Many times individuals come into our care with extraneous circumstances in their day-to-day lives. Not correctly dealing with these circumstances can create stress and anxiety which is counterproductive to the treatment process. Sometimes just getting into treatment can be enough to worry about. We have staff experienced to help with all of your case management needs. Some of the many issues we assist with include:
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Paperwork for Your Human Resources Department.
FMLA leave is offered by some larger companies. If your job provides FMLA leave proper documentation is required by both your company and the government. Out caseworkers can assist individuals under our care in filing this paperwork to make sure all components of FMLA are met.
Short-Term Disability (STD) Paperwork
If an individual has Short-Term Disability insurance and qualifies, our caseworkers can make sure that all proper paperwork is filled out and submitted to the necessary individuals. To learn more about Short-term Disability, please visit here.
Correspondence with Attorneys, Probation, CPS, etc.
Many individuals enter treatment with ongoing legal matters. Our caseworkers can make sure that all requirements are met for attorneys, probation officers, as well as other agencies which require communication. It is essential to communicate with legal entities before entering treatment as circumstances can significantly impact what is needed from individuals before beginning and during the treatment process.
Filing Medical Withdrawals from School
Many high schools, colleges, and trade schools offer students the ability to medically withdrawal from semesters, so their grades are not negatively impacted by their absence. As we regularly treat students our caseworkers are able to assist clients in filing a medical withdrawal request.
Assistance Applying for College
Many clients wish to return to or begin higher education when they start their life in recovery. We have excellent relationships with colleges across the nation which offer collegiate recovery communities. We have helped clients who have poor GPA's, as well as criminal histories, get accepted by top-tier universities to continue their education in recovery.
Completing the GED
The General Equivalency Degree is required for many jobs, as well as colleges and trade schools. When clients have not finished high school or GED's it can be a significant roadblock for a successful life in recovery. Our caseworkers can help individuals study for and pass the GED exam, to create positive momentum in their lives moving forward.
Working with Insurance Companies When Issues Arise
Issues with insurance companies regularly arise during addiction treatment. Our case management department is highly skilled at appealing insurance decisions as well as communicating the necessary information to insurance companies. Our goal is to make sure that as little cost for treatment falls onto our clients as possible.
Correspondence with County Clerk and City on Class C Tickets
Class C tickets for misdemeanor offenses can become problematic if ignored for an extended period of time. Through individualized case management, our clients are able to address these misdemeanor tickets during their stay at Aspire, so when they return to society, they can do so with a clean slate.
Making Referrals and Linking Clients to Providers for All Other Medical Issues
If clients have medical concerns which fall outside of the abilities of our treatment teams we have an extensive network of providers for which referrals can be made. Our goal is to help each client be treated as an individual, and through proper referrals, we can assure that all medical needs are met by a recognized professional in the necessary field.
Making referrals and linking clients to all other services such as (opening checking accounts, automobile related issues, dentists, etc.)
It is common for clients not to know the processes involved with some aspects of daily life. Our case management team can refer clients to reliable resources for taking care of even the smallest concerns they may have while in treatment.
