We are a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life for adults impacted by mental health and substance use disorders. Incorporated in 1999, PLAN was formed by a group of families with disabled family members — mostly sons and daughters — concerned about who would care for their disabled dependents when they were no longer able to do so themselves.
PLAN of Central Ohio offers an activities program where clients can form friendships, practice social skills and just have fun. We meet two times a month, transporting clients to and from each activity. Our case manager/client ratio is approximately 1 to 5 to provide a safe, supervised outing. Our program includes casual dinners at inexpensive restaurants, outings to movies, and trips to local places of interest.
In addition to future care planning, PLAN of Central Ohio offers individual services that enhance our clients’ quality of life and provide some respite for their families from the demands of providing primary care. Working in tandem with other private and public agencies, PLAN provides advocacy, supplemental case management, and socialization for those with a variety of diagnoses. Our clients include those with mental illness, mental retardation, developmental disabilities, brain injury, and use disorders. Our service area includes Franklin and the surrounding counties.
