Adult Case Management
Adults with a mental illness and perhaps a co-occurring substance abuse disorder need a wide range of services, especially if they lack a natural support system to assist them in their recovery. Through Targeted Case Management, our staff can help them with finding and maintaining supportive house, establishing linkages with community agencies and services, providing education to families and significant others about mental illness and coping strategies, getting primary medical care at the New Horizons Primary Care Clinic, and overall reducing the need for future psychiatric hospitalization.
