Specialized Recovery Services Program

The Specialized Recovery Services (SRS) Program is another community-based service. A Medicaid program, SRS is for individuals aged 21 and older with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI) or certain diagnosed chronic conditions (DCC). Direction Home Akron Canton works in partnership with CareSource to deliver services available through the program, including three services not available under a traditional Medicaid benefit plan:

  • Recovery Management
  • Individualized Placement and Support (Supported Employment)
  • Peer Recovery Support

There is no cost to apply and no co-payments or premiums for the SRS program. Once enrolled, the individual will keep their Medicaid benefits.

If you’re interested in applying for either of these programs, the best way to get started is to contact the Aging and Disability Resource Center at 877.770.5558.
