Patricia Andriole leads the Branford Counseling Center, which is a licensed psychiatric outpatient and…More substance abuse facility for adults and children.
The organization strives to offer mental health counseling, substance abuse assistance and crisis management for any town residents in need.
The organization accepts private, Medicare and Medicaid insurance and states: "No resident will ever be refused treatment because of an inability to pay."
The center also works in collaboration with other local agencies, schools, hospitals, private practitioners, Branford-based Harbor Health Services Inc. and various town departments to help meet every client's needs.
The Branford Counseling Center also provides the Youth Service Bureau for the town of Branford and social services handling basic needs.
Funded through a grant provided by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health, the Branford Counseling Center is also home to the Branford Collation to Prevent Under Age Drinking. This committee meets the second Thursday of the month at 4pm in the Community Room of the Branford Police Department; all are invited to attend.
