Behavioral Health Outpatient & Case Management Services includes outpatient programming, case management, adult partial hospitalization and continuing care services for people with mental illness, substance use disorders and/or co-occurring disorders. Individuals served may also have co-occurring developmental disabilities.
Outpatient programs include psychosocial education and counseling (individual, group and family) for adults whose primary needs involve substance use, but who may also have a mental illness. Services help people make behavioral changes that promote recovery, develop problem-solving skills and coping strategies, and help participants develop a positive support network in the community. Intensive outpatient services are provided for individuals who would benefit from increased frequency of services. Frequency of service varies depending on the individual’s need. Continuing care services are available for individuals who have successfully completed more intensive outpatient services but who would benefit from periodic participation in group therapy, monitoring and service coordination to connect effectively to community supports. Turning Point, a program for young adults (ages 16-25), provides rapid intervention after a first episode of psychosis and subsequent wraparound services.
Case management services are strength-based, person-centered services for adults who have serious and persistent mental or emotional disorders and who may also have co-occurring substance use disorders. Services focus on interventions that support recovery and independence and include supportive counseling to improve quality of life, crisis prevention and management, psychiatric and medication management and group and peer supports. The goal of case management services is to work in partnership with individuals to stabilize behavioral health crises and symptoms, facilitate a successful life in the community, help manage symptom reoccurrence, build resilience, and promote self-management, self-advocacy, and wellness.
Adult Partial Hospitalization (APH) programs provide intensive recovery-oriented services to adults with mental illness or co-occurring disorders coupled with other complex needs. Services are provided within a day programming framework and are designed to help prevent the need for hospitalization or to help people transition from recent hospitalization to less intensive services. APH focuses on helping individuals develop coping and life skills, and on supporting vocational, educational, or other goals that are part of the process of ongoing recovery. Services provided include service coordination, medication management, psychoeducational groups, group and family therapy, supportive counseling, relapse prevention and community integration.
