Community Psychiatric Centers provides multi-disciplinary, wraparound IBHS mental health services in Allegheny, Westmoreland, Washington, Fayette, Greene, Armstrong, and Indiana counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania. IBHS wraparound evaluations are also available in our Blairsville office.
CPC provides wraparound intervention in the home, school, or other community setting, and we work with patients on Medical Assistance and most other insurances.
Following your child’s initial assessment, we hold an interagency team meeting with parents, guardians and managed care insurance company representatives to determine if services are medically necessary. If wraparound treatment is authorized, parents need to apply for an ACCESS card through the state’s Medical Assistance program.

Medication Management is provided by referral to Robert A. Lowenstein, M.D. and other community physicians. Prior to the prescription of medications, children and adolescents receive a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and diagnosis of their mental health condition. Ongoing assessments of the child’s progress, side effects, and need for modification of medication regimens occur on a regular basis.
Conditions treated with medication include Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, oppositional disorders, anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorders. The goal of medication management is to provide the most effective medication at the lowest dosage to avoid side effects.
Families are involved in the decision making process regarding medications, and participate in medication visits.
Doctors Robert A. Lowenstein, M.D. and John E. Carosso, Psy.D. are prepared to conduct psychiatric and psychological evaluations by referral for children and adolescents who may have virtually any emotional or behavioral symptom, including signs of autism spectrum disorders, oppositional disorders, depression, anxiety, attention-deficit and over activity, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, post traumatic disorder, reactive attachment disorder, developmental delays, psychosis, and intellectual disability delays.
We also conduct assessments and evaluations of children and adolescents experiencing the stress of parental separation and divorce, and for the purpose of court-ordered child custody issues. Comprehensive reports are provided.
