The Community Support Team (CST) is a service for individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders that might need more than office-based services. CST services are provided by a team that combines therapeutic interventions, skill development, and case management in a setting that best fits the individual’s specific needs in order to achieve their goals. CST assists individuals in all areas of functioning to help decrease crisis episodes, reduce hospitalizations and/or incarcerations, obtain stable housing, connect with educational or vocational opportunities, increase independence, improve social skills and learn coping strategies for symptom reduction/management. CST encourages individuals to discover their strengths, to utilize community resources, and promote self-advocacy for their rehabilitative and recovery goals.
The Early Recovery Team (ERT) is a grant-funded community-based team that specializes in working with individuals in the early stages of addiction recovery, regardless of insurance benefits. The team helps individuals in Haywood and Jackson Counties struggling with addiction become engaged in services in which they may have been hesitant to engage. ERT is staffed by both Clinicians and Peers. Peer Support staff serve to enhance the development of natural supports, as well as coping and self-management skills; and may provide supportive services to assist an individual in community re-entry following hospitalization or incarceration. Staff will use evidence-based practices including enhancing motivation, relapse prevention planning, developing safe coping skills, and changing destructive thought patterns. ERT accepts referrals from many sources, including jail, hospitals, DSS, and other community agencies. Please contact our Team Lead, Brittany Holt, at 828-351-4224, or our office at 828-631-3973, to inquire about services.
