Region V Case Management

We believe case management services should be pragmatic, client driven and culturally sensitive to the individuals. Our approach emphasizes respect, independence and self-empowerment.

Case Management offers the client a single point of entry into the health and social service system. When dealing with individuals with a substance use disorder and diverse services, the need to promote their best interest is paramount. Our goal is to serve as a liaison and provide guidance, support and advocacy throughout the community-based social service system.


  • Two or more admissions to detox or inpatient treatment facilities within the last six months; or have shown frequent use of community resources (i.e., ED visits, police involvement or shelter stay).
  • Meet the DSMV criteria for Primary Axis I substance dependence and may show mild – moderate Psychiatric Symptom Severity.

Demonstrate three of the following:

  • History of needing continuous supportive treatment.
  • Current housing difficulties; or homelessness that may increase the risk of relapse.
  • Lack of financial resources and system supports.
  • Involved in or appropriate for specialized services (i.e., DCF, AIC, probation and parole).


  • Develop an individualized recovery-based plan, based upon an assessment of the client’s identified needs.
  • Assist clients with procuring benefit entitlements through the Department of Social Services.
  • Collaborate and coordinate with other community-based service and treatment providers.
  • Assist clients in obtaining stable housing.

Region V Case Management targets the needs of individuals with a substance use disorder who are prone to chronic relapse and repeated use of community acute care services.
