United Services is the most comprehensive private, non-profit center in Connecticut providing psychosocial, mental health, chemical abuse, education and prevention services to the community, and employee assistance program services for business and industry. Our primary service area is the 21 towns in Northeast Connecticut. Client services are available in 12 locations, including four main offices located in Columbia, Dayville, Wauregan and Windham.
United Services employs a staff of over 250 professionals and paraprofessionals. Our staff includes psychiatrists, clinicians, social workers, psychologists, prevention specialists, case managers, advocates, and administrative support personnel. The Center operates over thirty separate programs under one administration. This allows us to maximize resources and minimize overhead costs.
United Services works closely with many area towns and agencies, including municipal agencies, schools, local social service programs, and other agencies to coordinate services, reduce duplication between agencies, and to provide cost effective services to our community. United Services is the only comprehensive mental health provider in our area which serves the Latino community. United Services also runs the only domestic violence shelter for women and their children in the region.
We are a member agency of Advanced Behavioral Health, or ABH, a statewide mental health and substance abuse provider network, and is a proud member of several state and national organizations including The Connecticut Community Providers Association, Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies, The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, and is Connecticut’s only representative of the Mental Health Corporations of America.
