Welcome To Cornerstone Behavioral Healthcare "Clinical Services" Page

Clinical Services Offered by Cornerstone

In addition to the two agencies sites in Waterville and Bangor, Cornerstone Behavioral Healthcare also has a network of subcontracted providers offering the listed services below throughout the state. Please be aware that not every provider provides all these services.

Individual, Group, Couples and Family Outpatient Therapy

Outpatient therapy is provided by independent licensed clinicians (Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors, Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatrist, Psychologist, LMFT, LCSW-C, LCPC-C). Our clinicians utilize a variety of accepted modalities in providing outpatient services. Clinicians possess the necessary skills and knowledge to treat a large range of mental health challenges.

Behavioral Heath Home/Case Management

Behavioral Health Home/ Case Management Services. Our program qualifies as a “Behavioral Health Home” to both children and adults. This is not a place where people live, but a way of providing case management using a “whole person” approach. This is a Maine Care covered service. This “whole person” approach means that you can get help managing both physical and mental health services. In the Behavioral Health Home, you get the same services that you get with regular case management but with an extra focus of helping you to coordinate physical health needs with your primary care provider. The services are provided by a health professional known as a Home Health Coordinator (HHC) or Case Manager (CM) who will help to identify the mental, behavioral, medical and other whole person needs including educational, housing, peer recovery and transportation, etc. CM’s help to identify the services necessary to meet those needs, coordinate and facilitate access to services and integrate care. This model offers a culturally sensitive, team based approach with YOU being the center and driving force in your care. It begins with intake/assessment, identification of needs, developing a plan of care, referrals, care coordination/advocacy, monitoring, and ends when your goals are met. Behavioral Health Homes build on the existing care coordination and behavioral health expertise of community mental health providers. We strive to meet your needs efficiently and in the shortest time possible.

Psychological Testing

Clinical Psychologists often interview patients and give diagnostic tests in their offices. They may provide individual, family, or group psychotherapy and may design and implement behavior modification programs. Some clinical psychologists work in hospitals where they collaborate with physicians and other specialists to develop and implement treatment and intervention programs that patients can understand and comply with.

Medication Management

Psychiatric Medication Services are those services that are directly related to the prescription, administration, education, and/or monitoring of medications intended for the treatment and management of the symptoms of mental illness. These services would be provided by a Psychiatrist, Nurse Practitioner or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse.

Substance Use

Services will include substance Use evaluations and treatment. Evaluations will be performed in a one-on-one clinic setting with a Licensed Substance Use Clinician utilizing comprehensive assessments, paper and pencil testing, discussion with concerned and affected others, medical and legal community representatives as permitted by clients. Referral for treatment and ancillary services will occur as clinically required.

Medication Assisted Therapy

Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with therapy, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of opioid addiction. MAT is designed to provide clients the opportunity to stabilize from opiate use disorder and further engage in the recovery process. Our Program is an office based outpatient treatment (OBOT) service for adults over the age of 18. OBOT refers to a model of opioid agonist treatment that seeks to integrate the treatment of opioid addiction into general medical and psychiatric care. An important feature of OBOT is that it allows providers to provide opioid treatment services in their usual clinical settings, thus expanding the availability of care. We work very closely with case management and outpatient therapy to offer comprehensive care to our clients

Opioid Health Home

Opioid Health Home (OHH) is an office-based MAT service, based on an integrated care delivery model provided by a team of providers focused on whole-person treatment. This service includes, but is not limited to, counseling, care coordination, medication-assisted treatment, peer recovery support, urine drug screening, and medical consultation for individuals who have been diagnosed with an opioid dependency and other chronic conditions. OHH services are available for eligible MaineCare clients and uninsured individuals with opioid use disorder. OHH is defined as a rehabilitative service that is to be provided in the context of a supportive relationship, pursuant to an individual treatment plan that promotes a person’s recovery from Opioids and other co-occurring conditions.
