Addiction is a complex disease, and navigating recovery is an ongoing process that requires a multifaceted approach. Navigating the transition to sobriety, treatment, and rebuilding a life can be stressful. Substance abuse programs provide case management, make the transition easier and allow the person in recovery to focus on healing and rebuilding rather than administration, advocacy, or logistics.
At Sophros, we understand that recovery is a sensitive process, that people experiencing a substance use disorder are vulnerable, and that even the most organizationally savvy individuals often struggle with the quotidian tasks of organizing their lives. Managing life after rehab is still more challenging. Our dedicated team of case managers can ease the burden by allowing people in recovery to focus on healing and reintegration. If you or someone close to you is struggling with addiction, the time to act is now. Reach out to Sophros Recovery at 904.760.4295 today to learn more and speak with one of our experienced case managers.
What Is Case Management for Substance Abuse?
A case manager is, first and foremost, an advocate for a person living with or recovering from a substance use disorder. They help clients plan, facilitate, manage, and stay accountable to a treatment plan.
Case managers understand addiction and are skilled in locating treatment and resources. In addition, they can help interpret the language of rehab and aid clients in understanding the various options and approaches.
As a facilitator of recovery, a case manager gets to know their client personally, including their circumstances, family situation, medical needs, challenges they face, employment status, financial conditions, and legal challenges. The case manager may act as an advocate, supporting the client in interactions with doctors, lawyers, family members, employers, colleges, and other institutions related to their client’s recovery.
Case management supports clients by coordinating care and resources to optimize recovery. In addition, by reducing the friction associated with addiction treatment, case management maximizes the effectiveness of treatment.
