Centerstone Announces Project CARE

Bloomington, Ind.—Centerstone announces the beginning of “Project CARE,” a three-year, $1.2 million program providing individualized care, access to treatment, and community support services in six southern Indiana counties (Bartholomew, Crawford, Harrison, Monroe, Orange, and Washington) to men and women leaving the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC).

Project CARE instigates pre- and post-release planning that supports mental health and substance abuse treatment, as well as social support, for a full year after release from IDOC. Potential participants can be identified as they are sentenced or a few weeks before their release. Strengths and needs of each individual are accessed, and a wrap-around treatment plan devised that includes mental health and substance abuse treatment, vocational services, assistance with finding housing and community support.

Centerstone, a not-for-profit organization, offers a wide range of mental health and addiction services to more than 24,000 people of all ages each year. Formed through the merger of Center for Behavioral Health, Quinco Behavioral Health Systems and Dunn Center, Centerstone has been serving Indiana residents for more than five decades. The organization has more than 60 facilities across 17 Indiana counties and operates the Foster Care Select program in 24 counties. It is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). For more information about Centerstone, please call 800-344-8802 or explore our website: www.centerstone.org
