Case Management 

Project Reconnect: A United Way SELA & BCM Partner Program



For individuals that have been recently released from incarceration, this CADA re-entry program breaks the cycle of criminal behavior, substance abuse and recidivism by combining psychoeducational support groups and transitional planning in correctional institutions with effective community-based treatment, recovery, and re-entry related services. Project Reconnect works to expand substance abuse treatment and related mental health services available to ex-offenders in the community by providing referrals and follow-up to substance abuse treatment programs. The program is designed to bridge the gap in aftercare by transitioning from re-entry into outpatient substance abuse treatment with a heavy emphasis on individualized case management.


Self & Safety: Through a New Lens (OP Group)

The purpose of this program is for the treatment of mild to moderate co-occurring disorders and trauma. The program uses a curriculum that has been found beneficial in the treatment of co-occurring disorders and trauma. The goal for the program is to provide individuals with a trusting space to discuss their struggles with mental health and substance use in hopes that they can rediscover how to cope in safer, healthier ways.
