The Community Rehabilitation Support (CRS) Program assists persons
who have severe psychiatric disorders in collaboration with the
Department of Mental Health (DMH). The Department of Mental Health
determines eligibility for DMH services and approves DMH eligible
clients for CRS services.
The Community Rehabilitation Support Program follows a psychosocial
rehabilitation model of treatment and addresses the person from a
holistic perspective; body, mind, and spirit.
The goal of psychosocial rehabilitation is recovery and rehabilitation.
Treatment begins with a person entering a process of recovery,
learning to successfully manage his or her psychiatric illness.
Rehabilitation involves overcoming barriers to living successfully in
the community with a psychiatric illness.
Psychosocial rehabilitation is a psychological, social, and spiritual
journey toward a life that is satisfying and meaningful.
Treatment plans are designed individually to meet the specific needs
of each person.
This begins with a diagnostic evaluation and a rehabilitation
assessment of needs that identify barriers to recovery and rehabilitation.
A psychosocial rehabilitation practitioner or clinician assists the
person with interventions that will reduce or eliminate barriers.
These barriers many times involve psychosocial functioning, illness
and disability management, and cognitive functioning.
A practitioner or clinician understand that needs change over time
and that assessment is an ongoing process in treatment.
As part of comprehensive quality of care, rehabilitation
interventions will occur concurrently with clinical psychotherapy and
psychopharmacological treatment as necessary. If a person has a
history of substance abuse, the rehabilitation interventions will
specifically address both severe mental illness and substance abuse disorder.
The Community Rehabilitation Support Program has a continuum of
practitioners. These include:
These practitioners function as a team and provide a comprehensive
coordination of psychosocial rehabilitation services. Practioners
also network with other community resources and minimize or eliminate
the assistance of psychosocial rehabilitation services.
We believe that persons with psychiatric illnesses can live
productive, meaningful, and satisfying lives in the community. They
can contribute to the overall quality of our communities and culture.
