A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work for therapy. Each case is unique, and every client has specific needs and their own perspective on recovery. According to BMC Health Services Research, "One recent review identified that although experiences vary . . . patients value the opportunities collaboration holds for improving access, collaborative partnerships and patient-centered care." Samarpan uses collaborative care to ensure clients have a positive treatment experience.
Collaboration within healthcare facilities involves integrative care that allows clients and clinicians to work together and create a comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment. According to the International Journal of Mental Health Systems, "[C]ollaborative care may include case management or coordination, patient education, provider education, systematic follow-up of the patient, use of guidelines and algorithms, psychological interventions, and shared decision-making with patients." The client should have access to resources that allow them to make informed decisions.
A positive collaborative experience includes the following:
In most cases, clients and not their family members get to choose their treatment plan at Samarpan. We believe that clients feel more comfortable, safe, and confident about their recovery when they have more control over the outcome. In addition to improving the outcome of their treatment, the collaboration also ensures that clients have a better understanding of how to maintain their recovery during continuing care.
Martin Peters, the Director of Residential Services at Samarpan, has said, “We understand that prescriptive therapy is less effective, and will often lead to a one size fits all approach, which is not what individualized care is about. If a client feels part of the process, they are much more likely to engage.”
Sharing ideas and goals ensures that clients and clinicians remain focused and on the same page. The benefit of collaboration include the following:
Clients who feel comfortable directing their care team quickly gain confidence and feel more comfortable maintaining their recovery during continuing care. In addition, Samarpan uses peer relationships to improve social skills and help clients practice healthy coping mechanisms. Collaboration helps clients feel safer setting social boundaries and prioritizing their personal needs during peer interactions.
Obi Unaka, the Deputy Director of Residential Services at Samarpan, stated, “Clients know themselves better than anyone else and as such, we encourage them to be proactive in making decisions in collaboration with their therapist, as to what they would like to work on and which interventions they would like to try out. This has been proven to empower clients to take ownership of their treatment journey which in turn helps develop self-worth and confidence within them.”
Families and clients often recognize potential problems before they ever interfere with treatment. Collaboration allows them to share that information freely with their care team. Clients also have the opportunity to adjust their recovery goals and treatment plans as they grow and heal.
Clients work with the therapy team and their loved ones to monitor and update their treatment plans as necessary. Samarpan ensures that clients can choose their recovery goals and therapy methods. In addition, they are involved in the following:
The therapy team, support staff, and clients create a community of equality, inclusivity, and compassionate support. A positive treatment environment and the collaborative nature of our programs allow clients to improve their self-awareness. Individuals in recovery can provide feedback to the clinical team, ensuring a smooth transition between levels of care.
Samarpan provides progressive, evidence-based treatments. Research has repeatedly shown that clients have better outcomes when they directly influence their own treatment. Holistic and recovery-oriented care can significantly affect the client-provider relationship. According to World Psychiatry, "One very important feature of recovery-oriented care is its explicit prioritization of autonomy, empowerment, and respect for the person receiving services."
Empowering clients by encouraging them to give input on their own treatment and care does the following:
Our clinical team prioritizes client engagement in the recovery process. Clients are more than a diagnosis or a number. Samarpan puts people first and treats the whole person, providing comprehensive support. Clients have therapists, psychiatrists, and other members of our clinical team guiding them through every step of the process.
When collaborating closely with the care team, clients who engage in evidence-based treatment respond more positively to therapy. Samarpan encourages clients to actively participate in their recovery and treatment planning. Collaborative care allows clients to share their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about recovery. Treating every client with respect and compassion ensures the best treatment outcomes. Part of respecting our clients involves giving them agency over their treatment planning and continuing care goals. Clinicians collaborate with each other, the clients, and their families to provide essential support and increased self-efficacy.
