CSB Services - Intensive Community Treatment
Intensive community treatment services are available for people with acute, complex needs who require outpatient services provided in their daily environment rather than at a behavioral health services site.
Case Management (ICM) teams work with people who have serious mental illness and/or
co-occurring substance use disorders, many of whom are homeless.
The goal is to engage the individual in services to improve their
quality of life and prevent hospitalization, incarceration and
homelessness. Services include:
- Case management
- Wraparound services (help with housing and other basic needs)
- Mental health supports
- Medication management
- Crisis intervention
Jail Diversion (services for individuals with severe mental illness
whose behavior has involved the police)
- See the Intensive Case Management Team information in Spanish.
- The Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) is similar to the Intensive Case Management Team and provides services 7 days/week.
- The Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) team works with youth who are at risk of out-of-home placement and their families, helping them get needed services so the youth can continue to live at home. If placement outside the community is necessary, the ICC team helps the family develop the supports needed to ensure their child’s safe, successful return home.
- The Project for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) and Hypothermia Services staff provides outreach services to individuals who are homeless and unsheltered.
