Overview

Requirements for treatment planning in the mental health and addictions fields are long standing and embedded in the treatment system. However, most clinicians find it a challenge to develop an effective, person-centered treatment plan. Such a plan is required for reimbursement, regulatory, accreditation and managed care purposes. Without a thoughtful assessment and well-written plan, programs and private clinicians are subject to financial penalties, poor licensing/accreditation reviews, less than stellar audits, etc. In addition, research is beginning to demonstrate that a well-developed person-centered care plan can lead to better outcomes for persons served.

* Provide readers with sample documents, examples of how to write a plan, etc.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph Beck, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book describes an individualized approach to addiction recovery and treatment and includes unique appendixes that outline actual treatment plans.
Purpose: The purpose is to have treatment providers recognize the utility of tailoring treatment and not necessarily use an algorithmic approach. It then outlines some methods of customizing the treatment to meet individual patient needs in a biopsychosocial fashion.
Audience: There is a very small and specific audience for this book. Mental health professionals who are focused on addiction recovery, and have the necessary resources to carry out the treatment plans, may benefit.
Features: The book starts by arguing the importance of person-centered care while defining the term. It then delineates specific methods for individualizing care plans. It is inclusive of some of the basic tenets of addiction recovery, including assessing stages of change and having patients perform narrative summaries. The appendixes are very useful, outlining care plans in a very specific manner that I would find applicable to clinical care.
Assessment: I did not find this book particularly engaging. The authors are not very succinct in describing basic addiction recovery principles and since the audience is likely to be versed in these, they likely will find the book lacking. Although the title seems clearly stated, the overall thrust of the book is somewhat convoluted and ethereal. The appendixes, however, are very useful. These sorts of concrete examples are what clinicians need to practice with this population. In fact, I would consider using these appendixes as a template for recovery planning. Perhaps, a sort of workbook would be more useful since the quality of the text does not match the utility of the appendixes and the audience is most likely familiar with most of what the text covers.

" -Glyn Thomas, Organizational Development Director, Satilla Community Services "...our Director of Clinical and Rehabilitative Services and her senior managers have created a staff training based... on [the] book." -Wendy Gradison, LCSW, CPRP; President and CEO, PRS, Inc.

"Adams and Grieder’s Treatment Planning for Person Centered Care has its foundations in evidence and good clinical judgment. It is recovery oriented, reflecting person-centered values coupled with practical guidance. Clinicians and administrators would do well to build on the foundations of this excellent book. We use it in our work on training and implementing Evidence-Based Practices in the Public Mental Health System in Maryland. We have found that this strengths-based approach ensures the consumer voice is central to treatment planning. It also balances program and provider needs to meet medical necessity criteria and other requirements for payment of service."
