They provide services to roughly 6,400 people each year from every age group and all over the six-county region. They also offer 24-hour emergency services at no cost to anyone who needs help. In the last year,  the center responded to over 2,500 mental health emergencies.

Payment Policy

Cost should never be a hindrance to receiving proper care and treatment for mental health and substance abuse issues. Many of their clients are on Medicaid and they offer an income-based sliding fee scale for self-pay clients. The 24-Hour Emergency Services are free of charge to everyone, even those who are not current clients of the Center at the time of the call. They also take most third-party insurance and self-paying clients.
