After Care Recovery
Care coordination, whole-person support and improved access to care after a crisis
We understand that a crisis is often just the beginning of a need. Our After-Care Recovery service is post-crisis telephonic outreach assistance designed to provide transitional care coordination to those who have experienced a behavioral health crisis intervention. Research shows that continued communication regarding how, where and when to seek further care is key to improvement in crisis situations.
Led by a clinician, our specialized team’s initial goal is to connect within 48 hours after the crisis episode with the individual’s care provider to ensure coordination of care is streamlined. The clinician conducts a post-crisis needs assessment that serves as the foundation of the after-care intervention strategy. From there, outreach calls are scheduled and executed as outlined in the plan. As a means of continued safeguarding, clinical and peer recovery support is provided until a connection to ongoing care services is made.
We also bring another level of expertise to after-care through culturally-specific support services. For example, to reach American Indians, we work with Tribal Support partners in Native American tribes to offer peer support and promote recovery concepts. Both clinical, peer and family support representatives are able to provide information about behavioral health topics and community referrals – knowing they have the resources and backing of our team.
