Intensive Case Management

Intensive Case Management, also known as ICM, provides assistance to clients who are HIV positive in accessing medical and support services. The program focuses on clients who are currently incarcerated in a San Diego County jail or who require inpatient substance abuse treatment.

ICM works with HIV positive clients in San Diego County jails who are re-entering the community. While in custody, clients may participate with medical case managers to develop a post-release plan that addresses access to medical care, housing, and substance abuse treatment.

ICM offers inpatient treatment to HIV-positive individuals requesting treatment for addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. To be eligible for ICM and placement into residential drug treatment, clients must demonstrate a desire to end substance abuse, have no income or an income of less than $1,100 per month, and have an HIV diagnosis. ICM case managers work with each client throughout the treatment process (10-12 months) to promote successful outcomes and to assure linkages with primary care and other services as appropriate.

ICM is funded by Ryan White Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (RWTEA), Housing Opportunities for persons with AIDS (HOPWA) and through a contract with the County of San Diego Department of Housing and Community Development.
