Making the Case for Case Management With TIP 27
Recovery from substance use disorders spans a continuum, built on individual points that may not always address the unique needs of a person undergoing treatment.
The question: How can we connect the dots and provide clients with the care they require?
A solution: Case management.
Though its definition is not concrete, its benefits are unmistakable. Case management provides a community-based, flexible approach to substance use treatment, establishing a connection among multiple health and social services to meet a client's specific needs.
SAMHSA evaluates case management as an adjunct to substance use treatment in itsTreatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 27: Comprehensive Case Management for Substance Abuse Treatment, which includes models and information on service coordination requirements, linkages with other service agencies, and much more.
