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.

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.

START Family Peer Mentoring

The Ashland County START Family Peer Mentor program is a cohort of the Ohio START Program and is a collaboration between Appleseed and Ashland County Job and Family Services/Children Services. START stands for Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma.  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 Ashland County Job and Family Services 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 works alongside the START children services worker at JFS and will see clients weekly (possibly more) in their home. The main office for this program is located at Ashland County Job and Family Services.

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.

Mental Health Spring Cleaning

Spring is here. As we watch the crocus poke through the ground and enjoy more and more daylight, it's a good time to recommit ourselves to our mental health care. Do some mental health spring cleaning. Identify a habit that prevents you from being your best. It could be the habit of criticizing others or negative self-talk. Whatever it is, commit yourself to being self-aware and to quickly replacing the behavior with a healthy alternative. Plan ahead and be ready. Speak a word of praise instead of criticism or replace negativity with encouragement. With a steady effort, you can change that habit that is holding you back.

Wellness and Recovery

One of the things that can raise our anxiety is how we choose to think about our problems. In our modern culture we see our stressors as bad and something to be avoided. Previous generations took the position that our adversities are things that teach us life lessons and make us stronger. So let me encourage us today to examine the circumstances we are in and begin to ask “what can I learn about myself from this?” How can I use these stressors to make me a better person? By doing this I can make what was causing me anxiety into something that gives me strength.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is sexual assault awareness month. The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network reports that every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault can range from harassment to direct physical sexual abuse. Everyone has a role to play in preventing sexual assault. There are many different ways that you can step in or make a difference if you see someone at risk. The key to keeping others safe is learning how to intervene in a way that fits the situation and your comfort level. Do what you can to interrupt the situation. A simple distraction can give the person at risk a chance to get to a safe place.
