Community Mental Health Support

Mental Health Support Services

Mental Health Support Services are training and support to enable individuals with significant functional limitations to achieve and maintain community stability and independence in the most appropriate, least restrictive environment. The treatment focus is on assisting the client with independent living skills and is therefore appropriate for older clients and adults.

We provide community based counseling and training services for adults who have difficulty managing independently in their environment because of mental health and/or substance abuse issues. These barriers present challenges to the client that can possibly lead them to homelessness, repeated hospitalizations, and/or harm to self and/or others.

This service helps the client to realize a decrease in barriers and an increase in functioning and self sufficiency. By providing the necessary mental health counseling, training and support, clients realize their ability to live as independently as possible.

Substance Abuse Services offers a comprehensive individualized substance abuse crisis intervention program for adults who are in crisis from substance abuse and/or co-occurring disorders of mental health and/or mental retardation.

Crisis Intervention Services are substance abuse treatment services, available 24 hours a day, seven days per week, to provide assistance to individuals experiencing dysfunction related to substance use which requires immediate clinical attention. OAS objective is to prevent exacerbation of the condition and injury and others and provide treatment in less restrictive environment.

  • To prevent exacerbation of a condition;

The program offers participants the opportunity to stabilize in the least restrictive treatment environment. In therapy, clients gain an understanding of the disease concept of addiction, the consequences of continued abuse of substances, and barriers to healthy interpersonal relationships. Clients will address issues of motivation, build skills to resist substance use, replace substance-using activities with constructive behavior, improve problem-solving abilities and clearly understand how substance use affects mental health and other areas of the client’s life.

Therapy also assists in the development of interpersonal relationships and the ability to function in the family and community. Aftercare planning and follow-up will be implemented to help clients sustain their path of recovery.
