Psychosocial Rehabilitation

Psychosocial Rehabilitation

Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment (CORE) services provide opportunities for eligible adult Medicaid beneficiaries with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders to receive services in their own home or community. Fundamental to CORE services is a person-centered and recovery-focused provision of care. Argus Community’s caring staff will provide rehabilitative counseling, recovery activities, interventions and supports to help individuals improve their self-management of, and reduce relapse to, substance use, the negative effects of psychiatric or emotional symptoms, relapse triggers, and cravings.

The program focuses on healthy living, building natural social supports in the home and community, and developing or improving personal autonomy, health, social skills, wellness, and personal care. Every member receives a comprehensive evaluation, a patient-centered individualized care plan with self-stated goals, and a program of therapies unique to their treatment needs. Services chosen by program participants are designed to support independent community living in the setting of his or her own choice and support integration in the community including opportunities to seek employment, engage in community life, control personal resources, and develop prosocial activities.

Eligibility Requirements

Psychosocial Rehabilitation is a Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment (CORE) service available for people 21 and over who are enrolled in a Medicaid Managed Care Health and Recovery Plan (HARP) and found eligible after completing the NYS Eligibility Assessment. An individual must have the desire and willingness to receive rehabilitation and recovery services as part of his or her individual service plan, with the goal of living their lives fully integrated in the community and, if applicable, to learn skills to support long-term recovery from substance use through independent living, social support, and improved social and emotional functioning.
