SMA Healthcare has been awarded a two year $4 Million grant by SMAHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to establish a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) in Daytona Beach.

CCBHCs are facilities specifically designed to provide a community with an all-inclusive range of substance use and mental health disorder services, especially for individuals who have the most complex needs. CCBHCs are responsible for directly providing (or contracting with partner organizations to provide) nine types of services, with an emphasis on the provision of 24-hour crisis care, utilization of evidence-based practices, care coordination and integration with physical health care. 

CCBHCs provide a comprehensive collection of services needed to create access, stabilize people in crisis and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma- informed care and physical-behavioral health integration. Comprehensive care includes, but is not limited to, the following criteria:

• 24/7/365 crisis services to help people stabilize in the most clinically appropriate, least restrictive, least traumatizing and most cost-effective settings.

• Immediate screening and risk assessment for mental health, addictions and basic primary care needs for those with behavioral health disorders.

• Easy access to care with criteria to assure a reduced wait time so those who need services can receive them when they need them, regardless of ability to pay or location of residence.

• Tailored care for active duty military and veterans to ensure they receive the unique health support essential to their treatment.

SMA Healthcare’s Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic will increase access to and improve the quality of community mental health and substance use disorder treatment to over 1,100 individuals over the two year period of the grant.
