Intensive Case Management (ICM) Program

The University of New Mexico Office of Community Health, in partnership with the Bernalillo County Department of Behavioral Health Services CARE Campus, A New Awakening, First Nations Community Healthsource, Casa de Salud, Fathers Building Futures, and Albuquerque Center for Hope and Recovery provides an innovative and coordinated interagency approach to work with high-need clients at various points of entry. 

The program engages community agencies that serve people experiencing problems related to alcohol and substance use and expands their capacity to also address medical and social needs including behavioral health care and substance use treatment. The ICM program aims to increase interagency collaboration to provide intensive case management services by deploying community health workers with specialized training in the role of intensive case managers. By promoting autonomy and self-determination, intensive case managers collaborate with clients to assess their specific needs and develop individualized service plans that outline the steps that will lead to improved personal health and wellbeing.

This project serves some of the most at-risk, underserved, and marginalized members of our community. For more information, please contact Jennider Garcia at: [email protected] or phone: 505-433-7418.
