Community Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS) is a program in which participants learn specific skills that foster rehabilitation and recovery. Participants work one-on-one with a CBRS worker both in their homes and in the community to enhance skills needed to reduce the impact their mental illness has on their life.
Our treatment plans are guided by the participant’s goals. Not only do we believe that everyone has the right to lead a successful, fulfilling life, we believe that everyone has the right to self-determination and to choose what outcomes they want from services.
A CBRS worker may work with a participant on assertive communication skills, budgeting skills, problem-solving skills, healthy coping skills as well as many other skills necessary to lead a full life. A recipient generally meets with their CBRS worker on a weekly basis. Plans can be amended to meet more or less frequently based on the individual needs of the recipient.
