Our Clinical Services
Clinical Services Offered by Cornerstone
In addition to the two agency sites in Waterville and Bangor, Cornerstone Behavioral Healthcare also has a network of subcontracted providers offering the listed services below throughout the State. Please be aware that not every provider provides all these services.
Individual, Group, Couples, and Family Outpatient Therapy
Outpatient therapy is provided by independently licensed clinicians. Our clinicians utilize a variety of accepted modalities in providing outpatient services. Our clinicians possess the necessary skills and knowledge to treat a large range of mental health challenges.
Behavioral Health Home/Case Management
Our program qualifies as a “Behavioral Health Home” to both children and adults. This is not a place where people live, but a way of providing case management using a “whole person” approach. This is a MaineCare-covered service. This “whole person” approach means that you can get help managing both physical and mental health services. In the Behavioral Health Home, you get the same services that you get with regular case management, but with an extra focus on helping you to coordinate physical health needs with your primary care provider. The services are provided by a health professional known as a Home Health Coordinator (HHC) or Case Manager (CM) who will help to identify the mental, behavioral, medical, and other whole person needs including educational, housing, peer recovery, transportation, etc. CMs help to identify the services necessary to meet those needs, coordinate and facilitate access to services and integrate care. This model offers a culturally sensitive, team-based approach with YOU being the center and driving force in your care. It begins with intake/assessment, identification of needs, developing a plan of care, referrals, care coordination/advocacy, and monitoring, ending when your goals are met. Behavioral Health Homes builds on the existing care coordination and behavioral health expertise of community mental health providers. We strive to meet your needs efficiently and in the shortest time possible.
Clinical Psychologists interview patients and give diagnostic tests. They may provide individual, family, or group psychotherapy and may design and implement behavior modification programs. Some clinical psychologists work in hospitals where they collaborate with physicians and other specialists to develop and implement treatment and intervention programs that patients can understand and comply with.
Psychiatric Medication Services are those services that are directly related to the prescription, administration, education, and/or monitoring of medications intended for the treatment and management of the symptoms of mental illness.
Services will include Substance Use evaluations and treatment. Evaluations will be performed in a one-on-one clinical setting with a Licensed Substance Use Clinician utilizing comprehensive assessments, paper, and pencil testing, discussion with concerned and affected others, and medical and legal community representatives as permitted by clients. Referral for treatment and ancillary services will occur as clinically required.
Medications for Opioid Use Disorder
Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) is the use of medications, in combination with therapy, to provide a “whole patient” approach to the treatment of opioid addiction. The medications used are suboxone, sublocade, naltrexone, and others. MOUD is designed to provide clients the opportunity to stabilize from opiate use disorder and further engage in the recovery process. Our Program is an office-based outpatient treatment (OBOT) service for adults over the age of 18. OBOT refers to a model of opioid agonist treatment that seeks to integrate the treatment of opioid addiction into general medical and psychiatric care. An important feature of OBOT is that it allows providers to provide opioid treatment services in their usual clinical settings, thus expanding the availability of care. We work very closely with case management and outpatient therapy to offer comprehensive care to our clients.
Opioid Health Home
Opioid Health Home (OHH) is an office-based MOUD service, based on an integrated care delivery model provided by a team of providers focused on whole-person treatment. This service includes but is not limited to, counseling, care coordination, medications for Opioid Use Disorder, peer recovery support, urine drug screening, and medical consultation for individuals who have been diagnosed with opioid dependency and other chronic conditions. OHH services are available for eligible MaineCare clients and uninsured individuals with opioid use disorder. OHH is defined as a rehabilitative service that is to be provided in the context of a supportive relationship, pursuant to an individual treatment plan that promotes a person’s recovery from Opioids and other co-occurring conditions.
