Mental Health Services


AHP promotes the overall mental health and well being of injection drug users (IDUs) through the provision of mental health services targeted to the unique needs of IDUs. A licensed clinical social worker works closely with clients to address the underlying causes of high-risk behavior, such as history of sexual assault, physical or mental abuse and other trauma.  The licensed clinical social worker performs client assessments, facilitates group and individual therapeutic counseling sessions and makes referrals for psychiatric and drug treatment.  Individuals enrolled in this program receive a comprehensive mental health assessment each year and if needed are referred for more intensive psychiatric evaluation, treatment and/or medication.
