How We Serve
Camden Case Management's philosophy is centered around providing emotionally attuned support to clients, helping them apply the skills learned in treatment to their lives outside the treatment setting. Each individual is paired with a case manager who conducts a comprehensive assessment, creates an individualized service plan, and acts as a central, collaborative advocate. Case managers work closely with clients to understand their unique thoughts, emotions, and therapeutic needs, incorporating these into practical strategies for tangible progress in their everyday lives.
The case manager actively guides clients in the development of essential skills and areas of personal growth including self-care, setting attainable goals, assertive communication, time management, physical and psychological wellness, and recreational activities. This process involves creating and maintaining a realistic schedule and balancing the demands of each domain. As part of the client’s service plan, the case manager also connects them to vetted outside resources, including various forms of social, clinical, and educational or vocational support.
With the client’s consent, the case manager communicates with key individuals in their support network, including therapists, physicians, and other professionals to facilitate cohesion and coordination amongst the team. As a central advocate, the case manager helps maximize the client’s progress toward their goals.
For those individuals transitioning from inpatient to outpatient treatment, the decrease in structure and support while returning to the stressors and triggers of their home environment can be a significant challenge. Camden Case Management provides key assistance before, during, and after this transition, helping the client adhere to their aftercare plan and make effective use of their support system. In addition to a case manager, clients may also be paired with a mentor and/or a companion who works closely with them to develop and practice healthy habits for daily life during this crucial period.
Camden Case Management creates an individualized program for each client that includes a combination of multiple service elements. The specific elements that comprise each service plan are selected after a comprehensive assessment and can be modified from week to week based upon ongoing evaluation of progress and the specific needs of each client as they progress in their recovery.
Clinically-informed case management services are the core component of every individualized plan developed for our clients. The focus of case management services is determined by ongoing assessment of the needs of the client at each point in their recovery. Common areas of focus include physical and mental well-being, navigating the healthcare system, career aspirations, family dynamics, and recovery from mental health or addictive disorders. Case managers are available by phone between weekly meetings to provide support and to help clients with accountability.
Mentors are skilled, non-clinical members of the case management team who are matched to clients based on temperament and help clients apply progress in therapy to real-world settings. Meetings with mentors can be scheduled around treatment or work commitments for improving activities of daily living (ADLs), developing life skills, identifying and linking with community resources, enhancing accountability and independence, and increasing self-efficacy. By working with clients in the gaps between their treatment or work schedule, mentors facilitate rapid progress toward reintegration plan goals through the implementation and completion of concrete action steps.
Like mentors, companions are skilled, non-clinical members of the case management team, who are available to provide structured support. Companions are present with the client continuously and are used when there is a need for greater safety and accountability. For clients who need uninterrupted assistance in the regulation of mental health or sobriety, companions not only provide safety and accountability, but also offer a consistent and calming presence.
Family Dynamics Support Group
Because family dynamics play an integral role in an individual’s recovery, Camden Case Management offers a bi-weekly Family Dynamics Support Group led by a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. This group provides a supportive environment for families to come together, share experiences, and acquire valuable insights from an expert facilitator.
