ABOUT AGENCY FOR COMMUNITY TREATMENT SERVICES, INC. – KEYSTONE RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT PROGRAM
The Agency for Community Treatment Services, Inc. (ACTS), a community-based health agency, has delivered treatment services and social support for clients and their families since 1978. The Keystone Residential Program in Tarpon Springs, Fla., one of the organization’s many programs, provides a co-ed residential treatment program for adults with drug abuse and co-occurring disorders.
The facility also serves as an alternative to incarceration for both the Pinellas County and Hillsborough County jails. Detoxification services are available at other ACTS locations, but not at this program.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
An initial assessment includes an interview to determine the most appropriate behavioral health services. Each client is assigned a case manager who helps create a treatment plan, discharge plan, and an ongoing recovery plan.
The treatment program is open to adults with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. However, severed mental health disorders that cannot be controlled are not allowed in the program. Clients that require medical and extreme medicinal intervention to safely participate in the program are also excluded. Clients with a history of violence in other programs, sexual misconduct, or outstanding warrants are also excluded.
Programming is evidence-based and individualized based on the initial assessment. Treatment includes individual and group therapy, recreational therapy, random drug screening, and medication management. Educational groups focus on topics including recreation, decision-making, living skills, finances, relationships, nutrition, and more.
Seeking Safety helps clients deal with trauma issues during weekly gender-specific groups. ACTS is one of 310 (46.4 percent) of Florida facilities with programming specifically for women, and 295 (44.2 percent) of facilities with programs for men. Clients also participate in daily 12-Step meetings, which are available at 76.6 percent of Florida facilities. Upon discharge, clients are scheduled a follow-up appointment with a provider in the community.
Clients with outside commitments including medical appointments and social services calls can take the facility’s transport services. Special consideration is given to clients that are homeless as a means of getting them off of the street and helping them find appropriate housing after treatment.
The clinical staff at ACTS consists of a medical director, nurses, a consulting psychiatrist, doctors, licensed clinical therapists, certified addiction professionals, case managers, and behavioral health technicians. All staff members are trained in crisis intervention skills.
