Integrated Behavioral Health/Recovery Services

At Caring Health Center, we believe that each individual has unique medical, behavioral health and recovery needs

and deserves the most effective treatment we can provide. We believe that providing empathetic, comprehensive,

integrated and confidential care in a respectful, non-judgmental environment allows each person served to choose

their healing journey and progress at their own pace. We accomplish this through trauma-informed, strengths-based interventions for all individuals seeking healing and emotional support in recreating their lives.

CHC’s Integrated Behavioral Health/Recovery Services include bilingual, bi-cultural clinicians dedicated to providing immediate brief crisis assessment and stabilization interventions for walk-in clients as well as ongoing individual

and group therapies appropriate for each client’s needs. Community Support Workers provide case management for individuals needing assistance with accessing community resources.

Walk-ins seen if possible by a Licensed Clinician or Community Support Worker.
