The ReDCo Group team of professionals embrace evidence-based treatment models. Select models are tapped based on appropriateness with consideration of consumer needs. Evidence-based programs are techniques proven effective and which offer implementation guidance to staff. The outcomes, or success of individual treatment models, are well documented and have been closely scrutinized to insure optimal return on investment.
Two specific evidence-based programs used by the ReDCo Group Behavioral Health Services in the Pocono Region include:
- Illness Management and Recovery
- Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model
IMR — Illness Management and Recovery: Recovery-based group workshops provide hands on daily living skills development to adult consumers ages 18 and older. New Vision group leaders utilize this evidence-based program to empower individual consumers and engage each in taking ownership of their personal recovery. Voluntary participation in these psycho-education groups and homework assignments offer adult opportunities to practice coping skills and reduce the risk of relapse. Early identification of symptoms or triggers for negative episodes aid them in developing meaningful rehabilitation and crisis prevention plans. Education about diagnosis further assists individuals in learning how to ask informed questions when meeting with psychiatrists or other mental health professionals. Feedback from the group assists the leaders in the timing of topic delivery.
TREM — Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model: TREM is a treatment model developed by Maxine Harris. She is the author of A Clinician's Guide for Working With Women in Groups. The Stroudsburg outpatient program provides two clinicians who co-lead the prescribed 11 group sessions. Individuals are pre-screened and informed about the benefits and potential risks of working on trauma issues. Most participants are also involved in individual treatment with one of the leaders. Women commit to the process of learning about bodily, emotional, and physical boundaries along with self-soothing techniques, sexuality, and intimacy during their transition from simple empowerment to trauma recovery. Learning from what the body remembers, creating and keeping physical safety, relinquishing old unworkable behavior patterns, and developing healthier present day coping skills highlight the benefits members derive. Validating strengths and obtaining support from other like-minded persons supports a mind set of thriving beyond surviving.
