Similar to Intensive Case Management, Critical Time Intervention (CTI) is a time-limited, intensive case management model that focuses on the goals of a client. CTI is more specifically used to help a client transition from residential to community care. In a residential setting, such as a hospital, correctional facility, foster home, shelter, rehabilitation center, or even military service, their recovery journey is completely governed by a team of professionals. It can be jarring for an individual who has spent significant time in programs like these to enter the community and return to or begin independent living. That’s why CTI exists. Case managers who use CTI see this time of transition in the client’s life as a potentially major pivot point. Using this model, the case manager and other professionals collaborate to help prepare clients for their next stages of life. Such clients need to develop a community support network in order to ensure their future success, and CTI helps build that as well as guide their transition.
