Comprehensive Community Services

What is the Comprehensive Community Services Program?

The Comprehensive Community Services Program (CCS) is a voluntary program available to all residents of Forest, Oneida and Vilas counties. CCS is a psychosocial rehabilitation program for all ages, serving individuals with substance abuse, mental health, or co-occurring diagnoses.

Some of the more common mental health diagnoses treated include, but are not limited to, Anxiety, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder and Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

CCS works with individuals and their team to decide which programs and support will help the individual reach their recovery goals and their highest potential while living in their community. No two treatment plans look the same because they are tailored to each client, to address every aspect of the individual’s life touched or affected by their mental health or substance use diagnosis
