Adult Services

Life can get tough sometimes. But for men and women who are struggling with mental illness, addiction, trauma and stress, life can go from challenging to overwhelming. CHD can help through our varied adult services. We provide a wide array of community-based mental health services and programs to help adults create sober, successful lives. Over the last 40 years we have helped tens of thousands of adults achieve their goals. And we will support you throughout your journey, with compassion, with optimism, and with every expectation that you will succeed in building a life that is meaningful and satisfying—on your terms.

At CHD we recognize that every person is unique, with a different personality, history, and challenges. That’s why we work closely with you to determine what YOUR needs and goals are before we recommend a care plan for you. Your program may include counseling or psychiatric help, group or individual therapy, even job and housing assistance. That’s because CHD believes in a holistic approach to mental health care.

There’s no need to delay your happiness. A new life is possible.  All you need to do is take the first step.

Substance abuse is treatable, and it’s important to get help as soon as possible so you have the best chance of recovery. At CHD, our clinicians are specially trained in treating drug and alcohol addiction. They can help you learn how to get—and stay—clean/sober and begin to put the pieces of your life back together.  Learn more
