Complex Case Management Program
The Complex Case Management program helps our members and their families achieve their goals following discharge from the LEAP program, a specialty psychiatric residential treatment program for dually diagnosed children with mental health and co-occurring autism. This program provides extensive care coordination to children with complex needs. Children with complex needs often face many challenges in getting the help they need.
Members who are eligible for this program will work with Care Coordination staff to:
- Complete assessments to identify their areas of need, and
- Develop a plan of care to address the needs identified.
Care Coordination will support the member’s family in creating a team that brings together community partners, medical staff, natural supports, and family in treatment planning and decision making. The goal is to reduce barriers to plan for moving back into the community with the right services and supports in place.
For more information on the referral process, please contact our Access and Information line at (800) 510-9132.
Priority Care for Pregnant Women
Pregnant women who abuse controlled substances, including alcohol, or are injection drug users may receive priority admission to appropriate services through Alliance.
Alcohol use by a woman who is pregnant can cause lifelong physical and behavioral problems in children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Using illegal drugs may cause underweight babies, birth defects or withdrawal symptoms after birth. Abuse of intravenous (IV) drugs is harmful to the mother as well and can damage the skin at the site of injection as well as internal organs. Infections can spread through the sharing of needles and contaminants in the drugs can cause serious health problems.
To access priority services, please call the Alliance Access and Information Center at (800) 510-9132.
