A Diagnostic/Assessment is an intensive clinical and functional face to face evaluation of a recipient's mental health, developmental disability, or substance abuse condition that results in the issuance of a Diagnostic/Assessment report with a recommendation regarding whether the recipient meets target population criteria, and includes an order for Enhanced Benefit services that provides the basis for the development of an initial Person Centered Plan. For substance abuse-focused Diagnostic/Assessment, the designated Diagnostic Tool specified by DMH (e.g., SUDDS IV, ASI, SASSI) for specific substance abuse target populations (i.e., Work First, DWI, etc.) must be used. In addition, any elements included in this service definition that are not covered by the tool must be completed.
Outpatient Therapy is designed to meet the clinically significant behavioral or psychological symptoms or patterns that have been identified as treatment needs for a recipient.
It is provided through scheduled therapeutic treatment sessions and may be provided to individuals, families, or groups in various settings.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT TEAM
The Outpatient Program is designed to give clients the opportunity to regain control of their lives and the stressors they face. This will be achieved through skill building groups that focus on problem solving, communication, recovery philosophy, personal responsibility, anger management, budgeting, resources, leisure education, brain chemistry, medication education, diagnosis discussion, time management, self respect, etc. Most outpatient clients will come in facing difficulties in similar areas. These include but are not limited to medical (decompensate, medication issues), financial (housing, utilities), employment (job loss, job need), relationship (ending, abusive, isolation), and trauma (suicide, abuse).

This is an intensive community rehabilitation service that provides treatment and restorative interventions to: assist individuals to gain access to necessary services; reduce psychiatric and addiction symptoms; and develop optimal community living skills. Services offered by the CST shall be documented in a Person Centered Plan and must include: assistance and support for the individuals in crisis situations; service coordination; psycho-education and support for individuals and their families; individual restorative interventions for the development of interpersonal, community coping and independent living skills; development of symptom monitoring and management skills; monitoring medication; and self medication.

Through supports based on the individual's needs, consumers will reside in independent or semi-independent living arrangements, and be engaged in the recovery process.
Day Treatment includes a structured treatment service program that builds on the strengths and addresses the identified functional problems associated with the complex conditions of each individual child or adolescent and family.

The service is delivered primarily to children in their family's home. Identified children are those whose behavioral challenges have caused difficulty in the home, school, or community. This intervention uses a clinical team approach designed to address the identified mental health needs of children/adolescents and their families. The team consists of three clinicians serving up to eight families. Therapeutic work centers on enhancing parental authority and effectiveness, strengthening family communication, and engaging the child in individual and family therapy.
