Spectrum Health is proud to be a

Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC)

The Excellence in Mental Health and Addiction Act is a two-year, eight-state initiative to expand Americans’ access to community-based addiction and mental health care through Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCHBCs).

CCBHCs are transforming our treatment system from a patchwork of underfunded, overburdened organizations to a thriving array of organizations that meet core standards for comprehensive, high-quality treatment. They are strengthening states’ response to the opioid crisis. In addition to comprehensive addiction treatment services, more than 80 percent of CCBHCs report launching or expanding medication-assisted treatment (MAT) since becoming CCBHCs in mid-2017.

Spectrum Health offers

The highest level of treatment and care.

Clinicians are trained in cutting edge practices to help all individuals attain their mental health and addiction treatment goals. We hire hundreds of new clinicians trained in integrated behavioral health treatments. Eleven more states are poised and ready to participate. Despite widespread interest, states that planned to implement CCBHCs have been shut out of the program due to the eight-state limit. Every state that wishes to create and sustain quality service systems would be able to do so.
