Treatment Program Summary: CMHS has reduced residential support and focused on increasing services available to outpatient services and increasing their length of stay in treatment.  Length of stay has been shown to be the
 number one predictor of success in treatment.  CMHS has begun to use the "Living in Balance" curriculum which has increased the evidenced based practices utilized in the treatment programs.  Our goals for the individuals we serve are to obtain and maintain recovery and to become productive citizens.  CMHS views our participants holistically and not only assists them with the tools they need to get and stay clean, but also to work out their issues with the criminal justice system and to learn the skills they need to become employed and fully productive members of the community.  CMHS teaches individuals how to deal with the stresses of living without resorting to anger and violence.  By being a mental health center, CMHS is also able
 to provide services addressing the mental health needs of individuals.  CMHS is becoming a trauma-informed center.  Our belief is that most of the individuals that we serve have been exposed to some sort of trauma and we are learning how to provide services in a way that does not re-traumatize individuals but also teaches ways for individuals to learn to deal with the trauma they have experienced.
