Community Integrated Outpatient Services

CIOS is a step-down program from our Community Support Programs

Our Community Integrated Outpatient Services (CIOS) programs, which are also known as Richmond Outpatient and Pittsburg Outpatient, provide a comprehensive range of psychotherapy and case management services to adults with serious, chronic mental disabilities. These programs are funded by Medi-Cal through Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS), Behavioral Health Division.  

These programs functions as a step-down in the level of intensive community outreach services received by clients through the Hume Center’s Community Support Programs in East and West County.

Services occur in appropriate county locations including the home, the community, and in our clinics.  The Hume Center employs a client-centered approach to individualized services to help those with chronic mental health disabilities increase their sense of wellbeing and gain greater independence within their communities.

The vision of CIOS is to provide and embed stabilization and wellness tools that will assist the diverse adult population of chronic severe mental health disability clients live meaningful, community integrated, balanced lives.

In Pittsburg, CIOS also serves clients that utilize Medicare-only Insurance. For these clients or those with Medi/Medi insurance that do not qualify for Medi-Cal behavioral health services due to their level of impairment, psychotherapy and psychiatry are only offered in the clinic and no case management services may be offered due to the regulations of this insurance type. Other restrictions may apply.
