Our History

Spectrum Health is recognized as one of the most effective behavioral healthcare providers in Western New York.


As an agency, Spectrum Health has helped thousands of people in their recovery process from mental illness and/or addiction for more than 45 years.

Spectrum Health and Human Services is a Certified Community Behavioral Health Center (CCBHC) providing mental health, addiction, and crisis services. This includes treatment and rehabilitation of psychiatric disabilities, psychological problems, substance-related disorders; as well as mental health programs for adults, adolescents, children and families who are experiencing a significant disturbance in functioning, emotional state, or pattern of behavior are readily available in many different communities.

Chemical Addiction Programs

In addition, chemical addiction programs for adults and adolescents whose chemical use is having a negative impact upon their health, relationships, or functioning and for individuals who are concerned about a family member or friend’s use of alcohol or drugs are also available.


Spectrum Health values the trust and confidence the community has placed in it. Information regarding a client’s treatment is kept confidential in accordance with prevailing law and policy and the company’s own Code of Ethics.

Each year thousands of people turn to Spectrum Health, which enabled them to build resiliency skills and increase their ability to successfully cope with life’s challenges.

As these children and adults courageously develop strategies for recovery, their need for public support, medical care, special education, and legal aid is decreased, resulting in personal satisfaction, stronger families, and a more hopeful, empowered community.

Spectrum Health is funded by the Erie County Department of Mental Health (ECDMH), Wyoming County Mental Health Department, New York State Office of Mental Health (NYSOMH), and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (NYSOASAS), and is recognized by all as one of the outstanding Human Service agencies in Western New York.

Spectrum Health provides the highest quality services possible to a diverse clientele. Our clients express their satisfaction and gratitude for the new skills, understanding, and sense of empowerment they have gained, enabling them to manage their lives more effectively.
