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.

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.

Family Treatment Center

Our Family Treatment Center provides 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, preserve or repair family relationships, and enhance their parenting skills, if applicable.

Family-Based Mental Health Services

If your child is dealing with mental health issues, Family Based Mental Health services help your entire family learn skills to help stay happy and healthy together. Family Based treatment involves a team of two therapists coming to the client family’s home and working with different family members. Your child’s and family’s issues are addressed where they occur (in the home), and everyone in the household is involved in the solution.
