CVS Health awards $200,000 grant to help treat
co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders

Bradley Hospital is deeply grateful to CVS Health, who recently awarded a grant of $200,000 to fund a new outpatient program for adolescents with co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders. Slated to open later this year, the program will offer both an entry-point and step-down level of treatment to help complete our continuum of care for youth challenged by both mental illness and addiction.

Bradley Hospital programs currently addressing the needs of this special patient population include our Intensive Program for Co-Occurring Disorders and The Bradley Center, a sixteen-bed residential program.

With the opioid crisis and substance use in general reaching devastating new heights among Rhode Island’s youth, Bradley’s distinct dual-focus programs are more important than ever before.
