At Embark Recovery we feel it is especially important for our patients to have advocates. Many times, an individual in early recovery has a difficult time advocating for themselves. This is where the role of our Case Managers comes in to assist our patients and their families in this difficult process.
Case Management is a very collaborative process. The assigned Case Manager works alongside the patient to help identify specific challenges and work through them. They assist our patients with many needs including:
- Setting up any outside doctor and/or dental appointments
- Completion of intake tasks and orientation
- Assistance with discharge planning
- Monitor of overall patient well-being
- Address questions or concerns pertaining to the patient’s recovery
- Provide assistance with legal matters (like probation or court dates),
- Collaborate with families or loved ones for a patient’s recovery
Our Case Managers work with the entire family system to ensure a stronger, more accountable recovery system. The monitoring and testing protocol that has been developed allows the us to work with the patient in our center to create new motivation to change. Our case managers work closely with the family, patient, and even other treatment providers if necessary so that everyone understands and supports the same goals for the patient. By creating a streamlined, long-term treatment plan, there is a much greater chance for continued sobriety.
If you or a loved one feel that you could benefit from services like this, please do not hesitate to call a treatment professional at Embark Recovery. We are here 24/7 via phone at 1-877-215-2224 or chat with us on the web!
Hi, my name is Anthony Vega. I am from San Diego California and moved to Arizona in 2012. I came out to Prescott over 3 years ago for recovery and have been here ever since. Recovery and sobriety have become everything in my life and this is why I am in this field. I am very passionate about helping people change their lives and showing them that there is a life to be had in sobriety far greater than any life in active addiction. To get to that point is a great challenge and my job is to help as best I can along the journey.
Michael attended Landmark College in Putney Vermont for psychology and communication, as well as Berkeley City College in California where he studied business and anthropology. He is one of two case managers at Embark who communicate with family members on a regular basis, and help the patients navigate medical, legal, and occupational needs. His passion for helping addicts comes from his own battle with addiction. Michael is familiar with the challenges that this disease brings to every area of life. He takes pride in helping these men find their way through early recovery.
