Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a program designed for individuals with mental health and substance abuse needs, who are living in the community.  CCS programs will provide psycho-social rehabilitation services to consumers who have needs for ongoing, high or low-intensity services resulting from mental health or substance use disorders.  CCS focuses on creating an individualized plan that is consumer driven, recovery oriented, and strength and outcome based, to maximize consumers independence.


This program is available to children who are functionally eligible as determined by the state-wide, web-based children's functional screen.  To enroll in this program, a child must be on Medical Assistance.

Cost of Services:
