Our mission is to provide collaborative support services to empower individuals as they journey through their recovery process from the disease of addiction and other life challenges to achieve and maintain long-term recovery. As we work with individuals in the recovery process, individuals are empowered to identify their strengths and talents and focus on their specific areas of need. The collaborative approach is built on the idea that all individuals, regardless of their challenges and walks of life, are people first.
Case Management Services
PMHCC Case Management provides case management services to individuals with dual diagnoses of substance use and mental health disorder with the hope of sustaining a self-fulfilling recovery lifestyle. Our services focus on promoting autonomy and self-advocacy and are based on case management principles that are client-centered, community-based, pragmatic, flexible and culturally sensitive. Case managers align these principals to provide supportive ancillary services that drive engagement, service coordination, goalsetting, monitoring and coaching. Case managers support all stages of recovery. Case managers take the time to understand individual’s needs, evaluate strengths and challenges, and create a plan that will help individuals access the support and community resources they need to achieve their self-defined goals. Our case managers are as creative and innovative as necessary to tailor the recovery needs of each individual to achieve long-term recovery.
PMHCC Case Management consists of the following six (6) teams: (1) The Keys to Recovery; (2) Assertive Outreach; (3) Families in Transition (FIT); (4) Community Outreach and Recovery Engagement (CORE); (5) Blended Team; and (6) Helping Other People Evolve (HOPE). In order to meet our most vulnerable population, two of our six teams provide enhanced case management: The Keys to Recovery Team specializes in servicing individuals with co-occurring disorder and the Assertive Outreach Team specializes in servicing individuals with an Opioid Use Disorder.
Peer Support Services
PMHCC Case Management fosters a recovery-oriented approach that infuses the language, culture and spirit of recovery. Our peer culture builds on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families and communities to achieve abstinence and improve health, wellness and quality of life. We offer Peer Support as an extension of case management which complements services by providing support in collaboration with case managers. This approach helps to assist individuals on their journey to continued recovery and thrive within their own community. Peer Support staff provides person-centered services to help individuals reach life goals and experience a sense of accomplishment, reduce crisis and hospitalizations, better understand treatment services and increase community engagement.
