Integrated Case Management Services (ICMS)

Integrated Case Management Services

ICMS assists individuals age 18 and over with serious and persistent mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders with re-integration into the community. Case management services provide linkages to active treatment in order to help individuals manage their illness and secure the necessary services and resources to improve their quality of life and live in the least restrictive setting possible. Case managers work collaboratively with each individual and their support systems.

Participation in this program is voluntary and can be accessed directly through a referral to the  program.  Hospital discharge planners as well as other community agencies can refer a consumer to ICMS.

All services are provided in the context of each consumer's own environment, whether it be a home or apartment, boarding home or other supported living arrangement.

Participation in this service can be up to 12 months.


 

Services include:

  • Individualized treatment services in the consumer's home environment for up to 12 months
  • Assessment/Service Planning; varying degrees of service intensity based on the consumer's changing needs
  • Linkage to community services such as psychiatric, social service and medical care as indicated on the individualized recovery plan
  • Assistance with obtaining basic living necessities
  • Coordination of Care by partnering with the consumer's family and/or significant others to provide care
  • Assertive, intensive care for those who have not succeeded in traditional treatment
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Case Management
  • Medication Education
  • Supportive Counseling
  • Family Education and Support

The ICMS program is located at the Freehold Counseling Center.
