In Benilde Hall's Own Words
Benilde Hall's goal is to expand the Substance Abuse Treatment (SAT) program to provide 450 -- an increase from 350 -- adult males who are experiencing homelessness and chemical dependency with the services and tools they need to live healthy, sober lifestyles and to secure stable employment, income and permanent housing. so they can be productive, contributing Jackson County community members.
SAT is an evidence-based, all-encompassing program that provides intensive outpatient services along with mental health treatment and supportive residential housing to treat substance use disorder among males experiencing homelessness and chemical dependency. COMBAT funds will support salaries and benefits of highly qualified, experienced and trained staff, many of whom are former Benilde Hall graduates and Certified Peer Specialists, along with direct program costs (insurance and drug testing). This program fulfills our mission to provide services to treat substance use disorder, mental health, and homelessness so individuals may return to the community as responsible, employed, and permanently housed members of society.
For 27 years, Benilde Hall has been serving adult males ages 18 and older who are experiencing homelessness and substance use disorder throughout Jackson County. Substance use disorder, mental health disorders and homelessness often go hand-in-hand. Two-thirds of people experiencing chronic homelessness have a substance use disorder and roughly 30% have a serious mental illness. Local data shows substance use is a growing problem in Jackson County, with rising emergency room rates due to substance use disorder, alcohol-involved driving deaths, drug poisoning deaths, and opioid dependence.
These are the agencies that have COMBAT-funded Intensive Outpatient Treatment programs.
