Community Based Rehabilitation Services
Community Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS) is a program that is offered through the Idaho Medicaid Program that provides an array of rehabilitative services that emphasize resiliency and long term recovery for children with serious emotional disturbances, and adults with serious and persistent mental illness.
