DOSE Training Schedule 2016-2017
BCCS offers a variety of educational programs, coursework, counseling, social support networks, and community presentations to help bring about positive life transitions and journeys of recovery for our clients.
BCCS offers a one day Anger Management Course in English and Spanish. Participants gain the skills needed to better understand their anger, and to effectively manage and cope with intense emotions. This eight hour class meets court ordered requirements. It is open to any Brandywine client as well as the public.
BCCS assessors provide services to individuals referred through Delaware Probation and Parole at two locations in New Castle: 26 Parkway Circle, and 314 Cherry Lane. Our ASI approved assessors administer the Addiction Severity Index and the ASAM Customer Placement Criteria to determine the appropriate level of care. A referral is made to the appropriate treatment program and the client is assisted in entering the recommended level of care. Weekly drug education groups take place using a prescribed curriculum.
First time offenders may choose to participate in this program in order to resolve a drug charge that may otherwise result in a conviction, loss of driver’s license, and a sentence or probation. A client graduates from the program after meeting all required criteria, including attendance and participation, completion of goals, consecutive negative urinalysis reports, and avoidance of all criminal activity.
The Women in Transition (WIT) program is designed to address the specialized treatment needs of both prenatal and postnatal women. The program focuses on establishing healthy lifestyle choices as well as developing a social support network for new and expecting mothers. Through individual counseling, group counseling, and case manager services, the WIT program is dedicated to establishing the highest level of wellness in pregnancy, parenting, and recovery.
We have employees that work inside the Division of Family Services to assist in identifying individuals who struggle with a substance use disorder. Referrals come from DFS only. The liaisons educate DFS social workers on the impact of addiction on an individual and family; they do initial screenings of individuals and link them to treatment in an effort to reduce and prevent abuse and neglect of children.
BCCS Prevention and Education Department will tailor any presentation to meet the needs of your community. We will provide accurate, useful information surrounding a broad range of topics, as they relate to substance use/abuse, and/or fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. Please contact Allison Steever at 302-225-9265 for more information.
