Adult Recovery Support Teams and Administrative Case Management
Recovery Coaching is a new service approach that blends Intensive Case Management and Resource Coordination. Services are delivered through a team-based approach and move the focus to recovery support. Coaches are trained and skilled in engagement, relationship building skills, decision making skills and in wellness management practices. While functions of linking and accessing are retained, relationship and skill building functions are primary. Teams will support consumers who are in early stages of recovery and consumers who have gained substantial abilities to manage their illness and their recovery. Services are delivered with an understanding that service and treatment are a means to an end; that end is recovery and wellness.

Hope is the foundation for recovery-the belief in an individual’s potential to experience a full and satisfying life and the belief that change is possible.
Recovery is a unique and personal journey. It embraces the individual rather than dwelling on the illness. Recovery respects an individuals’ cultural and spiritual differences as well as their special needs.
Individuals are encouraged to make their own informed choices about their lives and their support systems. These choices are respected.
- Peer Support
Peer support is a highly valued resource, which offers hope through the unique empathy and understanding that come from peer relationships (www.iamtheevidence.org).
- Community Focus/Integration
A recovery supportive environment provides the opportunity to live in, be connected to and flourish within the community of one’s choosing, with access to those community supports and resources that will best promote one’s own recovery.
- Personal Responsibility
Everyone is responsible for his or her life decisions and membership in the community at large. Recovery is directed by the individual, with support from contributing partners.
- Meaningful Life
Everyone is entitled to an individually determined life that allows for the pursuit of roles, interests and activities that add richness and meaning to his or her life.
Everyone is offered opportunities and support to be his or her own advocate and to have a voice for recovery.
Access to a variety of community resources, including behavioral health services, is necessary in promoting wellness and recovery. Resources can also include self-help, education, advocacy groups, peer support and information.
