Programs & Services 5 service locations in Columbus

CND reaches the most at-need populations in our community and responds to community needs, serving inner-city, economically distressed neighborhoods. CND provides outpatient mental health and substance use disorder treatment services to adults, prevention services to youth grades k-12 to reduce substance use and abuse, and violence intervention to youth and young adults.

Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder Treatment

At CND, we treat anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. (you read that right). Our work is successful when we can help people that need help, removing the barriers that interfere with their recovery and by providing individualized treatment sensitive to cultural, gender, and ethnic factors. That’s not all. We have a recovery house, referred through our treatment program, that houses 5 men in recovery.

Youth Programs

Youth programs include our annual summer day camp, an after-school program, and mentoring and tutoring youth in more than 20 Columbus City and Reynoldsburg schools. We work with high school students in our FOCUS leadership program and for 30 years, have taken high school students on an annual college tour.
