In July, we were honored to receive a generous award in the form of a $545K/five year grant on behalf of SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to expand our Adolescent Services in Kings County! With this funding, we will be introducing the Family TREE (Treatment and Recovery Enhancement and Expansion) program!
Family TREE will provide early intervention, case management, outpatient treatment and rehabilitation, and wraparound services for an estimated 450 Kings County youth who are ages 12 to 18 and have a substance use disorder or co-occurring mental health disorder. If needed, additional support will be lent to their families as well, including linkages to substance use disorder treatment and/or Veterans services.
We look forward to the many additional lives that we will be able to impact for the better and would like to thank SAMHSA for joining us once again in Uplifting the Human Spirit!
