EHN would like to invite the El Paso community to the Mental Health First Aid Lifesaver Rally. Learn more about mental health issues facing our community and how the Mental Health First Aid training course can help you learn the signs, responses and how to be a lifesaver.

You’ll also hear from two keynote speakers who share their personal stories of how mental illness has impacted their lives and how they journeyed from darkness into light. Registration is free and begins at 8:30 am on Friday, June 20, 2018.  We hope to see you there!

EHN is proud to host the 2018 IDD Wonderland Trip to San Antonio, Texas.  For the past several years, EHN has sent several of its IDD clients on a trip of a lifetime, thanks to the Frances Rodriguez Memorial Wonderland Benefit Concert held each summer.  100% of the proceeds from the concert fund a trip to the Wonderland Theme Park and visits to several popular tourist attractions in San Antonio, TX.

“The majority of our clients with an IDD (intellectual/developmental disability) are adults and our goal is to help them develop the skills and provide them with opportunities needed to live as independently as possible. This trip furthers that goal and allows them to take a trip they might not otherwise be able to experience,” said Kristi Daugherty, Emergence Health Network CEO.

We would like to thank our EHN IDD staff for working hard to coordinate this trip of a lifetime for our clients. The date for the 7th Annual Wonderland Benefit Concert is scheduled for Friday, August 10, 2018, so mark your calendar and get your dancing shoes ready… more details to come.

Spotlight on Success

Substance Use Disorder Treatment Program

Emergence Health Network is dedicated to assisting individuals in our community who are dealing with substance abuse and addiction problems. EHN offers several programs to help our clients achieve long-term recovery. Through the EHN Substance Use Disorder Treatment Program all clients receive individualized treatment based on individual needs. Mike Murphy received help for his opioid addiction at the EHN Westside Integrated Care Clinic. “One of the biggest challenges with my situation was the embarrassment, but the doctor’s and everyone here is very approachable. Making appointments are simple and the staff is awesome,” said Mike Murphy. “My life used to be a one, very poor and now my life is a ten, it’s great.”

The coordination of mental health, substance abuse and primary care services provided at the Westside Integrated Clinic produce the best outcomes and is the most effective approach to caring for people with complex healthcare needs. Murphy received help through the Medication Assistant Treatment Program which is the use of medication in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders and sustained recovery.

EHN also offers Substance Use Disorder Treatments at our Alternatives at EHN location. This includes an office-based Opioid Treatment program, Supported employment services, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) which is beneficial for people who are dealing with addiction problems too severe to be managed in outpatient therapy alone.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Program

Emergence Health Network offers a variety of services for children, including mental health services through our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Program (ChAMHPs.)  Such services include skills training and development, medication training and support, counseling, parent and family support, and so much more. Jose Lozano receives services through the Youth Empowerment Services (YES) offered at the ChAMHPs clinic. “Before I was angry and would sometimes destroy my room, scream and threaten people,” said Jose Lozano. “Now I can cope and calm myself down. I really like the horse therapy.”

The YES program is a Medicaid Home and Community Based service waiver that allows for more flexibility in the funding of intensive services to assist children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbances to remain living with their families. It helps in situations where parents have turned to state custody for care when they feel they have reached or exceeded their financial, emotional or health care support resources and are unable to cover the costs of their child or adolescent’s mental health treatment.

Jose’s family say before participating in the YES program, they were frustrated because they didn’t know how to help their child, now they do and would recommend the services to other families.
