With a long history of hope and healing, The Grove Counseling Center has flourished into a Central Florida nonprofit built from the community’s need for services. A focus on those living with a mental and suffering from substance abuse allows The Grove to enhance the ability of many individuals and families to succeed in life. Those we serve come across many hurdles and the top priority for any human service organization is to make the necessary treatment available for all those who seek it as every individual is a priority.
According to the Needs Assessment conducted by Central Florida Cares Health System, prevention and treatment for behavioral health issues and substance abuse disorders is a great need here in Central Florida.
Barriers to accessing care for mental health and substance abuse were ranked:
- Limited funding and capacity for needed treatment services
- Availability of needed treatment services in our area
- Cost of mental health and substance abuse treatment
- Limited housing options
- Lack of child care
- Lack of knowledge of available resources
The Grove Counseling Center combats these issues through many community partnerships, establishing services at other human service organizations, being in network with many insurance providers and providing funding for those who qualify, and by informing the community of our resources as prevention and treatment are our focus.
