A treatment plan for alcohol and drug addiction is a thorough, personalized road map intended to lead a person through the healing process. A group of healthcare specialists, including clinicians, therapists, and counselors, design this plan after consulting carefully with the patient to determine their particular needs and develop a strategy that is appropriate for their particular circumstance.
Without an addiction case manager, you rely on those teams to relay critical information as you transition from one stage to the next. Otherwise, it becomes your responsibility. When this happens, critical information can and does get lost in communication. If you want to prevent that, you need a case manager.
Along with coordinating each stage along the continuum of care, individuals who aren’t sure what to do next can benefit from the guidance and direction of a case manager who has helped similar individuals navigate the recovery process. Case managers provide unbiased, professional guidance when in doubt about where to begin or where to turn next.
