Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) are designed to assist individuals enrolled in Health and Recovery Plans to receive supportive services either in their own home or in the community. Fundamental to HCBS 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 service 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.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation is a Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) 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.
