At IHCRC, the Behavioral Health Department embraces the importance of the primary and extended family in the provision of outpatient behavioral health care and substance abuse treatment. The staff is culturally sensitive, respecting the religious and healing orientation of each client. Prevention programs help build mentally healthy families and combat individual self-destructive behaviors. Stability and wellness are emphasized through healthy lifestyle practices.

Comprehensive Mental Health
Comprehensive mental health services are provided by a professional staff of licensed counselors, psychologists, a child psychiatrist, and adult psychiatrists. Staff diagnose and treat emotional and behavioral problems of children, adolescents, adults and families. Clinical interviews and diagnostic assessments may include the administration of psychometric and projective tests. Psychological evaluations, assessments and referral services are also provided. Individual, family, couples and group therapy is available and specialized therapy groups are offered for a variety of topics and issues. When in-patient treatment is appropriate, staff works closely with clients and community agencies to coordinate a system of care for admission, discharge and aftercare.

Pediatric Behavioral Health
Care for a variety of behavioral and emotional problems, including, but not limited to depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety and mood disorders, is provided to children and adolescents by a team of behavioral health professionals. Native American children and youth with behavioral problems and emotional disorders are assessed and individualized treatment plans are developed to address the needs of the child and family. Treatment options may include individual and family therapy and/or psychotropic medications.

Systems of Care – Wraparound Services
IHCRC’s Gathering Strength and Restoring Harmony Wraparound Services program serves children with emotional or behavioral disorders who are also at risk of being removed from either school or the home. The goal of Wraparound Services is to maintain emotionally and behaviorally challenged children with their family and communities in the most accommodating and least restrictive environment.

Addictions Treatment
IHCRC staff are trained to treat individuals experiencing addiction to alcohol, drugs, and gambling. Treatment services are developed on a case-by-case basis and may include both group and individual therapy. For both adults and youth, chemical dependency services may be facilitated following completion of a drug and alcohol assessment.

Drug and Alcohol Assessment
Assessments are conducted on a walk-in, first-come first-serve basis. Days and times for walk-in assessments are:

Tuesdays at 2:00 pm (clinic doors open at 7:45 am)
Thursdays at 11:00 am (clinic doors open at 9:45 am)

It is recommended you show up at least one hour early, and once checked in you must stay or forfeit your spot to the next individual waiting. Spots are limited; if all available assessment spots are filled, you may be asked to come back on the next available assessment day. Please note that IHCRC staff does NOT complete assessments for DPS/Driver’s License, nor is IHCRC ADSAC approved.

Currently Scheduled Psychotherapy Groups

Depression and Anxiety Group
The group contains members at different stages of the treatment process. Seeing people who are coping or recovering gives hope to those at the beginning of the process. The group is an open group format, meaning that group members can join at anytime.  By interacting with other people and receiving feedback from the group and the therapist, each individual can gain a greater understanding of himself or herself.  This group will start on Tuesday May 5, and will meet each Tuesday from 1:00-2:30.  Materials for group include depression workbooks and motivational material.

Tobacco Cessation Support Group
The group contains ongoing weekly support for members in their struggle to stay nicotine free. Group Topics are driven by members along with motivational handouts by group Therapist. This is an open group starting Wednesday May 6 from 4:00-5:30 pm.  After attending four sessions, attendees may be eligible for Chantix or Wellbutrin.

Substance Abuse Support Group
Our substance abuse group is a process-oriented group focusing on lifestyle choices that affect the addiction process with each client. It is preferable that patients be active in the behavioral health department so that they’re not missing out on the chance to work on issues they might not feel comfortable sharing with the group. We have a variety of people in the group, from people working voluntarily on gaining/strengthening sobriety to people who are court-ordered for services. The group is from 5:30-7:00 pm on Thursdays, perfect for those who might be employed during the day and want to improve/enhance life skills in the evening.

Anger Management Group
IHCRC is now accepting applicants for an eight-week anger management class to start at 5:30 pm on Thursday May 28. The class will meet weekly on Thursdays and will last 90 minutes. The focus will be on identifying, modulating, and proactively de-escalating anger and the situations most likely to provoke an aggressive response. Specific skills, including identifying salient cues to anger and creating an anger control plan, will be taught in a group format. Additionally, cognitive restructuring based upon the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral therapy will be employed. Each participant will be guided through the handbook developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The group will be a closed group, meaning that no new members will be admitted after the first group. Certificates of completion will be given to individuals who demonstrate nominal mastery of the skills taught and who attended a minimum of seven (7) classes out of the eight-week program.
