Mental Health is Health

The County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADM) Board is working in tandem with its provider agencies to ensure continuity of care for our local mental health and addiction system during the COVID-19 crisis. Agencies are prepared and ready to serve those in need.

If you or someone you care about is in need of support, don’t wait! Mental health and addiction treatment are essential healthcare services, especially during this difficult time.

  • Essential services, including 24-hour crisis services/detox at the ADM Crisis Center and Psychiatric Emergency Services, are open and operating to serve those with a mental health or addiction crisis.
  • Residential treatment is open and accepting new patients.
  • Outpatient programs are operating, using telehealth to connect with patients.
  • Medication services, such as MAT (Medication-Assisted Treatment) and other pharmacy programs treating those with mental illness will continue; prescribers will be reaching out to patients to advise of any changes and/or special instructions.
