Clinical Case Manager
DESCRIPTION: Wild Acre Inns began in 1972, providing state of the art residential treatment for individuals suffering from a broad spectrum of mental health diagnoses and disorders.
In 2014, the company was sold. Along with new ownership came a new name: Wild Acre and Mental Health Solutions. Wild Acre and Mental Health Solutions provides a continuum of care for individuals with persistent mental issues, including thought disorders such as schizophrenia and schizoaffective d/o, and brittle bipolar disorder. This care is provided in long term residential settings, which help to primarily support residents in managing tasks and activities of daily living. Wild Acre and Mental Health Solutions also serves young adults, with primary mood disorders, in a shorter term and more active residential setting. The newest program is designed to treat individuals with dual diagnosis to help increase their independence and to maintain sobriety.
Wild Acre and Mental Health Solutions also provides homecare care services for individuals who require various levels of oversight and support to safely remain living in their home, or in preparation of a step down from a more structured environment to a more independent living environment.
The Clinical Case Manager is responsible for providing comprehensive case management for individuals with mental illness and substance abuse. The Clinical Case Manager will work closely with the Program Director and Day Program Director in the formulation of treatment planning, responding to crisis within the milieu, and planning for the needs of residents to ensure efficacy of service delivery.
