WHAT WE DO
We are passionate about improving the lives of members of black, indigenous and people of color communities* by advocating for improved mental health using a holistic approach to each client served. Transitioning away from aberrant, maladaptive behavioral patterns requires discipline and a loving, supportive recovery environment as an ongoing living solution.
About Evidence Based Best Practices
Since the 2018 passage of the CARES Act, there has become widespread acknowledgment that utsing the latest, most innovative and effective methods to overcome substance abuse and cognitive dissonant the horizon for behavioral health and how managed care insurance providers will reimburse for services provided to their members. Whats missing is despite a universal adoption of evidence based practices in areas such as primary healthcare, behavioral healthcare does not have such a standard across throughout the industry. It's important for patients and their families seeking treatment to be aware of whether the treatment they are receiving or are about to receive at a treatment center is following Evidence based behavioral practices. One of the most fail safe ways to find out is become a member to our site and through your subscription, you will have access to our research of Treatment Centerts in California that have adopted and implemented the EBBP.
What is Evidence Based Behavioral practice?
Changing maladaptive* behaviors takes time, practice and group support from others (*maladaptive means that the behavior often leads to unintended or harmful consequences to yourself and/or to others). There is work to be done to help even the most marginalized to the affluent person - by making them aware of all of the options out there that are available to them and to not get caught up going somewhere just because the bedrooms and living room looks nice. Rehab is a time to heal, rest, learn and be aligned with people who care about you and who provide you with options to the kinds of peer support choices you have when you leave.
Its not just building trustworthy therapeutic alliances with clients, its to provide optimistic, resilience focused accomplishment reminders, helping people become more self reliant, with positive self talk and engendering a willingness for people to submit their predilections and other emotions which may not always lend themselves into finding solution based thinking,
Our foundations mission is to bring public awareness to well researched and statistically proven, evidence based practices in treating addiction and mental health disorders and to promote double blind . These evidence based practices are giving many hope that long term and permanent recovery from addiction and maladaptive behaviors is not only possible, but a reality. Become a subscriber and we will share with you our findings.
We are also developing a list of treatment centers, sober recovery homes that have been broken into the following categories: (a) fully implemented EBP, currently use many EBPs on all levels of patient care offered and entirely open to treatment change based on EBP; (b) Understand EBPs and are willing to adopt process change based on EBPs, not implemented except use of traditional EBPs; (c) Haven’t implemented nor know any EBPs, open to learning; and (d) resistant to EBP adoption.
The Second Half of our Mission is to become Social Advocates for Greater Racial Equity through the Appellate process.
We are dedicated to improving the education, health, and well being of youth and communities of color by empowering them to enact social change through research, training, and community mobilization. Consistent with systemic overt and aversive discrimination based on socio-economic disparities, microaggressive behaviors experienced by those who were deprived their substantive and procedural due process rights or for whom the application of sound administration and application of law was not applied to the same extent and level as it has for people who are of white, european decent, it is our goal to partner with organizations interested in bringing about social justice through the appellate process.
