Outpatient Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder Treatment

The APT Foundation’s outpatient programming provides
comprehensive treatment for individuals with substance abuse, mental health,
and co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues. A unique open access system is in place at
all APT Foundation outpatient service locations. The program recognizes that individuals entering treatment have
different needs and varying levels of commitment to treatment. Based on information gathered during the
evaluation process, clients in collaboration with the admitting clinician
discuss and agree upon a treatment modality and frequency of attendance.
Available services include traditional outpatient, intensive outpatient,
methadone maintenance and treatment with Suboxone. Through the use of a motivational-based treatment
philosophy, clinicians work closely together to continually monitor progress on
individual recovery plans and assist clients to obtain their individual
treatment goals. Length of stay varies
based on client need and treatment modality. Groups are process oriented, designed at providing education on a
range of topics. These topics include
but are not limited to coping skills, relapse prevention, managing emotions,
biology of addiction, co-occurring disorders, goal setting, health topics, and
weekend planning. In addition to the
above topics the program offers both a Men’s Trauma and Women’s Trauma
group. In addition to providing
comprehensive group therapy program, which promotes education and discussion,
the program provides individual therapy as needed. On-site individual psychiatric services are
also available for assessment and medication management. Clients with psychiatric conditions may
benefit from medications are treated with the appropriate pharmacological
agents prescribed and monitored by appropriately licensed Medical staff. Vocational services and primary care are also
available in our outpatient programming. 

Population(s) Served

APT Residential Services Division (RSD) is a 125-bed, licensed residential substance abuse treatment facility that provides treatment to adults through our ADULT SERVICES PROGRAM. The mission of RSD is to provide residential treatment to individuals with substance use and co-occurring mental health problems accompanied by significant impairment in legal, employment/schooling, and housing/family functioning. The RSD residential programs provides a sustained treatment experience with the goal of rehabilitating multiple areas of impairment and enabling clients to become productive workers, students, family members, and law-abiding members of society. The duration, intensity, and components/ elements of this model vary depending on individual need, treatment planning, and referral source coordination processes. Family visitation and Family Support Group are offered to help facilitate open communication and reintegration. Additional psychiatric, psychological, vocational, educational, medical, and family/community-based services are provided as needed.

Population(s) Served

The APT Foundation provides primary health care services to adult clients and their families from all APT substance use and mental health treatment clinics and the greater New Haven community.  We offer medical screening, primary and preventive health care, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis education with counseling and testing, and Suboxone (Buprenorphine) maintenance.  Sick care is routinely administered along with scheduled physical exams.  In 2015 7,769 medical visits were completed. Typical health care needs for patients involve the usual substance abuse related problems of liver and kidney disease, gynecological infections, cellulitis, and abscesses from infections. In addition, the routine problems of hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity resulting from poor diets, and infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia and strep are treated. Our primary care services fills an important gap in treatment for individuals as private physicians, and many other clinics, avoid treating these patients or are not prepared to address their special service needs. Approximately 75 to 80 percent of the patients treated are insured through Charter Oak, Medicaid, and Medicare. Those with no insurance are treated  for free or on a sliding scale fee basis. Our licensed practitioners are affiliated with Yale New Haven Hospital. The office is a clinical site for medical, nurse practitioner and phlebotomy students and various medical and substance abuse research protocols. Our setting allows increased access to clients for the treatment of their substance problems and the engagement of substance users for medical care within a non-judgmental atmosphere.

Population(s) Served

During the past year the APT Foundation has been involved in a major effort to address the growing problem of overdose deaths that has been affecting our Connecticut communities as well much of the rest of the United States. The APT effort has been undertaken by increasing to 12 the number of APT clinical staff who are trained in providing specific overdose prevention and education services. The services these clinicians provide include teaching patients and their families how to recognize overdose, what to do in an overdose situation, how to manage a person(s) who is overdosing, what emergency techniques to perform to increase the survival, and how to administer the overdose prevention drug Narcan (naloxone) to reverse overdose and what to say when making a report to 911 emergency services. This training includes the provision of a “Narcan Kit” to the patient and their significant others to use in the event of an overdose. Since last summer APT Foundation has given almost 600 Narcan Kits to patients and families. We also recently participated in International Overdose Awareness/Prevention activities with a week long series of events including breakfast and lunch at all locations, “Got Narcan” T-shirts, increased treatment groups focusing on overdose prevention and kit provision, and information packets regarding the issues surrounding overdose and how to prevent it.

Population(s) Served

APT
vocational services (AVS) is comprised of four programs. Employment Specialists
in three programs: Substance Abuse, Mental Health Work Services, and Supported
Housing (3.8 FTEs) provide supported employment to those who are recovering
from substance use and or mental health disorders, including those experiencing
homelessness or who are living in transitional housing. Services delivered are
based on the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) evidence-based model
developed at Dartmouth University. The expected rate of employment is 34% of
those served. AVS averages between a 38% and 40% placement and retention rate.
The fourth program, Taking Initiative Center (TIC) (1.0 FTE) is a safe place
for those living in New Haven who are using drugs, trying to stop using, or who
are in early recovery, to spend the day. Among all four programs, approximately
219 unduplicated persons are served annually.
