NorthCare is one of first three centers in Oklahoma designated as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC). Only eight states in the nation were selected to participated in the national initiative to improve and expand access to mental health and substance abuse services. The development of CCBHCs in 2017 marked the start of a transformation for community mental health centers that revolutionizes care for the most vulnerable in our community.
As one of the first Certified Community Behavioral Health Agencies in the United States, NorthCare is committed to treating the whole person, addressing mental health, physical health, and substance use. We provide nine types of services with an emphasis on the provision of both substance use and mental health care, 24-hour crisis care, evidence-based practices, and care coordination. We believe truly transformational change only comes from integrated approach that focuses on treating both the mind and the body.
