This chapter argues that continued use of inherited models of case management limits the progress that otherwise could be made in actualizing this shift from a deficit- and institution-based framework to a recovery and community integration paradigm. This paradigm calls for new models of community-based practice that move beyond the management of cases and beyond merely semantic changes that introduce new terms for old practices. One such model that appears to be emerging in the field is that of tour guide, community guide, or, “recovery guide.” Prior to introducing this model, the chapter first reviews existing models of case management that have underlain the last 40 years of community-based practice. It then outlines the principles of care that ground a recovery-oriented alternative; describes the key components of the recovery guide model; and considers some of the broader implications of this model for community-based practice.
