Services are provided using a wraparound model that is community-based, flexible, consumer directed, strength and outcome based and will help the person achieve their personal vision of recovery. The focus of CCS programs is to assist consumers in efforts to maximize their independence.

Application & Referral Process

Everyone who is referred to CCS needs to complete an application. The application will be reviewed and a meeting will be scheduled with the applicant. During the meeting, a Mental Health/Substance Abuse Functional Screen will be completed and the applicant will find out if they are eligible for CCS.

An admission agreement to CCS needs to be signed and then planning can begin for the development of the Recovery Team. Within the first 30 days, the participant and the team meet to discuss strengths, needs and recovery goals. The consumer decides what services will meet their needs. These might include: residential programs, community living skill groups, work programs, peer support, medication monitoring and counseling. The consumer and Recovery Team are not limited by these services and should look at all community supports which can meet needs.

Program Staff

CCS program staff work with the consumer and their recovery team to develop the recovery plan, assist with setting up and monitoring services and to provide service facilitation. Our staff includes:

  • CCS Program Manager
  • CCS Service Facilitators
  • CCS RN Service Facilitators

Assistance is provided to identify and access other professionals that can help in the journey toward recovery. These professionals may include: psychiatrist or other medical practitioner, therapist, AODA counselor and others.
