COMHAR Receives Grant to Support Expanded Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment Services
Federal grant money awarded to COMHAR enabling them to adopt the innovative Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded a grant to COMHAR this past month, allowing us to implement the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC)model for care delivery.
With this new funding COMHAR now has the chance to expand services to serve as a “one-stop-shop” for mental health, substance use treatment and other health care services in their communities. The CCBHC model ensures access to 24/7/365 crisis care, care coordination with hospitals, law enforcement and schools and access to high- quality services, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help stop the overdose crisis, among other capabilities.

“We are thrilled that COMHAR has received this CCBHC grant. As we navigate through the pandemic, our goal is to ‘Restore the Core…and More’. This SAMHSA grant will allow us to serve an additional 500 individuals per month.”
