Young Adult Residential Case Management Program

Program Description/Services

Our program provides a structured recovery environment for young men ages 18-24. We operate under a peer support model that adheres to a total abstinence policy. Our program is staffed from 8am-11am Monday through Friday with peer house managers providing direction and support over nights and during weekends, although a staff member is always on call in case of an emergency.

Clients are expected to maintain full time employment or enrollment in an educational institution while they reside in the program. Clients can utilize case managers, SMOC Career Center and other local resources to assist with obtaining employment or acquiring a GED or other education as needed. We require all participants to attend weekly individual and group therapy, which are provided through SMOC Behavioral Health. Daily attendance at 12-step or other peer recovery groups is also required. Random urine screens are utilized to maintain adherence to our abstinence policy, and we offer relapse prevention and intervention guidance as needed on a case by case basis.

Case managers assist clients with creating Individual Service Plans in order to map out client goals and provide personal accountability and support towards achieving those goals. We can also assist with communication between clients and probation officers, family, doctors, or any other outside person involved in a clients’ path to recovery.

At YARCM, we work to assist clients with constructing a foundation for long term recovery through skill development, access to resources, and adherence to a recovery process. This system is designed to improve interpersonal skills, self-management, personal responsibility, and lead to productive community membership.

The SMOC YARCM program offers:

  • Compassionate, evidence-based supportive case management
  • A convenient location in downtown Framingham
  • Peer support groups
  • Relapse prevention support
  • Recovery/personal skills group
  • Assistance in accessing medical, psychiatric, and dental care
  • Career counseling

Eligibility Requirements
