Spartanburg Area Mental Health Intensive Community Treatment Services include individual therapy, family therapy, medication management, and skills training. Services can be provided in the therapist’s office, the community, or in the family home, depending on the need and preferences of the team.
ICT stands for “Intensive Community Treatment,” and is a program designed to provide services to patients with serious, persistent mental illness out in the community through a treatment team approach. This program is a long-term service that “meets patients where they are at,” to help them be as successful as possible at maintaining placement in the community, and avoiding further hospitalizations/incarcerations. Patients in ICT will receive contact regularly (from weekly, up to several times a day) through phone calls, in-home visits, Therapy services (individual, family, group), PRS, Peer Support services, Nursing services, etc.
We are currently only serving patients in Spartanburg County, but will be moving into Union and Cherokee Counties as well.
The purpose of the Intensive Community Treatment program is to serve patients with severe and persistent mental illness, especially those with co-occurring disorders, at a high risk of re-hospitalization, homeless and the recently incarcerated, who require intensive treatment to maintain stability.
Intensive community treatment services are available for people with acute, complex needs who require outpatient services provided in their daily environment rather than at a behavioral health services site.
Intensive Case Management (ICM) teams work with people who have serious mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorders, many of whom are homeless. The goal is to engage the individual in services to improve their quality of life and prevent hospitalization, incarceration and homelessness. Services include:
Wraparound services (help with housing and other basic needs)
Mental health supports
Jail Diversion (services for individuals with severe mental illness whose behavior has involved the police)
Please check out the ICT brochure and referral forms. If you have someone you think may be a good fit for this program, please staff with a member of the ICT team and complete a referral form. We will then complete an assessment and determine if they are appropriate for ICT!
Robert “Chris” (Peer Support Specialist): “Joining the staff of SAMHC is something I am exceedingly thankful for. ICT is an opportunity to use my experiences with mental health recovery toward helping others live fulfilling and purposeful lives. Not a bad conclusion to a 50,000 mile drive across America!”
Courtney, MSW (Mental Health Counselor): “I am one of the counselors on the ICT team. I am dedicated to our clients here at Mental Health to support them in their recovery each day. Fun fact: I enjoy organizing so I express this ironically through my obsession with CORK boards :)”
Veronica, LPC-A (Mental Health Counselor): “I like short walks on the beach, my dog Moose, pickles, sloths, and my fiancé Christian.”
Michelle, RN (Nurse): Michelle has years of inpatient psychiatric nursing experience and brings this invaluable knowledge to the team. She provides injections, medication monitoring, nursing assessments, and other nursing services to our ICT patients in home as well as at the center.
