This TIP contains information on the best practice guidelines on case management for substance abuse treatment providers. It serves to educate program coordinators and facilitators about the factors to consider as they decide to modify or implement case management activities. Many substance abuse clients arrive for treatment with a number of other social problems and mental health disorders. The TIP explains how the coordinated approach of case management lends itself to the treatment of substance abuse. It states that the comprehensive continuum of services is designed to provide engagement and motivation, primary treatment services, and support services that will enable individuals to maintain long-term sobriety while managing life in the community. It includes discussion on case management in the community context, evaluation and quality assurance, and what is important to learn about working with the special needs populations. Appendixes include: "Bibliography,""Practice Dimensions,""Managed Healthcare Organizational Readiness Guide and Checklist: Special Report,""Resource Panel," and "Field Reviewers." (Contains 4 figures and approximately 150 resources.) (JDM)
