The majority of Thresholds’ services take place out in the community, not in a clinic or other office-based setting. Our model is to bring wraparound services to wherever our clients are.
Thresholds clients are all unique; they come from vastly different backgrounds and arrive with different needs, talents, and hopes. As such, a variety of services are at their full disposal, ranging from access to medical care and psychiatric treatment, job readiness and work placement, educational opportunities, or a safe and stable place to live. Thresholds believes everyone contributes to society. Everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of value, self-respect, compassion, and dignity.
Depending on needs and severity of symptoms, an individual is connected to one of three levels of treatment intensity: the Assertive Community Treatment Team; the less intensive Community Support Team, and finally the Community Support Individual Team, which is considered the final level of service before full self-sufficiency. These models use a multidisciplinary team approach to provide intensive services where and when our clients need them—24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our staffed teams include peer support specialists and practitioners with expertise in psychiatry, nursing, social work, substance use treatment, and employment. These teams initiate the housing search, develop a care plan, and continue to work with clients over the long-term. Because team members share responsibility for providing treatment and rehabilitation services, the entire team supports each client’s personalized goal of recovery.
