Benilde Hall is expanding and enhancing its comprehensive, trauma-informed, evidence-based Substance Abuse Treatment (SAT) program. SAT provides residential housing and substance use disorder and mental health treatment for homeless adult males (ages 18 and up) experiencing chemical dependency. COMBAT funds support three key areas of our program: 1) salaries and benefits of qualified, trained, and experienced staff, who will deliver counseling, case management, group education, and other support services directly to clients; 2) direct program costs, including drug testing and housing supplies; 3) staff training and certification costs around evidence-based practices; and 4) bed nights for clients staying beyond the funded 45-day period.
Comprehensive Mental Health Services SUD Treatment
CMHS's Substance Use Services program provides low-income individuals in Eastern Jackson County who are struggling with substance use disorders with access to quality residential and day treatment services. COMBAT funding supports program activities, including Level II residential inpatient treatment and Level II partial hospitalization treatment. The goal of the program is to improve each client's overall wellbeing and social determinants of health, so they can ultimately achieve recovery.
ReDiscover's substance use disorder (SUD) programming offers a range of behavioral health services, from urgent care and outpatient programs to residential treatment programs and recovery houses throughout Jackson County—but with particular focus on Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, southern Kansas City, Raytown and Grandview. Jackson County residents struggling with SUD experience a variety of challenges and need both early intervention and ongoing treatment to reach and maintain a sufficient level of recovery. Many residents with SUDs do not have adequate health coverage, are unemployed, and do not have support systems in place.
