Adult In-Home Intervention Services
About Adult In-Home Intervention:
South Central Alabama Mental Health has an In-Home Intervention team for each of the counties in our catch-man area: Butler, Coffee, Crenshaw, and Covington Counties. An In-Home Intervention team consists of 2 staff members: a Master’s level therapist and a Bachelor’s level case manager. Each team member has completed Alabama Department of Mental Health’s Case Management training, as well as CPR, First Aide, and Non-Violent Crisis Resolution.
The teams’ general purpose is to prevent psychiatric hospitalization or to aide consumers in transitioning from an in-patient setting to an outpatient setting. The In-Home Intervention staff is available 24 hours per day. Much of the work with the team is accomplished within the consumer’s home and consumers are generally visited weekly. Duration of treatment is determined on an individual basis as indicated on the treatment plan.
