Services for Children and Adolescents
Treatment Services for Co-occurring Disorders
Integrated and evidence-based treatment services are available for adults and adolescents with co-occurring disorders.
St. Vincent’s is among a group of providers in Westchester County offering ENCOMPASS, a new evidence-based program designed to address the needs of adolescents and young adults with mental health challenges and substance misuse issues. It is estimated that more than 60% of adolescents with substance misuse disorders have a co-occurring mental health problem.
ENCOMPASS offers 12-16 weeks of individual, weekly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), motivational incentives to reinforce abstinence from substance use, and medication management with a psychiatrist if appropriate. Participants in the program have been shown to have significant reductions in psychiatric symptoms and substance use.
The program was developed through collaboration between the harris project, the Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health, WMC Health, Family Services of Westchester and the University of Colorado. A goal of ENCOMPASS is to create an integrated system of treatment for mental health and addiction issues.
