When an individual enters treatment, their everyday routine and life is interrupted. This can add stress to an already stressful situation, so Royal Life Centers assigns each guest a case manager to manage it. Our compassionate and experienced case managers work closely with guests to help them resolve legal, social, and other issues. With the help of case management, guests make a seamless transition back into society.
A case manager might help a guest schedule medical appointments, apply for government assistance, or coordinate job interviews. They may also serve as guest advocate in the legal system. Case management is about making services and resources fit guests. For example, it is responsible for coordinating aftercare. Aftercare includes outpatient programs and 12-step meetings.
Our case managers understand addiction and assess each guest to determine their strengths, needs, and goals. They then broker for resources to connect guests with community services, develop case plans, and determine benefit eligibility.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, four models from the mental health disorders field have been adapted for use in the field of substance use disorders. At Royal Life Centers, we structure our case management program around the clinical/rehabilitation model. This broad-based model takes a comprehensive look at goal-planning and a flexible approach to resource referral, and places an emphasis on family- and self-support through therapeutic activities, such as therapy and skills-teaching.
What’s the difference between case management and therapy?
Both case management and therapy accommodate the individual guest and their specific needs, so in that sense, the two services are similar. However, the difference between the two lies in their job function. Case management connects guests to community services and resources based on their needs and goals. Whereas, therapy facilitates change and growth in our guests and their personal lives.
