Comprehensive Community Services

Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a recovery-focused, integrated behavioral health program for adults with severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders and children with severe emotional disturbance. CCS is unique for its inclusion of both children and adults and its focus on other physical illness and impact on multiple system use. 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. CCS is a community-based program in which the majority of services are provided in clients’ homes and communities. The program is person-centered and uses client-directed service plans to describe the individualized services that will support the client to achieve their recovery goals. Services are provided by teams of professionals, peer specialists, and natural supports, all coordinated by a CCS service facilitator.

An essential component of CCS is the 

Recovery Advisory Committee (RAC),

a group of committed, passionate consumers, providers, and advocates who come together to share ideas and make important decisions to ensure the success of Milwaukee County’s CCS program.
