Court Coordinated Services (CCS)
For people with chronic mental illness or a developmental disability
Court Coordinated Services (CCS) is a mental health court with a treatment-focused program of court supervision for adults facing criminal charges in Yamhill County. The goal is to help the individual achieve lasting stability so that they are less likely to re-offend. In CCS the participant will follow a treatment plan that may include medication monitoring, substance abuse monitoring, individual and group therapy, skill training, case management and community integration.
Eligibility for the program is determined by the CCS Team. The person must have a diagnosis of Schizophrenia, Bipolar I or II, a chronic paranoid disorder, a chronic psychotic disorder not caused by substance abuse, or a developmental disability. Other diagnoses may be considered on a case-by-case basis. There must be a strong link between the person’s illness/disability and their current criminal charges. Criminal history and dangerousness will also be taken into consideration. Applicants must be Yamhill County residents and able and willing to engage in services.
