Our Services

Our CCBHC offers a wide range of services that promote recovery from mental health, addictions, and chronic health conditions; these services include immediate screening, diagnosis, and integrated treatment. Supports are offered to individuals and families across the lifespan and regardless of income, including those who have serious mental illness or long-term chronic addictions, are at-risk members of the armed services or veterans, and/or are members of underserved communities.

Benefits of CCBHC are:

  • Easy access to services for all residents regardless of ability to pay
  • Whole-person, integrated care
  • Specialized 24/7/365 services to stabilize people experiencing crisis



CCBHC services are equally available to people who are insured, uninsured, or on Medicaid.


CCBHC began in 2017 as a 2-year pilot program authorized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and overseen by New York State Office of Mental Health. It has since become an ongoing demonstration program based on the model’s strong results.
