Case Management Services for Addiction Treatment

increase your chances of achieving lifelong sobriety
with case management services

When people attend addiction treatment at rehab centers, they need support if they ever plan on achieving sobriety. One way that individuals can receive support during and after addiction treatment is through case management services. In fact, studies show that individuals are more likely to remain in treatment long-term if they receive case management services. Individuals are also more likely to successfully complete addiction treatment if they utilize case management services. 

Studies also show that individuals that use case management services tend to have better healthcare. They also tend to have fewer legal and family issues and more stable housing situations. With all the benefits of case management services, it would be remiss of recovering addicts to not take advantage of them.  

What is Case Management?

Case management is a series of services that individuals in addiction treatment and recovery can receive to help them overcome barriers in their lives that may hinder them from maintaining sobriety. Examples of case management services include healthcare arrangements, financial assistance, and housing. 

Case management services will also help individuals in addiction treatment and recovery come up with detailed case plans. Within these case plans are goals and methods that will help recovering individuals maintain their sobriety long-term. 

The person who works with individuals in addiction treatment and recovery during case management is the case manager. Case managers are assigned to individuals in addiction treatment and recovery. That way the case managers can give each recovering addict their undivided attention. 

What Is a Case Manager?

A case manager is an individual that case management allocates to each person that’s receiving case management services. Case managers help individuals who are receiving case management services do everything from receive financial assistance and housing to come up with a list of addiction recovery goals. 

Essentially, case managers are advocates for individuals that are receiving case management services while in addiction treatment and recovery. That’s why case managers try to get to know the people that they are servicing prior to helping them. 

Since case managers work to assist and support their clients in any way possible, they often make great people to confide in. Their job is to assist and support their clients in any way possible. In fact, many case managers are also technically counselors and therapists. Therefore, recovering individuals can feel comfortable leaning on case managers for emotional and physical support!

How to Find a Case Manager?

Case management services are usually offered at addiction treatment centers. So, to find a case manager, simply ask for case management services. Any individual who asks for these services at a rehab center that offers them will be allocated a case manager. 

Actions Taken By Case Managers During Addiction Treatment

During addiction treatment, case managers will help patients come up with treatment plans. To come up with effective treatment plans for each patient, case managers will do the following things:

1. Screen and Assess Addiction Treatment Patients

The first thing case managers must do is learn about their clients and their conditions. To help them do this, case managers give addiction treatment patients initial assessments. These can help to determine the conditions of addiction treatment patient clients. These initial assessments will also help case managers determine the treatment needs of their rehab patient clients. Case managers will even use initial assessments to get an idea of what each patient’s goals are during and after rehab.  

2. Arrange and Negotiate Resources

The next step is to arrange and negotiate resources for their clients. This means contacting healthcare facilities and retrieving healthcare benefits for their addiction treatment patient clients. This also often means retrieving financial assistance and housing for their addiction treatment patient clients.  

Once case managers negotiate the level of resources addiction treatment patients will receive, they’ll arrange for their addiction treatment patient clients to get everything that they need to access those resources. For example, after a case manager negotiates for an addiction treatment patient to receive financial assistance, arrangements will be made for the individual to immediately receive the money at home. Case managers will even often arrange for their clients to attend addiction support groups. That way, patients are still receiving support once they stop receiving case management services.

3. Develop Your Case Plan

Once case managers arrange and negotiate the levels of resources that their addiction treatment patient clients receive, they’ll work with the rehab patients to come up with their own case plans. Addiction treatment case plans contain goals that rehab patients want to achieve with their resources during addiction treatment. These case plans also contain methods and tools that addiction treatment patients can use to help them achieve their goals. 

Ultimately, rehab patients use their addiction treatment case plans to help them overcome addiction. Recovering individuals also use their treatment case plans to help them get jobs and housing. 

4. Determine Client Eligibility for Benefits

The amount of benefits that case managers will retrieve for their addiction treatment patient clients is dependent on client needs. For example, some people receiving case management services that are struggling financially may receive food stamps. Addiction treatment patients may even receive benefits from religious support groups and non-medical services. 

5. Evaluating Progress

Once case managers help their clients receive their necessary resources, they’ll start to communicate with their rehab patient clients less and less. Case managers will still check up on their rehab patient clients every once and a while though. 

During these check-ups, case managers will assess whether or not the treatment case plans are effective. If the case managers find that the treatment plans aren’t effective, they’ll work with the clients to make adjustments to the plans. 

6. Record Long-Term Case Progress

Both the case managers and their patients are responsible for tracking their treatment cases’ progress long-term. By tracking long-term treatment plan success, individuals can assess whether or not a new case plan is needed.

Actions Taken By Case Managers After Treatment is Over

To help make a smooth transition from rehab back into the real world, case managers will still provide rehab patients with some support in recovery. For example, case managers may find physical and mental health physicians for their clients in addiction recovery. 

Case managers will also refer clients in addiction recovery to outpatient support groups and 12-step meetings. Managers may even refer individuals that need extra assistance transitioning back into the real world after completing rehab to sober living homes. 

What Are Case Management Models?

Case management models are different forms of case management. These models fall into one of the following categories:

1. Strength-Based Perspective

During this form of case management, case managers will help individuals come up with treatment plans. These treatment plans will help recovering individuals build upon his or her strengths.

2. Assertive Community Treatment 

This case management model aims to help recovering addicts receive all of their day-to-day needs. This includes things like prescription medications, housing, and more. 

3. Clinical and Rehabilitation

This case management model provides recovering addicts with clinical treatment and resources. Examples of clinical treatments and resources that this case management model will offer include therapy and counseling, interventions, and skills development.

4. Broker/Generalist

This case management model offers recovering addicts with necessary services in a quick and efficient manner. For example, case managers that offer this case management model will get referrals from different hospitals and courts along with work training, housing, or drug testing services. 

Benefits of Case Management Services

Case management services offer many benefits. One of these benefits is having a case manager that individuals can confide in. In fact, case managers are taught about different cultures and different types of families, communities, and social events. As a result, many managers connect clients with alternative support groups that are based on their cultural and individual needs. 

Another benefit of working with case managers is that they are highly knowledgeable about various resources that recovering addicts tend to need. Managers can help recovering addicts receive these necessary resources. 

Who Benefits Most from Case Management Services

People who receive addiction treatment at various different outpatient programs can benefit greatly from case management services. This is because case management services help increase the retention rate at outpatient programs. Also, outpatient rehab patients have more time to receive case management services.

Outpatient rehab patients are even further along in addiction recovery than their inpatient counterparts. In many cases, these individuals are ready to take advantage of the aftercare treatment benefits that case management services have to offer. Studies show that young adults benefit most from case management services. While young adults may benefit the most, any individual of any age can benefit from case management.
