Centralized Hospital Aftercare Services

The Centralized Hospital Aftercare Services (CHAS) programs provide a full array of behavioral health services such as intensive case management, medication support and integrated medical care for individuals who may benefit from structured levels of care either upon discharge from long-term locked facilities or within community home settings. The target population is limited to consumers discharged from locked facilities requiring a lower level of care. Case management, therapy and linkage services are provided at state hospitals, Institutes for Mental Disease (IMDs), Enhanced Board & Care facilities and community settings. The goal is to assist consumers to improve their functionality in the community and achieve a higher level of independence and recovery. CHAS oversees the following programs:
