Types of Community Facilitation
+ Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) formerly Intake & Response
ILC is short term intervention, providing expert advice on ABI and AOD (alcohol and other drug) to you, your families and other stakeholders. Intake & response serves as the triage function for all service delivery across arbias programs. It is generally conducted over the telephone with you and you are then referred to an appropriate service.
+ Medium to long-term community facilitation intervention
Medium to long-term community facilitation intervention can vary dependant on assessment, individual treatment planning, implementation, coordination, advocacy, monitoring and evaluating options and services to meet a client’s needs.
+ Monitoring Response
The monitoring component of community facilitation services includes less intensive involvement with individuals diagnosed with ABI & AOD including planning the client’s exit from community facilitation services.
