A wide variety of therapies, programs, and services can help those who are struggling with addiction begin the road to lasting, sustainable recovery. It can be overwhelming for those who are beginning treatment to navigate the different levels of care and activities they’re participating in. That’s where case management for addiction treatment comes in. This service is an essential part of our Youngstown addiction treatment programs. Each patient works with a case manager who helps them keep up with every stage of treatment, access resources, and track their progress.
Learn more about case management and how it fits into our addiction treatment services by contacting Midwest Center at Youngstown at 844.544.0502 today.
What Is Case Management?
The primary goal of case management is to help you find the resources you need to become and remain healthy and self-sufficient. The case management plan is essentially a road map created by the case manager with extensive input from you. Each step of the plan shows how you will use resources to overcome addiction, find work and housing, and maintain sobriety.
The case manager either maintains contact with you to receive updates on progress, gathers progress reports from outside services like rehabilitation and therapists, or both. By using milestones to track your progress, the case manager can determine how effective the treatment plan is and whether it should be re-evaluated.
Personalized treatment plans are a cornerstone of our approach to addiction treatment. No two patients are the same, which is why case management is so essential. Our case managers ensure that every patient receives the help and support they need at every turn.
How Case Management for Addiction Supports Recovery
Case management services are offered throughout all levels of care, from residential treatment to outpatient programming. Case management includes a needs assessment and weekly (or more if determined necessary) meetings with a case manager.
Our case managers can assist with a wide variety of needs. These might include:
- Basic needs like insurance, food, transportation, and housing
- Obtaining identification
- Connecting individuals with services to meet their specific needs, like help for mental or physical health issues
Case management may be provided, as allowed, in the home or in the community if preferred by the patient.
Leaving a paper trail helps to track your progress on a long-term basis. If you leave the case manager’s care but then return for support later, the original plan, level of completion, and overall effectiveness will remain on record for future reference. This can help with the development of a new plan, or it may involve a return to the original plan. Relapse is not a sign of failure. Instead, it’s a sign that you or your loved one would benefit from more time in treatment and possibly a different approach. A case manager can help make the transition back into treatment as smooth as possible.
