Description:

Consistent with SAMHSA’s Treatment Improvement Protocol, MTHSS’ Case Management and substance use disorder treatment is sometimes viewed as separate and distinct aspects of the treatment continuum, yet they are complementary and often thoroughly blended. The Protocol is designed to encourage the client to the take the lead in identifying needed resources while emphasizing the Client’s right to self determination and builds upon the Case Manager’s expertise to identify options. Case Management is anchored upon an understanding of clients' experiences and the world they inhabit. It considers the nature of addiction and the problems it causes; and cooccurring problems with which clients struggle (e.g. mental illness, physical health, housing, incarceration). Providing the least restrictive and disruptive level of care necessary is key to our approach. Case Management offers the client a single point of contact within the Health and Human Services System and consolidates a single point of responsibility across providers. The approach is often community-based, integrating formal and informal care resources. Case Managers understand the natural course of addiction and recovery and attempt to foresee challenges, to understand the options available to manage challenges, and to take appropriate action. In some instances, the Case Manager may intervene directly; in others, the Case Manager will take action to ensure that another person on the care team intervenes as needed.
