Treatment Philosophy

The treatment philosophy which guides Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems is the belief that every individcual has the right to develop his or her fullest potential. Holcomb recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and promotes feelings of dignity, a sense of self-worth and the right to make informed choices. Services are developed and provided for each person with recovery principles in the forefront, supporting an individual’s efforts towards wellness and self-determination. Individualized services are implemented in a manner which is culturally competent and which focuses on the individual strengths, needs, abilities, interests and desires. To facilitate the efficacy of services, all services are provided in the least restrictive, least intrusive environment which is appropriate for an individual’s needs. All services are delivered based on evidence-based practices as applicable.

The complexity of clinical needs presented by individuals with co-occurring disorders is addressed through integrated treatment that addresses the holistic needs of the client. It is recognized the co-occurring issues needs to be seen as the expectation, rather than the exception when approaching the assessment and treatment of clients in outpatient counseling. Case management services are seen as instrumental to supporting the recovery of an individual with co-occurring issues. Treatment needs to acknowledge that clients may be at differing stages and readiness for change for their co-occurring issues and make adjustments to those differences. Treatment needs to be supportive of recovery, utilizing motivational enhancement strategies and other evidence based interventions.


Holcomb, its affiliates, and related organizations are acknowledged as leaders in providing services and supports for people with mental health, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. Basic to Holcomb’s system of service is the active involvement of the people served, their families and their advocates. Equally critical is a well-trained, dedicated staff and responsive Boards of Directors who are committed to excellence in providing Holcomb’s services. Fundamental to all of Holcomb’s activities is the maintenance of the highest quality and integrity.
