Stay on Track - Contingency Management

We are offering Contingency Management to clients who are having challenges with Stimulate use. Can I tell you about it?

In the Substance Use Disorder Program at Comprehensive Mental Health Services, we have started our very own Contingency Management program.

It is a rewards program that assists clients in maintaining the abstinence from stimulants (i.e., cocaine, methamphetamine, and amphetamine) and promotes healthy choices and a healthy lifestyle.

The purpose of this program is to encourage you with an incentive that rewards you for being accountable in your recovery process. We want you to be successful, and to achieve great things in your recovery; this is a step in that direction.

Here is how it works: For the first four weeks of treatment, you can earn up to $75 for attending scheduled appointments. At the end of each week, if you have participated in a certain number of groups, meetings with the Recovery Coach, and one on one sessions with your counselor, you will earn a small sum of money in the form of a gift card.

Please look at the details of the program listed below.

Planned Reinforcement Schedule:

Clients who want to participate will be expected to attend four groups per week and at least one counseling session or RC session.

  • Week one: $2 x 4 groups = $8 plus $2 for counseling or RC session= $10
  • Week two: $3 x 4 groups = $12 plus $3 for counseling or RC session = $15
  • Week three: $4 x 4 groups = $16 plus $4 for counseling or RC session= $20
  • Week four: $5 x 4 groups = $20 plus $5 for counseling or RC session = $25
  • Plus $5 bonus at the end of the month if they meet with their counselor/RC one x week for four consecutive weeks =$75

Gift cards are provided by a company called Tango:

  • Clients who want to participate will sign up in the Tango Application with their personal email address.
  • You will have over 100 merchants to choose from including Walmart, Target, Nike, and Amazon etc.
  • You will receive your weekly reward at the end of each week for each group and appointment you attended.
  • You will get to choose what vendor gift card you would like.
  • You will then receive your gift card via email and are able to use it immediately.

We are so glad you are taking this step toward your recovery process! You will do great!

Recovery is for Everyone.
