BACHS Healthcare uses a strength-based holistic approach when working with clients who seek services for mental health assistance. By partnering with our clients to provide the services they seek, we normalize the rehabilitation counseling process. We meet our clients where they are at, offering them the support they desire and following a treatment plan from a licensed mental health professional.
BACHS staff partner with our clients and their therapist to identify therapeutic goals. This may include learning to shop and prepare food, choosing an appropriate career path, or finding a place of residence. Our staff will provide education on resources and services that may benefit our clients.
While many of our services are offered in the client's home, we also have on-site group sessions. BACHS also has groups that promote socialization and team building. We have programs as varied as cooking classes, money management, and employment-related skills development.
