JBS Mental Health Authority offers a wide array of residential treatment programs as well as independent living settings with varying levels of support for adults with mental illness. Referrals are received from the Alabama Department of Mental Health, Bryce Hospital, local hospital psychiatric units, community agencies and the community at large.
Transitional Care Programs
The Transitional Care Programs provide treatment and housing for 146 individuals. This program is comprised of seven Transitional homes and three MOM (Meds, Observation and Meals) Apartment Programs. The programs are staffed and operated by JBS. Individuals in the Transitional homes participate in Day Treatment activities that emphasize an educational and rehabilitative approach to recovery.
As individuals leave Transitional Care programs, efforts are made to place them in a supported housing arrangements using our Ready–Set – Go Model, and referrals are made to local mental health centers to ensure continued support and treatment.
Extended Care Programs
The Extended Care Programs provide treatment and housing for 203 individuals and include Group Homes, Adult Foster Care Homes and Forensic MOM Apartment Programs. The Group Homes and MOM apartments are staffed and operated by JBS. Individuals in Group homes participate in Rehabilitation Day Programming activities that emphasize an educational and rehabilitative approach to recovery.
Adult Foster Care services are subcontracted with individual providers certified through the Alabama Department of Mental Health. Individuals in Adult Foster Care receive case management services and clinical services via the local community Mental Health Center in their catchment area.
As individuals leave the Extended Care programs, efforts are made to place them within the Transitional Care Program using our Ready–Set–Go Model. The Extended Care Program is also designed to work with persons whose unique behavioral needs present a challenge to traditional community settings.
JBS has developed independent living settings which provide an opportunity for individuals with mental illness to live independently, with support when needed and during emergencies.
Horizon Apartments (19-bed apartment complex), Greenwood Apartments (10-bed apartment complex) and Carson Apartments (9-bed apartment complex) all provide a resident manager available on a 24-hour basis.
JBS also owns and operates four, two-bed Townhomes for independent living. Although no resident manager is located on the premises, case management services are provided to all residents.
Additionally, JBS operates 20 scattered site apartments for individuals who are both homeless and experience a mental illness. Case management support is provided as well as Day Treatment activities.
