Body

DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Agreement for Services 348-S1611 with California Psychiatric Transitions, Inc. (CPT) for the provision of long-term residential treatment for mentally ill adults as HHSA needs to provide and maintain capacity for residential treatment services at the higher level of acuity available through CPT.

 

Additionally, HHSA has determined that services provided pursuant to this Agreement 348-S1611 satisfy the criteria defined in Chapter 3.13, Section 3.13.030 (H) of the County Ordinance in that the Contractor provides facilities and professional services that may not be feasibly provided by the County.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

CPT is a 24/7 mental health rehabilitation center (MHRC) located in San Joaquin County that has been providing long-term residential psychiatric treatment for County adults since April 1, 2011.  CPT provides treatment services for multiple acuity levels and provides an alternative to State hospital placements for individuals who meet the eligibility criteria established by CPT.  CPT also operates a facility that addresses the needs and concerns for individuals who have been court-ordered to a diversion program or have committed felonies/misdemeanors and are currently unable to stand trial (i.e. incompetent to stand trial as per Penal Code).  The focus of CPT is to address and correct disruptive behavior(s), minimize their occurrences, and continue a client's treatment once ownership of their behavior has been achieved.   Services are provided on an “as requested” basis.

 

ALTERNATIVES

Disapproval of Agreement for Services 348-S1611 will result in the inability of HHSA to comply with court orders, diminish the ability for HHSA to meet the service demands of the community, and disrupt the service plans of clients who may already be receiving residential services from this vendor.
