Community Treatment Aide

Community Treatment Aide (CTA) services are supportive and psycho-educational interventions provided primarily in the youth’s natural environment. CTA services are expected to improve the youth’s level of functioning within his/or her environment, and to enhance the caregiver’s ability to manage the youth’s symptoms related to their mental health or substance abuse diagnoses. This service is delivered primarily to the parent/caregiver responsible for the youth, by a highly skilled, educated, and trained paraprofessional who is supervised by a clinician. This also provides family and individual therapy to both youth and family.
