

  • Family Education & Support: Engaging the Whole Family in Treatment

    Mental illness and addiction are chronic brain diseases that affect the whole family. Research has demonstrated that family treatment improves recovery rates. Individuals and families who experience co-occurring disorders who participate in behavioral family therapy develop coping skills, improve communication and problem solving skills. Every family member has goals and enters into their own recovery.

  • The Wounded Warrior: Caring for the Invisible Wounds of War

    The lifetime prevalence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) ranges from 5-20% of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, and it is the third most prevalent psychiatric diagnosis among veterans using the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals.

  • A Clinical Introduction to Payer Guidelines

    Behavioral healthcare is a rapidly growing field with many new programs opening and existing centers expanding. Additionally, access to care is increasing. Concurrent with this growth, however, has been a disconnect with understanding private insurance payer guidelines from a clinical perspective.

  • Connect with Elite Motivation: Fuel Healthier Attitudes, Actions & Achievements

    Too often in therapy, change is defeated by our traditional reliance on IQ. Typically, we emphasize passive IQ knowledge over the more active EQ, or emotional quotient. EQ is the essential factor needed to apply knowledge to change unhealthy reactive patterns. After all, feelings are what drives thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. Clients often know what to do, but they just don’t follow through, which is where Elite Motivation comes into play. Elite Motivation is EQ-in-motion, increasing a client’s drive, emotional resilience and choice.

  • Borderline Personality Disorder & Addiction

    Borderline personality disorder is seen frequently in addiction treatment settings. Because of the high risk of disruption and suicidality, special techniques are needed to properly care for these individuals. This presentation will take a closer look at the clinical and practical treatment strategies.

  • Is the Cart Before the Horse: Failure to Launch and Substance Use Disorders

    It may be time to question the current traditional treatment of substance use disorders and whether or not the efficacy of treatment of young adults could be increased by taking a more collaborative and developmental stance. Failure to launch is epidemic in young adults and, in most cases, co-occuring with a substance use disorder.
