Mental Health Systems' Serial Inebriate Program is the first agency in the United States to implement a program designed specifically to target historically hard to reach chronic inebriates.

MHS' Serial Inebriate Program (SIP), a collaborative program, provides outpatient treatment, case management and referrals for chronically homeless alcoholics, who receive court-ordered treatment in place of incarceration. Mental Health Systems Serial Inebriate Program provides case management services including in-custody assessment and coordination of supportive services referrals such as housing, medical, mental health, AOD services; and facilitates the obtaining of identification card, birth certificate, social security card, food, clothing, transportation, GED or illiteracy services, and vocational services; and acts as a liaison between criminal justice and law enforcement systems.

MHS' SIP services also include:

  • Consulting services for communities starting Serial Inebriate Programs of their own
  • Curriculum unique to the population and designed specifically for the Serial Inebriate Program.
  • Presentations, videos, brochures, and training.
