CLICK HERE FOR THE CATCH CIRC PROGRAM COVID-19 GUIDELINES

We operate three Community Integrated Recovery Centers (CIRCs). Using clinical protocols and activities that promote the concepts of personal strengths and resiliency, these programs combine outpatient psychiatric services with community-oriented psychiatric rehabilitation services.

Members work on skills which will help them achieve a variety of goals ranging from psychiatric symptom reduction to independent living and vocational/educational placement. Our dedicated staff uses a blend of best practices, recovery models, and a person-centered approach that builds coping and socialization proficiency. Services are provided on-site and in a community-based setting. We also offer psychiatric resources in the form of psychiatric evaluations, medication consultation, and medication management.
