Executive Summary of Holman Behavioral Health Care Services
Established in 1979 as a leader in employee-oriented mental health services, The Holman Group has been an innovator in managed care services in the areas of psychiatric, drug, alcohol and adolescent treatment, servicing more than 500 client Groups and 1,000,000 eligibles.
The Holman Group is dedicated to providing top quality behavioral health services and effective benefit cost control through:
- Early problem identification and resolution
- Clinical excellence through training and experience
- Superb quality management and support systems
- Extreme Customer-focused service
The Holman Group strongly believes in the rights and dignity of ALL our clients. Our clinical protocol and administrative procedures demonstrate this belief. We are truly invested in, and committed to providing caring and effective treatment to our clients.
The Holman Group's treatment philosophy supports symptom reduction and crisis resolution within a brief therapy model. We strive to provide the most effective clinical services in the least restrictive setting. The goal is to restore our clients to their highest possible level of functioning within the shortest period of time. Early intervention prevents the need for higher levels of care.
We place a strong emphasis on the treatment of substance abuse and dependency problems. Chemical dependency is a treatable disease. It is characterized by chronicity and progressiveness with a high potential for relapse. However, relapse does not denote failure as much as insufficiency of treatment. Although the disease cannot be cured, in the sense the individual can use alcohol or drugs again, it can be arrested and the individual may again attain a lifestyle of purposeful and constructive activities. Whenever there is evidence of abuse or dependency, this becomes the primary diagnosis and focus of treatment. An insistence is placed on total abstinence and working on an active program of recovery. Every attempt is made to position our clients for success.
