The Hospital of Central Connecticut Counseling Center offers intensive outpatient (IOP) mental health and substance abuse programs at 98 Main Street in Southington.
The center offers programs such as medication assisted treatment, group and individual treatment.
Staff includes a nurse practitioner and two licensed clinical social workers. The renovated space includes two group rooms and two individual session offices.
“When Southington did its community health needs assessment a few years ago, mental health and substance abuse were two of the primary areas that were identified,” said Jessica Collins, BSN-BC, LPC, Director of Behavioral Health Services for The Hospital of Central Connecticut and MidState Medical Center.
“We heard from the citizens of Southington that there was a need for services in their community. The center will allow residents to receive comprehensive group and individual outpatient mental health services and substance abuse treatment close to home,” said Pat Rehmer, president of the Hartford HealthCare Behavioral Health Network.
Startup and renovations costs for the center were paid in part through a grant by the Bradley Henry Barnes and Leila Upson Barnes Memorial Trust at Main Street Community Foundation. The building also houses a Hartford HealthCare Headache Center. (For more details, see the Meriden Record-Journal’s story here.)
“Our goal is to modernize healthcare in Southington and improve access to state-of-the-art care for the community, and adding new behavioral health services is part of our ongoing efforts to do just that,” said Gary Havican, president of The Hospital of Central Connecticut and MidState Medical Center. “We are also proud to be an economic driver in town – in addition to our medical office building on Main Street we have recently expanded services in a new multi-million-dollar family health center and urgent care center on Queen Street. We are building the healthcare delivery system of the future – now.”
Hours of the center are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To connect with The Hospital of Central Connecticut Counseling Center, call 860.276.3970 or click here.
