COLOMA CENTER is an intensive outpatient mental health treatment program that provides services designed to collaborate with individuals with a serious mental illness (SMI). The program supports individuals who are at risk of or currently involved with the criminal justice system, multiple psychiatric hospitalizations, out of home placement, homelessness or risk of homelessness. Coloma Center is an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program that utilizes a multidisciplinary team consisting of licensed marriage and family therapists, social workers, rehabilitation experts, a family care coordinator, youth advocate, peer support specialist, CADC Specialist, nurse, and psychiatrist.

Services focus on the individual/family, utilize a strength-based approach with intensive forensic interventions within the recovery model philosophy, outreach and engagement services, and include multi-agency collaboration and joint planning. After hours on-call support is also offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The target population consists of Transition Age Youth (TAY), adults age 18 and older, older adults, and hard-to-engage individuals.

The priority target population is comprised of individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness who meet the following criteria:

  1. Has a severe psychiatric impairment as defined in DSM-V and includes schizophrenia, schizoaffective, delusional disorder, psychotic disorder NOS, bipolar I or II, post-traumatic stress disorder, and major depressive disorder

Referrals are received directly through Placer County CSOC or ASOC. In addition, individuals are able to contact the program directly to inquire about services and be assessed for eligibility. Immediate eligibility for services will be determined by the level of priority, level of impairment, and immediacy of needed services.
