Integrating the Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) Within a Residential Treatment Facility – Capstone Treatment Center

On-demand webinar

In this Provider Spotlight webinar, Unyte Health welcomed Clinical Director at Capstone Treatment Center, Jeremy Carter LMFT, LPC and SSP Coordinator and Intake Specialist at Capstone Treatment Center, Kayla Ann Wilson, LMSW. Hosted by Kelly Beins, Clinical Solutions Manager at Unyte Health, this webinar discussed considerations for integrating the SSP into a residential treatment facility including environment, setting, timeline and family integration. 

This webinar explores:

  • The evolution of Capstone Treatment Center and the reason for SSP integration.
  • The role an SSP coordinator can play in enhancing delivery outcomes.
  • SSP outcomes related to behavior, relationship, and engagement in combination with other modalities.

Unyte Health is proud to partner with treatment centers like Capstone. Capstone is located in Judsonia, Arkansas and offers residential therapy programs for young men ages 18 to 26 and teenage boys ages 14 to 17 with a wide range of mental health struggles. Capstone is a highly specialized Christian treatment center that treats trauma, substance abuse, sexual compulsivity, family issues, addictions, behavioral problems, and co-occurring disorders. Every young man who enters the program receives a puppy as a part of their specialized canine therapy program and takes that puppy home with them when they graduate. 

The SSP and Capstone treatment approach work together to support the individual needs of male clients enrolled in the program. With unique client presentations and factors of adolescent residential treatment facilities, Capstone utilizes the SSP to support new residents of Capstone towards smooth intake and increase regulation while enhancing social engagement and resilience by re-patterning the auditory and nervous systems toward safety and connection.

In addition, Capstone shared case studies exemplifying the integration and clinical outcomes of the SSP.
