Case Management

Getting sober, stabilized or re-stabilized is the new beginning, staying stopped, staying on required medication, living sober, staying connected and doing life is the next chapter.


When a loved one’s psychiatric, emotional, behavioral and/or addiction problem interfere with normal life functioning to the degree an inpatient hospital or residential stay is called for, “aftercare,” or continuing care, services are a major part of a sustained recovery. This applies to primary mental health problems, to addictions and, certainly, to patients with dual diagnoses.


MHBA offers Case Management and monitoring through a menu of continuing care, accountability and support services for adult children and their parents, some services are offered through our own providers, and others through coordination with local providers. All this to insure the maximum likelihood of long term mental health, sobriety and maturation, along with family harmony and fulfillment.
