ICF/IDD Centers

An ICF-IDD center is the most intensive residential service available to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. They are funded by Medicaid to serve individuals with intensive medical or behavioral needs who need more than a typical group home offers, but less than a skilled nursing level of care.

Group Homes

Group homes with the designation of DDA homes are designed to serve the adult consumer whose primary diagnosis is mental retardation or developmental disorder. This setting has as a primary function the improvement of consumers’ daily living skills and the promotion of community integration. In addition, the consumer is given the opportunity and encouragement to attempt vocational skill building and eventual vocational placement.

Community-Based Specialty Services

Assertive Community Treatment Team services use a team of mental health professionals to offer a full range of support services to people with serious behavioral health needs.  ACTT promotes rehabilitation and independence by teaching people the coping skills needed to live in their own communities safely and productively, engaging them in normal daily routines and healthy social interactions.  People receiving ACTT services often experience significant reductions in crisis situations such as homelessness, incarceration or repeated hospitalizations.

The goal of Community Support Services is to empower individuals to realize their strengths, integrate into their communities, and build the confidence to become their own best advocates.  Service users receive intensive community-based mental health and/or substance abuse rehabilitative services that not only provide treatment but also help improve a person’s quality of living through increased coping skills, better social supports, improved symptom and medication management, finding employment, and reduced occurrence of crisis situations such as hospitalization or incarceration.

These services are offered in non-residential settings and are focused on helping individuals reach their highest level of functioning.  Improvements in self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills are important goals.  Day supports serve to strengthen the skills learned in school or in physical, occupational, or speech therapies.  Day services may focus on prevocational activities such as improving attention span, motor skills, attendance, and the completion of assigned tasks.

By employing deaf professionals, RHA ensures that the unique needs of the deaf community and deaf culture are respected and integrated into all services, including mental health and employment services.  Our services are designed to offer support to deaf individuals as they seek to establish stable living arrangements, learn new skills and information, find helpful resources, and gain meaningful employment.  We believe that people should be as independent as possible in their lives, while receiving the support they need to be successful in reaching their goals.

Intensive In-Home Therapeutic Services are time-limited therapeutic intervention services for youth who are at high risk of placement in professional treatment centers or foster care due to serious behavioral health challenges.  IIH Services seek to prevent these out-of-home placements when possible and preserve normal family living arrangements through the use of in-home supports.  Intensive case management and monitoring, therapy and substance abuse treatment, and family counseling are some of the supports that can be provided depending on the child’s level of need.

On the path to recovery, it helps to have the support of someone who has been there before.  That’s where RHA Peer Support Specialists can help.  Peer Support Specialists are individuals with mental illness and/or addiction who have completed at least 40 hours of intensive Peer Support training and have demonstrated resiliency and success in their own personal recovery efforts.  Because of this, they can offer special insight as they help others in recovery build self-advocacy skills, learn to better manage their mental health needs/addiction, and find housing, employment, or education.  Peer Support Specialists can also help individuals develop their Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), which focuses on life goals, crisis planning, and relapse prevention.

When individuals need help with the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation and eating, and care of personal hygiene, our direct care professionals can offer support for these activities.

RHA Psychosocial Rehabilitation programs are designed to help adults with behavioral health challenges increase their ability to live independently, minimizing their need for ongoing professional intervention.  We help people set and pursue their own personal goals and implement steps to better manage their illness and their everyday lives.  Self-advocacy, management of personal care and daily living, pre-vocational activities, and supported employment are just some of the features our PSRs can offer.

Everyone needs a break now and then.  We understand and can help.  Our respite services allow you to have that night out or afternoon outing without worrying.  RHA respite services are available either at an individual’s home or at one of our respite centers.  Through respite services, we offer caregivers temporary relief and rest while ensuring a high level of care provided by skilled and compassionate professionals.

RHA offers supported employment to increase job opportunities for people with disabilities.  We are constantly building local and regional partnerships with the business community that can help the people we support find long-term employment.  We can help job seekers find suitable employment, coordinate transportation, and even offer on-the-job support for as long as needed.

Located in Greenville, the Tar River Center is a unique pediatric unit for children with complex medical needs providing 24 hour continual medical monitoring and technological support.  This program is a partnership with the East Carolina University Brody School of Medicine, and a leader in providing state of the art services.

Tenancy Support Team/Transition Management Services is a rehabilitation service intended to help individuals live more independently within their own communities by maintaining tenancy.  RHA offers discreet housing support to people with mental health needs and/or substance use challenges who are experiencing difficulty in maintaining tenancy due to these conditions.

What Is CAP/C?

What services are offered ?

Who qualifies for CAP/C ?

Children with ventilators, tracheostomies, feeding tubes, and severe seizures.

Children who need help with bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting when for medical reasons can not do these tasks independently.

Asking for help isn’t always easy.  Just knowing who to call can be a challenge often too hard to handle. RHA CAP/C case managers take the guess-work out and provide a warm voice to answer questions, provide instruction, and an ear to listen.

Our case managers and knowledgeable staff can guide you in reference to services, available programs, what information is needed, and how to get started.
