Mental Health & Substance Abuse

Pathways to Independence

Clients are referred by Allegheny County Human Services Rapid Response Team; families cannot register a child for this service directly.

Pathways to Independence provides a safe and therapeutic environment for children and youth with mental-health issues or identified special needs to live and receive specialized care. Pathways is specially tailored to children and youth who simply can’t stay at home with family because of issues stemming from their mental health diagnosis, health issues or other similar challenges.

Outpatient Mental Health - School Partnership

Our School Partnership only serves students enrolled in the schools that Familylinks partners with. If your child may benefit from counseling, please consider our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic.

Mental health is far from an adults-only matter. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, half of all mental health disorders show their first signs before the person affected turns 14.

STEP

While some children with mental health issues respond well to outpatient treatment, for others, it’s important for a therapist to be available more often, and in more places. Short Term Enhanced Programming (STEP) provides extra mobile assistance to children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbances. In the home, in school, and in the community, STEP gives your child the support they need to improve their ability to cope and grow, regardless of the time or circumstance.

Recovery Support Center

Our Recovery Support Center provides outpatient services that help those struggling with dependency to become strong and substance-free. We treat the client’s addiction alongside any co-occurring mental disorders, through outpatient or intensive outpatient therapy (anywhere from one to five days a week).

Who is eligible?

Men, women and adolescents who are addicted to alcohol or other drugs, including heroin.

Outpatient Mental Health - Clinic

If you live with a mental health condition, you’re not alone. One in five Americans will experience some mental health issue in their life. And there’s no age limit: Children, adults and older adults can all find their lives changed by this common problem.

While mental health issues can rob you of your hope, it’s important to know that with treatment, life can be bearable again.

Mobile Mental Health Treatment

If you’re an older adult dealing with mental health issues, you might also have trouble getting to a therapist or counselor, because of transportation issues or because your health limits your mobility. That’s where Mobile Mental Health Treatment (MMHT) helps.

Your MMHT therapist travels to your home to work with you when you’re unable to leave the house. For clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, hoarding or other disorders that make it difficult to go out and seek treatment, MMHT helps by making therapy accessible.

Family Treatment Centers

We operate two Family Treatment Centers, which provide long-term (up to six months) residential treatment for women age 18 or older who are committed to working on their recovery from addiction. We help women develop recovery skills, improve their well-being, enhance their parenting skills, and preserve or repair family relationships.
