Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a program that helps people of all ages live their best lives. It focuses on unique needs that relate to mental health and substance use.
Who is eligible
CCS is for people who have needs that, if ignored, could lead to being hospitalized in times of crisis.
The CCS screening process confirms who is eligible for the program. A tribal nation or county CCS provider completes the screening process.
What services are covered
CCS is meant to help with recovery. The program works to stabilize and address mental health and substance use concerns, which include:
- Self-managing physical health and social health.
- Meeting basic needs, such as housing, education, and work.
Those enrolled in CCS take control of their treatment and recovery. They work with a team to decide which services and supports will help them reach their goals. These services and supports may include:
- Diagnostic tests.
- Help to manage medicines.
- Job-related skills training.
- Peer support.
- Personal and/or family psychoeducation.
- Physical health monitoring.
- Screening and assessment.
- Skill growth and refinement.
- Substance use treatment.
- Wellness management and recovery.
