Use of Evidence-Based Services

The California Palms provides evidence-based substance use disorder services that adhere to clinical practice guidelines, as well as other DoD/Veterans Affairs guideline for the treatment of substance use disorders.

Substance misuse prevention efforts are geared toward enhancing individual and unit resiliency, both of which can be compromised by hazardous alcohol use and SUDs. Prevention strategies must be comprehensively structured to educate and inform the overall population as well as specifically target higher risk populations.

Patient Assessment and Diagnostic Responsibilities

Treatment or prevention counseling for all patients should be based on thorough assessment (e.g. Substance Use Assessment Tool, clinical interview, and collection of collateral data as appropriate), determination of risk, and should be tailored for the individual.

Evaluation for specialty treatment requires a thorough biopsychosocial assessment that adheres to evidence based clinical practice guidelines from VA/DoD. The initial assessment is utilized to make treatment recommendations.

The Palms does a complete review of the resident's medical history, including a thorough medication reconciliation. This can help providers uncover potential poly-substance abuse disorders, identify drug-seeking behaviors, and target therapy appropriately. Throughout treatment, providers periodically monitor any changes in the resident's diagnoses.

SUD Treatment and Program Standards

The 24-hour treatment setting for SUD provides a continuum of services capable of meeting the needs of individual under various levels of care. As individuals move throughout the continuum in their recovery they transition to levels of care of greater or lesser intensity, depending on their clinical needs and treatment goals. An individual with SUD may begin with intensive inpatient treatment only to find that a less intensive level of care, such as intensive outpatient treatment, is more appropriate.

Our residential inpatient services are designed to improve the patient's ability to structure and organize the tasks of daily living, stabilize the individual's substance use disorder symptoms, to develop and apply sufficient recovery skills, and to develop and practice prosocial behaviors such that imminent return to substance use upon transfer to a less intensive level is avoided. The skilled treatment services include a range of cognitive, behavioral and other therapies administered on an individual and group basis; medication management and medication education; counseling and clinical monitoring; random drug screening; planned clinical activities and professional services to develop and apply recovery skills; family therapy; educational groups; occupational and recreational therapies; art, music or movement therapies; physical therapy; and related services.

Comprehensive, multifaceted treatment is provided to individuals with psychological problems, and chaotic or unsupportive interpersonal relationships, and antisocial value systems. Treatment promotes abstinence from substance use, and other negative behaviors to effect change in the patients' lifestyle, attitudes, and values, and focuses on stabilizing current severity and preparation to continue treatment in less intensive levels of care. We transition the levels of care throughout treatment in response to changing clinical needs and treatment goals.

Our residential inpatient services for co-occurring disorders in a 24-hour treatment setting is appropriate for individuals whose primary problems involve emotional, behavioral, cognitive, readiness to change, relapse, or recovery environment concerns. Intoxication, withdrawal, and biomedical concerns, if present, are safely manageable in a 24-hour treatment setting. The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) industry guidelines are found in Treatment Criteria for Addictive Substance-Related and Co-Occurring Condition. The California Palms' residential inpatient care in a 24-hour treatment setting provides the level of care found in ASAM Level 3.5 known as Clinically Managed High-Intensity Residential Services.
