Individual paths to recovery may differ, and packages of treatments and supportive services for mental health and substance use disorders should be tailored to fit individual needs. Supportive services, such as case or care management, can also play an important role in promoting health and recovery. Each track takes these basic concepts into mind.
The Track One Program provides services for individuals who mainly have an alcohol or drug problem. Their problem is not so much accompanied by other factors like a mental health disorder or criminogenic challenges. Treatment not only focuses on reducing or stopping illicit drug or alcohol use; it also addresses related areas of impaired functioning—such as employment status, illegal activity, and family/social relations as well as the content and structure of the patient’s recovery program. Through its emphasis on short-term behavioral goals, treatment helps the patient develop coping strategies and tools to abstain from drug use and maintain abstinence. Counselors encourage self-help group participation (at least one or two times per week) and makes referrals for supplemental medical, psychiatric, employment, and other services as needed.
