Preliminary Findings from the Thurston|Mason Pilot

THE INTENSIVE CASE MANAGEMENT (ICM) Pilot Program aims to improve outcomes for individuals with co-occurring chemical dependency and mental health conditions. This report provides a preliminary examination of the impact of the ICM pilot program in Thurston and Mason counties, where it is offered as a community-based, stand-alone service. The program has been in operation since late fall of 2005. We examine the impact of ICM services on Medicaid-reimbursed medical expenses, risk of arrest, and likelihood of engagement in alcohol or other drug (AOD) treatment in the year following the initial ICM encounter.
