Guiding Adults to Independence
One of the most effective ways to help people with serious mental illness or substance use issues is through one-on-one support to build skills and encourage progress.
Our dedicated staff take care in creating a detailed plan specific to the individual which includes assessment, linkage, support, and advocacy activities. This targeted case management approach ensures individuals have the access they need to medical, social, educational, and treatment services.
We also provide coaching and specialing (one-to-one care for crisis management) to individuals who are integrating back into the community. Many face a difficult transition from time spent in a state psychiatric hospital or prison environment.
Learning responsibility, self-reliance, and relationship skills can be challenging. Our clinicians and caseworkers help adults master the social, communication, and daily living skills they need to build productive lives.
We offer two levels of coaching/one-to-one care:
Transitional Coaching is designed for an inpatient or inmate who is being discharged into a community setting. The process of reintegrating into society can be tough, especially when someone has been confined for several years. We make sure that necessary treatments and medications are continued as program participants learn independent living skills and become reoriented to society.
Community Coaching (also known as general coaching) provides services to those already living in the community who may be struggling to manage their lives and meet the expectations and requirements set for them. Without the help of a coach, these individuals are at risk for rehospitalization. We help people get back on track by teaching and modeling the skill sets needed for success.
