Transcript of 2008 CHC Annual Report

Outpatient Services Financials/Stats Medical
Services Outreach Housing Our Future CHC Foundation Boards Mission Statement of Purpose Mission Statement The Community Health Center is a private, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. Our purpose is to provide a comprehensive array of treatment, prevention and housing services for addictive and compulsive behaviors and disorders. We have been serving Northeast Ohio since 1974. The Community Health Center is committed to enhancing the quality of life. We are a leader in providing effective services for compulsive and addictive disorders, health care, life skills development, prevention, housing, wellness and rehabilitation. Letter to the Community Many changes are happening not only in the field of alcohol and drug treatment, but also throughout our entire health care system. The truth is, the lines are blurred between primary and behavioral health care; one often cannot be addressed without the other. There is no one treatment regimen that cures substance abuse, just as there is no one miracle drug that cures all ailments. In this annual report, you will see how we address the many unique needs of our patients every day.

We believe Community Health Center is the leading provider of substance abuse treatment in Summit County. We also acknowledge to be the leader and on the cutting edge, we must support if not provide many paths to effective recovery for our patients. That is why we offer more than just residential and outpatient treatment. We work to provide many wrap-around services which include primary health care, housing, temporary employment services and child care.

We believe that we have a responsibility to help any and all populations in need that are susceptible to the affects of addiction. That is why we offer programs like the Community Clubhouse for Brain Injury and housing programs for people with disabilities.

And finally, because we believe “Addiction Doesn’t Discriminate,” we must keep this important topic on the minds of our citizens and leaders in this community. Thank you for your continued support of CHC over the past four decades, and I look forward to sharing with you many more milestones, stories and successes of the good work Community Health Center is doing in Northeast Ohio.

In good health,

Theodore P. Ziegler
Chief Executive Officer, CHC We recognize that there is no single treatment modality that is appropriate for all patients. Treatment begins with an in-depth assessment where the chemical dependency problems are identified as well as other areas of concern including, criminal involvement, family issues, education/vocation deficiencies and mental health. A treatment plan is designed with all the needs of the patient in mind. Our treatment staff assist our patients through the recovery process, which can last as little as 90 days to several years. In 2008, CHC added mental health services to those substance abuse patients in need of treatment for a mental health or behavioral issue. We also offer a Stress Management Group and case management services.


Diagnostic Department—The first step in treatment for new patients at CHC. Using various assessment tools, an individual’s mental and physical health is measured.

Patients admitted: 2,067
Average length of an assessment: three hours

Patients seen: 301 Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opiate Addiction—One of only nine regional methadone clinics in Ohio offering daily methadone maintenance and detoxification treatment (identified as the single most effective treatment) for opiate addiction.

Intensive Outpatient Program—Provides a therapeutic multi-disciplinary program
designed to promote the recovery process through three levels of treatment including group and individual counseling, case management, vocational development, community support groups and reintegration programming.

Adult Counseling—Includes weekly individual counseling and referrals to a wide array of chemical dependency and specialty groups providing education, peer support and accountability. Vocational, medical and housing assistance services may also be provided to aid in recovery.

Patients seen in our adult behavioral health
programs: 5,769 Adolescent Counseling—Designed to address the specific needs of younger patents.

Adolescents receive comprehensive assessments that help gauge other physiological issues with the patient. This helps gauge other physiological issues with the patient.
2008 Stats

Women’s Recovery Program—Strives to remove barriers for women who are struggling with an alcohol or chemical dependency addiction.

Focus includes treatment for addicted pregnant women and post partum mothers.
2008 Stats
Patients seen: 441
Number of drug-free babies born: 43
Average length of stay in program: 2 years

Community Clubhouse for Brain Injury—New in 2008, the Community Clubhouse for Brain Injury (formerly the Ballinger TBI Clubhouse) is a community based program offering long-term support for individuals with brain injuries. The Clubhouse focuses on re-entry activities and a work-ordered day for members including cooking, gardening, office work and other pre-vocational training. All Clubhouse members can also utilize CHC services for substance abuse/mental health issues and case management.
Operated at CHC’s Summit Terrace, the Clubhouse serves about 25 individuals per week.

http://www.commclubhouse.org. Battling an addiction is very difficult, but nearly impossible if you are also struggling with a chronic health condition. At the Community Health Center we strive to treat the entire patient, and that includes their primary health care needs as well as their families. Community Health Center Family Practice—All patients have access to primary health care services
at our Family Practice.
Additionally, the practice offers a Suboxone treatment program. This is an opiate replacement therapy program for patients addicted to prescription pain killers. Patients are referred by their general practitioner or can seek help personally. Suboxone therapy lasts about four months and is medically monitored by our doctor with weekly visits and urine drug screening. In 2008, 75 patients participated in the Suboxone Program.

EAP & Drug Free Workplace Program—Our Employee Assistance Program focuses on helping companies develop policies and procedures to decrease workplace accidents and workers’ compensation claims.
We provide DOT physicals, on-demand drug testing, on-site trainings and annual flu shot clinics. In 2008, our EAP program served 256 companies.

Laboratory Services—Thousands of patients that come in our doors every year, come for one reason only — for a drug test. CHC holds contracts with many local service providers and companies for urine drug screen (UDS) services. CHC provides state-of-the-art services at our main location to provide comprehensive screening as well as other medical laboratory tests.
In 2008 our laboratory services administered
42,396 tests. The outreach programs at the Community Health Center are designed for two reasons — to prevent problems, such as drug abuse, before they start or to provide after care once recovery has been obtained. Both functions of our outreach programs serve as a safety net in the community. These programs all have a strong education component whether for teaching teens how to say no to drugs or by showing recovering adults how to utilize the programs available to them in the community.

Case Management Services—Often times, our case managers are the glue that holds our patients’ treatment plan together. Case managers help patients navigate the services available to them in the community, provide transportation and overall support as they are in the healing process.
2008 Stats
Average case load for a CHC Case Manager: 34
Number served: 2,636

Help Me Grow—Free home-visitation program that supports families of children from birth to age three. The goal is to strengthen the child’s development and give them the best chance possible to achieve success by assisting with positive parenting skills and access to the community network of services.
2008 Stats
Children served: 300

Project PANDA—The goal of PANDA (Prevent and Neutralize Drugs and Alcohol) is to educate middle school students, not only about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, but also about peer pressure, decision making and self-esteem. This goal is accomplished during a Friday through Sunday educational camp experience.
2008 Stats
Students participating: 916 children participated in PANDA
and other prevention programs in 25
area schools
Student-run web site: http://www.projectpanda.org Transitional Housing
Transitional housing is designed to help bridge the gap between recovery and reintegration into an independent lifestyle. Residents are required to have a documented period of sobriety and be working on a treatment plan. Case management and wrap around services through the Community Health Center are provided to all residents. Length of stay in transitional housing is anywhere between three months and two years.
