High Point’s outpatient substance use disorder and mental health services are located across Southeastern Massachusetts.
Outpatient substance use disorder and mental health services are located across Southeastern Massachusetts in Brockton, Middleborough, New Bedford, Plymouth, and Taunton. At most sites, services are provided during the day and many clinics have evening hours. We offer individual, group, medication management, and family services to address diverse clinical needs. An interdisciplinary team of professionals includes licensed social workers, mental health clinicians, Master’s level clinicians, certified addictions clinicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists.
High Point provides Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) at all outpatient sites. Home-based therapy is also provided. Mental health services for children, adolescents, families, and adults are offered in the home for clients who would benefit more from receiving counseling in their own environment. In addition, intensive home-based services for children and families suffering from complex mental health diagnoses are offered. The services are family-focused with the goals of preventing out of home placement of the children and improving family functioning as a unit.
Services include individual, group, couples and family treatment for adolescents and adults. Services include therapy, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), including Suboxone and Vivitrol, psychiatric medication services, driver’s alcohol education (DAE), second offender aftercare (SOA), and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). We specialize in treating individuals with both substance use disorder, as well as a wide range of mental health conditions. Additionally, we offer substance use disorder evaluations for court-mandated individuals.
Opioid Treatment Program
High Point’s Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) provides methadone treatment to adults age 18 and older with opioid use disorder. The OTP is focused on individualized treatment. Treatment plans are created with the patient and primary clinician and then reviewed by the multi-disciplinary treatment team with the medical director signing off. Populations served include but are not limited to men, women, pregnant women, patients with chronic illnesses, and dually diagnosed mental health disorders.
Counseling is provided in individual sessions, as well as groups. Relapse prevention, anxiety reduction, women’s and moms’ groups are offered.

Additional Initiatives & Services
Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI)
Serving families and youth (up to age 21).
CBHI services provide individualized, intensive therapy and support to youth and their families. CBHI connects families struggling with mental health and substance use to community resources, enabling them to work towards self-sufficiency. CBHI has two separate services which can be provided:
In-Home Therapy (IHT) is a team-based approach comprised of a Master’s level or licensed clinician and paraprofessional therapeutic training and support staff working together with identified youth and their family to strengthen relationships, improve communication, learn to resolve conflicts, and develop healthy routines.
Therapeutic Mentoring (TM) is a 1:1 service between a paraprofessional staff member and the identified youth, working together to develop and improve the youth’s coping skills, social skills, life skills, and communication skills. They work in conjunction with other providers, i.e. outpatient and in-home therapists, to coordinate care.
Serving all ages.
Home-based therapy provides traditional outpatient individual, couples, and family therapy for adults, adolescents, and children in the home and/or school setting. Our interdisciplinary team is comprised of licensed social workers, mental health clinicians, Master’s level clinicians, and certified addiction specialists. Psychiatric referrals are made when appropriate.
High Point understands the challenges of accessing mental health services in our communities. In order to meet the need, we have partnered with area schools to offer therapeutic services during school hours. Students can sit down with a clinician weekly to process any struggles they may be experiencing. Symptoms may include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, truancy/non-compliance, ADHD, and spectrum disorders.
School-based services also help support administrative staff, as well as the child’s family by removing the burden of weekly scheduling and transportation to outside mental health services. Students are connected to services much quicker faster, thereby avoiding lengthy outpatient waitlists. Parents should contact their child’s school to inquire about High Point’s school-based program.
DAE- Driver Alcohol Education Program
The Driver Alcohol Education Program is for individuals charged with a First Offense Driving Under the Influence. MA General Law Chapter 90-24D provides the option of attending a DAE program as an alternative to a lengthier license loss, heavier fines, and potential incarceration. Explore and identify your relationship with alcohol and/or drugs in order to make better decisions for yourself and community, while avoiding further legal consequences. Program is 40 hours over 17 weekly 2 hour sessions and includes a victim impact forum, two community self-help meetings and discharge meeting.
SOA – Second Offender Aftercare Program
The Second Offender Aftercare Program is a court-mandated year-long treatment program, which can be completed either on an individual basis or within group therapy sessions. This program is covered by personal health insurance and may be at little to no cost, or the cost of your insurance co-payment for every service. Clients participating in this program are required to attend a minimum of two weekly AA meetings, and submit to random breathalyzers and drug screens to ensure sobriety.
