Covid-19 Info

We're here for you during the coronavirus pandemic

All of our crisis centers and clinics remain open and operational during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We're committed to providing 24/7 mental health and substance use care for all who need it, when they need it.  Here are some of the ways we are here to help.

  • Mental Health Care: Many people feel anxious, uncertain, or scared during a pandemic.  You might worry about you or your family catching the virus, be stressed about your job or income, or feel lonely due to social distancing.  To help, our crisis centers and clinics are here to provide 24/7 access to mental health services regardless of ability to pay.
  • Substance Use Services: Working on and maintaining recovery can be hard during a pandemic.  Our clinics continue to provide psychiatric services, groups, therapy, and peer support. Those participating in Medication Assisted Treatment will continue to receive uninterrupted access to methadone and buprenorphine. We are still taking new patients.
  • Avoiding the emergency room: People often go to the emergency room when they can't find the mental health or substance use services they need anywhere else.  We have always provided fast and easy access to care so that people can get their needs met in a more specialized and therapeutic setting.  This is even more important now that coronavirus is causing overcrowding in hospitals and ERs.

What we're doing to keep you safe

We are keeping up to date with the rapidly changing guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and other federal agencies, state and local health departments, and local emergency departments.  Some changes you may notice include

  • Coronavirus symptom checks. All patients and visitors entering our facilities are screened for fever, cough, or shortness of breath prior to entering the building.
  • Separate care areas for people who have or may have mild coronavirus disease.
  • Increased promotion of hand washing, cough etiquette, and other ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
  • Increased use of virtual visits, including the ability to participate in groups and individual visits from your home via telehealth and videoconferencing.
  • Reducing the number of people in the clinics by providing take-homes for methadone and buprenorphine, when appropriate and safe.
