CAP/C CAP/DA and CAP-MR/DD*
Our outpatient therapy services are designed to meet the needs of adults and adolescents who need to help with life changes, problems in relationships, and mental health and substance abuse issues. Professional Family Care Services, Inc. clinicians are licensed and experienced in dealing with a vast variety of issues and concerns.
The Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP/C) provides cost-effective home care for medically fragile children (through age 20) who would otherwise require long-term hospital care or nursing facility care.
The Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults (CAP/DA) is a special Medicaid program under the Community Care Section of the Division of Medical Assistance. The program makes care at home a real possibility for many people who face nursing home placement.
The primary purpose of the North Carolina CAP-MR/DD program is to provide individuals a cost-effective alternative to inpatient care. This is done by providing a wide array of services to support the individual in the community, from employment training to in-home services for someone with a developmental disability.
We operate Mental Health (MH) and Intelectual and Developmental Disabled (I/DD) residential facilities for adults. Each site is licensed by the NC Department of Mental Health and Human Services, Division of Health Service Regulation and is staffed with professionals and para-professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This environment gives our clients the opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of an integrated community living experience while receiving the support they need.
Behavior therapy is focused on helping individuals understand how changing their behavior can lead to changes in how they are feeling. It is concentrated on using the same learning strategies that led to the formation of unwanted behaviors as well as other new behaviors. The behavior itself is the problem, and our goal is to teach clients new behaviors to minimize or eliminate the issue. Since old learning led to the development of a problem, the theory is that new learning can fix it.
