Collaborative Approach to Recovery and Empowerment
(CARE+
SM)

The goal of the CAREModel is to provide individuals with a collaborative, comprehensive and whole-person treatment approach that incorporates psychosocial rehabilitation services, intensive case management services, individual and group treatment, and integrated medical/medication management services. The combination of skills training and case management services can help individuals with behavioral health conditions develop basic life skills, identify individual strengths, and improve their capacity to be successful in their life, work, relationships and community. CAREplaces special emphasis on Social Determinants in promoting health and health equity.

The CARE+ Model received an innovation grant from Stanford University Medicine and is nationally recognized for its successful outcomes, with an article published in the Journal of Health Affairs available here.

Integrated Care

People with behavioral health conditions and other psychiatric concerns may often need help in different aspects of their lives including work, living, social and learning environments. By utilizing a recovery model of behavioral health, our approach is centered on the individual's potential for recovery and focused on providing empowerment, self-determination, social inclusion, support, and various life skills. We are committed to providing services in as normalized an environment as possible using a strengths-based approach to care and treatment. CARE+ offers a whole person approach to identify root cause barriers affecting health and function and works collaboratively with the patient and medical provider to prioritize areas of focus. While full recovery is frequently the goal, we know that full recovery is seen as a process rather than an outcome.
