New Jersey Congressman Donald Norcross announced that Acenda Integrated Health, located in Glassboro, will receive approximately $3,352,000 in federal funding over the course of two years from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for a Mental Health & Substance Abuse Service Grant. Congressman Norcross said that this funding will allow Acenda Health, a Gloucester County health care facility, to help residents with both physical and mental health needs.
The grant, which runs from May 2020 through April 2022, will be used to administer a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) which will allow for easily accessible, person-centered care to reduce unnecessary hospital utilization, increase treatment engagement, and promote long-term wellness. This essential funding will allow the health care facility to expand capacity in order to more rapidly support more individuals with mental health and addiction disorders.
Acenda is an integrated health care organization dedicated to world-class prevention, treatment, and wellness services, compassionately delivered to ensure that every individual, family and community achieves their greatest potential. Acenda is at the forefront of community based services by offering over 100 innovative programs to support children, adults, families, veterans, caregivers, and the community at large.
