Comprehensive Risk Counseling and Services (CRCS)

CDC's Important Update on CRCS

Comprehensive Risk Counseling Services (CRCS) is a client-centered HIV prevention activity that was originally conceived as a combination of HIV risk reduction counseling and case management focusing primarily on substance abuse treatment, housing stabilization, and mental health services for persons at high risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV. CDC no longer provides face-to-face training for CRCS, but for a limited time these implementation materials will remain available online to support programs that are still offering CRCS services. Agencies that wish to provide a different approach to HIV risk reduction counseling and case management for persons at high risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV may consider CLEAR, ARTAS, or HIV Navigation Services, which are supported by CDC.
