Community Counseling and Mediation’s Treatment Access & Prevention Services (TAPS) program is federally funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA).
Community Counseling & Mediation TAPS program is a case management outreach and prevention program. TAPS is designed to provide outreach, HIV and Hepatitis testing, referrals to treatment and case management services to males who engage in high-risk behaviors and their partners with substance abuse or co-occurring mental health disorders. Our goal is to increase access to medical and prevention services to 300 unduplicated males ages 18 and up who are HIV positive or at risk for HIV/AIDS. In addition, case management services will be provided to 80 such clients annually.
The primary goal of TAPS is to serve individuals who may lack the resources and support they need to be fully functioning and healthy members of society. Our aim is to provide an array of different services to best support our clients to reach physical and psychological health, stability and well- being.
The program provides case management services to support clients who may need assistance with referrals, benefits applications, health checks, outpatient treatment, and culturally sensitive individual, group and family counseling.
