BAFS utilizes biopsychosocial methods of assessment and treatment planning. Treatment approaches incorporate cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, 12-step, and developmental models of recovery. Our approach is designed to be client-centered with particular attention to the spiritual and diverse cultural components of recovery. Our trauma informed approach also includes key principles outlined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration; safety, trustworthiness and transparency, peer support, collaboration and mutuality, empowerment voice and choice. A value and spirit of cultural humility and inclusivity is modeled by BAFS staff and environments.
We use Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy and Seeking Safety. We also use Contingency Management. Incentive based programs are highly successful and it is motivating to encourage positive behavior with incentives. In the latest SAMHSA TIP 33, federal researchers have identified CM as the most effective approach for stimulant dependent individuals, superior to any other approach.
