Adult rehabilitation mental health services
To operate in the county, providers must apply with the county. Before the county application is approved, providers must get certified by the state. Providers can submit their county application while state certification is in process. The county will review the application and send a letter of approval if providers show they're working with the state on certification. County application (DOC)
When the state notifies the county of provider certification, the county will add the provider to its list of approved providers. Providers are added to the county provider directory, used by county social workers to refer clients. Site visits and inspections are conducted by the state. State information and resources

Integrated case management
When a client has two or more case managers, a coordinated effort is used to provide the best service possible.
As part of this effort, contracted case managers become part of a team. In addition to case managers, teams can include a variety of county staff and contracted providers working with the client. The team will discuss client needs and coordinate services provided to the client.
Results of a team discussion could include changes to service for the client or changes to the case manager’s role. The case manager will communicate with other team members and, when needed, with the client about changes as they occur.
To coordinate services, the team:
- Shares information with each other including primary household contacts, respective service responsibilities, client goals and progress, challenges and success stories
- Identifies and eliminates any conflicting expectations of the client, and any duplication of services
- Alerts team members to current or upcoming issues, problems, or needs that affect the client and works together to find solutions
