CARE Program

CARE – Comprehensive Assistance with Recovery and Empowerment

The CARE program is designed as a fluent service for persons, who have met the SMI criteria, to enter and exit the program as needed. Persons may remain in the program for an extended period of time.

A core clinical assessment is completed upon admission. This allows persons to begin the process of joining with their treatment team to determine how they best see their recovery journey unfolding. CARE services recognizes that persons entering services have unique strengths and challenges. Therefore, CARE services are designed to encourage persons to build up their physical, emotional and intellectual skills. These skills are intertwined with persons developing happy, healthy and productive lives in their community environment.

Therapeutic interventions are individually structured to emphasize person’s development, enhancement and acquisition in skill building in the areas of personal, social and emotional growth. Co-occurring services are provided concurrently with mental health services. Therapeutic models that work with Evidence Based Practiced are embraced in CARE services.

These include but are not limited to:

  1. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  2. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  3. Developmental Psychology
  4. Persons Centered Therapy
  5. Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy

We recognize that other therapeutic modalities may also be utilized to assure that persons receive the interventions that best fit their needs to help them achieve their recovery goals.

The CARE team is made up of outpatient case managers and a clinical supervisor. The team is multi-disciplinary to best meet the needs of the persons served. CARE services are provided daily, always with someone available to handle emergencies.
