Child Welfare Services
Columbia County started a dependency drug court program to address the needs of the client and the family. This program offers wrap around services in day treatment and outpatient services. Dependency drug court is a five phase treatment program to provide support, mentoring, treatment parenting education, budgeting, employment search, housing and collaboration for all that participate. Along with this CCMH is a strong advocate for clients and their family’s needs that enter into the system or are self-references.
We also have an employee that is part of the Addiction Recovery Team at DHS who does screenings, works with caseworkers, addresses barriers, and facilitates that the clients engage in the correct level of care. All services help to reunify families and build health family systems.
