Case Management is a collaborative and coordinated approach to the delivery of health and social services that links patients with appropriate services to address specific needs and achieve treatment goals. Case Management is a patient-centered service that is intended to complement clinical services, such as individual and group counseling, to address areas in an individual’s life that may negatively impact treatment success and overall quality of life. Case Management offers support services to patients to increase self-efficacy, self-advocacy, basic life skills, coping strategies, self-management of biopsychosocial needs, benefits and resources, and reintegration into the community.

This presentation will describe and demonstrate the subject of targeted case management for working with patients in treatment for substance use disorders. The key differences between case management and clinical treatment will be explored. The lecture will introduce the foundational principles of case management theory and present the four prevalent models of case management including the brokerage/generalist model and the strengths-based model. The presentation will also differentiate Case Management with the homeless population in Los Angeles County and its relation to the Systems of Care.

Objectives: At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Utilize a strength-based perspective and its application to case management practices
  2. Identify & describe how case management roles and tasks apply to individuals with substance use disorders and within the network of substance use disorders continuum of care
