Uplift Family Services Focus:

Mental Health

Mental Health Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from mental illnesses like bipolar disorder, clinical depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and more. Mental health professionals at these facilities are trained to understand and treat mental health issues, both in individual and group settings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Uplift Family Services offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) are available for eligible children who need short-term behavioral support in addition to any other mental health services they are receiving. TBS's goal is to help children avoid being placed in a higher level of care such as a residential treatment facility or to help children make a successful move to a lower level of care such as returning home after residential treatment.

Outpatient (OP)

The Flexible Integrated Treatment (FIT) is an outpatient mental health program that helps families with children and teens, ages 0-20, who are struggling at home, school or in the community. Works in partnership with the family to create a plan to meet their goals for cognitive, emotional, and behavioral health. Each plan is unique and built upon the family’s strengths, values and culture.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

TBS staff begins by gaining an understanding of the child's behavior. TBS then develops replacement behaviors for the child to use as alternatives to the undesirable behaviors. Strategies may include the development of a behavioral plan, such as a step-by-step process in which caregivers follow a guideline to manage specific behaviors as they occur, or an incentive plan where the child is rewarded for choosing productive replacement behaviors.

Family Program

TBS staff works directly with the child and those who care for the child. During this time, TBS staff, the child and the child's caregivers are learning together and taking responsibility for their parts of the child's behavior plan. Interventions and strategies focus on improved self-management, self-awareness, and communication skills as well as positive reinforcement of desirable behaviors.

Aftercare Support

TBS staff oversees a transition plan to ensure that the positive behavioral changes will continue. A child graduates from TBS once the frequency, duration, and intensity of the 1 to 3 targeted behaviors have been reduced and interventions and strategies have been transitioned to support persons. TBS may also need to stop services if the child does not appear to be benefiting from services or progress has reached a plateau.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Uplift Family Services places children ages birth through 21, who have been referred by the court, in certified foster homes. They provide ongoing support services to foster children and families. Their staff works directly with immediate and extended biological family to facilitate reunification and permanency. For the child whose permanent plan is adoption, they are a custodial adoption agency licensed by the State of California to provide a full range of adoption services.
The Family Finding program helps reconnect foster children with safe, healthy family members and speed their recovery from emotional trauma. Using internet search technology, they are able to find biological family members for children in the system.
