Outpatient Addictions

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the lives of Allegany County citizens by providing mental health and addiction treatment programs that are personalized, accessible, efficient, and effective.


The Allegany County Health Department Behavioral Health Services provide treatment and prevention services to individuals and families experiencing difficulties with chemical dependence/abuse and mental health issues.

Addiction is viewed as a progressive disease, characterized by a pathological pattern of chemical use, physiological involvement, and related physical, behavioral, social, and emotional difficulties. We believe that addiction negatively affects all persons who are significantly involved with the individual, and that significant others often respond in a manner that supports continued chemical use; therefore, we encourage involvement of significant others in treatment. Staff views abstinence from substance use as the primary goal of treatment.

Mental health issues are defined as those diagnoses contained in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. We believe that each patient faces distinct struggles and possesses individual strengths and capabilities. Therefore, services are based upon an individual treatment plan developed with the provider and patient.

We believe that each patient and family possesses a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses; therefore, the most effective treatment approach is individualized, and based on comprehensive assessment.

We believe that communication with community agencies is essential to comprehensive care and recovery. We see ourselves as integral parts in a continuum of care designed to help individuals and their families.

We believe our patients possess the ability to make positive choices for themselves. Our services are based on respect for the individual's personal dignity. We are committed to a continuous and comprehensive assessment and improvement of our services.
