Behavioral Health Reintegration Assistance / Mental Health Treatment
Behavioral Health Reintegration (BHR) is a first line resource of clinical case management services designed to assist parolees with their successful reintegration back into the community. Located in most parole offices, BHR is staffed with psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers available to address immediate mental health and/or substance use needs. Additionally, the BHR clinicians work closely with each parolee to develop an individualized reintegration plan (IRP) designed to identify areas of need and evaluate for protective as well as restrictive variables in order to devise functional and realistic plans for successful reintegration. BHR emphasizes linking parolees to long-term community-based services and resources that will sustain once discharged from parole supervision.
Methods of services BHR provides include, but are not limited to, evaluation of mental illness and substance use, on-going assessment of symptom severity and intervention, medication management, brief individual therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, and case management support.
BHR also provides Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT). Your parole agent can refer you to BHR for MAT services. An assessment will be conducted by a BHR clinician. If MAT is appropriate for you, the BHR psychiatrist will prescribe an injectable MAT.
Please note, opiate maintenance therapy (Suboxone, Methadone) is not prescribed by BHR psychiatrists.
