Home Intervention is a short term crisis stabilization/hospital diversion program within WCMHS that provides supportive counseling to individuals who would otherwise require hospitalization. The program is unique in that it is a collaborative effort between the Intensive Care Services (ICS) and Community Support Program (CSP) divisions of Washington County Mental Health Services and serves both WCMHS clients as well as the general public. Home Intervention provides integrated psychiatric, nursing and mental health services in a community-based setting. The Home Intervention Staff provide a high level of supportive counseling, assist with community integration, identify and mitigate stressors, and identify natural and community supports as the individuals we serve transition home.
Home Intervention includes an embedded program called the Supported Alcohol Withdrawal Program that was designed with community partners to safely and medically assist individuals with withdrawal from alcohol. During this 5-day program, individuals work closely with Home Intervention counselors to determine the next steps in their recovery- this may include intensive outpatient or an intensive inpatient program that address alcohol use disorders. Individuals are referred to longer term programs to promote their future success in maintaining their sobriety.
