Adult Support Services

Are you stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious? Do you need some support to help make better life choices? An Adult Support Services specialist can provide you with behavioral support services and help connect you to other community resources that can enhance your daily functioning while building confidence and self-sufficiency.

When an adult is referred to the program, individual family members may also receive services if treatment intervention is indicated. The program goal is to offer independent living skills and communication skills that improve the individual's ability to manage his/her mental health symptoms in order to be able to live and participate in the community.

What types of services are provided?

Adult Support Services are skill-building interventions. These services are not the same as therapy services. Areas addressed may include:
● Independent living skills
● Social skills development
● Relationship skills
● Communication skills
● Employment-related skills
● Problem-solving skills
● Conflict resolution skills

Who evaluates the individual?

Each individual is seen by a Bethany staff person who is a Licensed Practitioner of the Healing Arts (LPHA) and a therapist. This individual will complete a thorough assessment, make diagnostic and treatment recommendations, order Adult Support Services as indicated, and provide referrals to community resources.

How do I make a referral for Adult Support Services?

Referrals can be made by a counselor, physician, a hospital, or by an individual who is concerned about his/her mental health and well-being.

Who is eligible?

An adult (18+) must be eligible for Title 19 / Medicaid services in Iowa. Bethany accepts all three MCOs: Amerigroup, AmeriHealth Caritas, and United Healthcare Community Plan.
