Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a recovery focused, integrated behavioral health program for adults with mental illness and/or substance use disorders or children with severe emotional disturbance. CCS provides a coordinated and comprehensive array of recovery services, treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation services that assist individuals to utilize professional, community and natural supports to address their needs. The program is person and/or family–centered and uses a consumer directed approach to recovery services. While CCS services are person and family-centered, services are provided by a team of professionals, peer specialists and supports, all coordinated by a CCS Service Facilitator.
CCS programs are designed to be community-based, enhance recovery, and continually build on quality improvement.
Each CCS program is led by a CCS Coordinating Committee. The Coordinating Committee is comprised of consumers and their family members, county personnel, and advocates/providers. CCS is built upon choice and it is important that consumers and their family members are engaged in the program development and quality improvement processes within the program.
CCS services are eligible for Medicaid reimbursement for those individuals that qualify for Medicaid. However, only Counties and Tribes are allowed to be State certified to provide CCS.
