The primary role of a Community Based Rehabilitation Specialist (CBRS) is to aid service participants in developing skills necessary to live independently, or in preventing movement to a more restrictive living situation. Interventions take place in individual and/or group sessions, and must follow the participant’s written Service Plan. CBR Specialists are directly supervised by a regional program manager.

Individual Qualifications

CBRS workers are required to pass a criminal history background check, have no more than 2 driving violations within the past 3 years, and have at least a bachelor degree from a nationally accredited university or college. If a person possesses a social work or other licensable degree in the State of Idaho, they must obtain a license prior to being able to work. Persons working as a CBRS must obtain a Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) certificate within 30 months of any experience (including from other agencies).
