Co-Occurring Disorder Program

Appleseed's Co-Occurring Program is a program designed to treat both mental health and substance use disorder. This program offers:

  • Case Management to assist individuals with securing necessary supports to gain and maintain recovery, as well as teach and support the integration of key coping skills such as anger management, effective communication, and problem solving skills.
  • Individual Counseling using evidence-based practices and effective solutions to help individuals recovering from a substance use disorder. Techniques may include Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Integrated Family and Systems Treatment to help clients find recovery and maintain recovery going forward.
  • Group Support to facilitate recovery, teach coping skills, and offer therapy to support a path towards achieving sobriety and healthy living.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment to help prevent relapse and opioid/alcohol dependence as a non-addictive option to manage withdrawal symptoms as clients work with counselors and case managers to build recovery skills.

START Family Peer Mentoring

The Ashland County Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma (START) Family Peer Mentor program is a cohort of the Ohio START Program and is a collaboration between Appleseed and Ashland County Job & Family Services/Children Services (JFS). START is an evidence-based intervention program that helps families struggling with both substance abuse and child maltreatment by creating teams of caseworkers, family peer mentors and behavioral health providers to support them. 

Appleseed and JFS work together to offer Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) services for parents that have new open cases with Children Services. Appleseed's START Family Peer Mentor is located at JFS and works alongside the START children services worker at JFS and will see clients weekly (possibly more) in their home. 

About Ohio START Program

The Ohio Sobriety Treatment and Reducing Trauma (START)

START is a children-services-led initiative that has been shown, when implemented with fidelity, to improve outcomes for both parents and children affected by child maltreatment and parental substance use disorders. The model is specifically designed to transform the system of care within and between child welfare agencies and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment providers and other family serving systems and agencies. START uses a family centered approach and services that help the child, parents and the entire family. START recognizes that SUD/addiction is a family disease, recovery occurs in the context of families and adult recovery should have a parent-child component.

Ohio START emphasizes a wraparound approach for at-risk parents

This project creates an opportunity for a new best practice model designed to lead to better outcomes for children and families impacted by opiates and other drugs. The overall goal of this program is to stabilize families harmed by parental drug use so that both children and their parents can recover and move forward with abuse-free and addiction-free lives. Ohio START integrates community partners to ensure the seamless provision of wraparound services.

July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.

Forgiveness

What is forgiveness? According to the Mayo Clinic forgiveness involves “a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.”  It is not forgetting the act that hurt you. However, forgiving can lessen the offense’s hold on you and take away the remaining control the person who hurt you has on you.
