At CHCS we treat people like people. CHCS has been helping people in our community achieve meaningful, independent and productive lives for more than 50 years.

With 1 in 5 people in the U.S. currently living with a mental health condition – many of which go untreated, and a national opioid epidemic that continues to claim the lives of so many caught in the throes of addiction, CHCS is shaping the landscape with programs like Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Residential Treatment for new mothers struggling with addiction, and the POWER Program for early intervention of psychosis.

Here at CHCS, real change is about the lives we touch.

It’s about the hope we give and the healing that begins to happen when someone takes that first step toward recovery. Real change takes and army of compassionate, caring people who don’t judge or view the latest attempt as a failure, but as promise toward a brighter day.

The CHCS team helps people find hope, determine their path to wellness, and discover their way to an independent, productive life.

In the event of a mental health crisis, please call the 24-Hour Crisis & Substance Use Helpline at 800-316-9241 or 210-223-SAFE (7233).

At CHCS, our dedicated staff has implemented and expanded treatment options to better serve our uniquely diverse population with integrated care services designed to treat the whole person – mind and body, and programs targeted specifically to high utilizers of emergency departments and inpatient care services.

If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health condition or substance use challenge, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! The Center for Health Care Services can help!
