Outpatient Mental Health for Adults

Outpatient mental health therapy is the least restrictive level of mental health services. At CCC, outpatient therapy is often the entry level of treatment and includes assessment, goal setting, individual and group therapies. Utilizing proven evidence-based therapies, our therapists are trained in a variety of general and specialized services. Some of these include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy. Couples and structural family are also available.
 
Autism and Developmental Disability Services:
CCC provides a continuum of services to young children through adults, both in-home and clinic-based, utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy, the recognized gold-standard in the treatment of autism. Applied behavior analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991). Our clinicians provide functional behavioral assessments, advanced behavior planning and discrete trail training, under the direction of two Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s). Our Behavior Analysts work with family members to assist them with the use of ABA strategies in the home, and to identify meaningful goals and objectives, treatment strategies and activities, and with the important monitoring of progress. 

Often mental health treatment requires psychotropic medication in order to achieve maximum benefit. In most cases, a combination of therapy and medication management is recommended as best practice. Our psychiatrists are available to provide these services as needed. Through our wide continuum of agency programs we can provide the most effective treatment to promote recovery. It is our belief that all individuals can recover and lead healthy and fulfilling lives and become productive members of their own community.

Outpatient Addiction Services

Chemical and process addictions are a rapidly growing concern in our society. Using proven evidence-based therapies, CCC provides outpatient services for addicted individuals who meet criteria for an outpatient treatment setting. Services can range from individual sessions weekly to Intensive Outpatient services three times per week, for several hours depending on the severity of the addiction.
 
Treatment goals are tailored to meet the individual’s needs based on the biopsychosocial assessment in collaboration with the person. Typically, the therapeutic treatments used include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and 12 step facilitation. Treatment is provided in individual, group and family modalities.
 
Additionally, addictions are often accompanied by mental health issues. If needed, referrals to the psychiatrist for psychotropic medication management can be made.
 
Lastly, CCC also has a Suboxone Treatment (counseling only) Program for the treatment of Opioid addiction.

Psychiatric Rehabilitation Programs

This program provides opportunities for persons with mental disorders to develop the necessary skills to promote and maintain integration into the community.
 
Psychiatric Rehabilitation consists of daily sessions and activities during which clients interact with peers and staff. They learn to live independently to become aware of the natural supports and community resources. Through regular structured involvement, individuals can increase their work, social, and symptom management skills better enabling them to maintain community integration and tenure. Using a variety of activities both on and off site, participants move forward with their life. Employment, volunteer work, and independent living are commonly cited goals among the clients.
 
A recent innovative addition to our Psychiatric Rehabilitation Group schedule is the inclusion of a Group Movie Program conducted by Justin Disko, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Specialist. This unique group utilizes copyright secured movies and film clips to facilitate discussions related to the four Functional Domains/Goals of Psychiatric Rehabilitation which include the Living, Learning, Working, and Social environments of the group participants. Through discussions of the characters and their actions and reactions in the movie clips, the group members are able to draw parallels in their own lives and consider various options for their own problem solution in the four domain areas. This distinctive recovery-oriented approach to Psychiatric Rehabilitation has been very well received by our service participants. The Movie Group has been offered twice per week during the usual 8-week schedule of sessions.
 
Life enrichment and social opportunities are important aspects of the program. Psychiatric Rehabilitation strives to provide a supportive environment in which persons can learn and grow.
 
Recreational and socialization opportunities are available during evenings and weekends. Consumers come together in a safe haven at the consumer operated Drop-In Center, "Our Friends Place".

Peer Support Services

Peer Support Services are unique in that they are provided by persons who have identified themselves as living with a mental illness. This means the service participant and the provider are working together as equals. Peer providers are “certified” and trained in important topics such as active listening and confidentiality. Services take place at a time (including evenings and weekends) and place (home, coffee shop, park, Drop-in Center, etc.) convenient for the service participant. Peer Support Services focus on positive goals chosen voluntarily by the service participant. People who have worked with our Certified Peer Specialists have chosen the following as some of their goals: 
  • Wellness – being as healthy as I can
  • Self-advocacy – having a voice in my treatment
  • Making friends I can count on
  • Getting and keeping a job I want
  • Self-esteem – liking myself
  • Knowing what services, groups, and activities can help me
