We all experience setbacks – and the stress, sadness, and anxiety that can come with them. This is where Cherry Health’s behavioral health services come in. Cherry Health can help you manage stress, sadness, worry, grief, trauma, relationship problems, communication problems, substance use, and more, all with one goal: to help you lead the life you deserve.
We work with patients to ease and heal the emotional pain of depression, anxiety, and much more using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, along with other types of therapy. You can work with our therapists to address a wide variety of concerns, including substance use, psychiatric disorders, stress or trauma, family and relationship issues, emotional or sexual abuse, and dealing with life’s unexpected challenges. We provide individual and group treatment as well as consultations with psychiatrists for medications.
In addition to our many behavioral health services for adults, we offer counseling for children and adolescents at Heart of the City Health Center Pediatrics and Heart of the City Counseling Center. Therapists work with children to address behavior problems, mood concerns, trauma, challenges with family or friends, low self-esteem, communication issues, and other hurdles.
Psychiatric Care, Case Management & Psychosocial Rehabilitation
Cherry Health provides a full range of outpatient psychiatric care, including individual therapy, case management, medication management, employment support and socialization at Maple Health Home, located inside Heart of the City Health Center. Patients must be referred through Network180 to access these services.
Maple Health Home is a setting where a team of health professionals works together to provide behavioral health care treatment and medical treatment for people with mental health concerns all in one place. The team may include a psychiatrist, a physician, a nurse, a therapist, a case manager, a peer support specialist, and a medical assistant. Family and other health care workers can also be part of the team.
Maple Health Home is especially well suited for people dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and substance use disorders. Navigating the many mental health resources out there can be challenging, so the Maple Health Home team coordinates services available to you within the community.
Sheldon House Clubhouse and Lakeside Clubhouse provide services to people living with mental illness. Using an evidence-based model, our Clubhouses help people develop new skills and personal relationships, seek education and employment, and ultimately develop both a sense of community and the ability to live independently. We believe that all our members have something to contribute, so staff and members work side by side at both clubhouses.
Sheldon House and Lakeside Clubhouse are accredited by Clubhouse International and operate under its proven standards. Both clubhouses are open to patients of Cherry Health as well as others living with mental illness in our community.
Substance Use Treatment
Recovery from opiate use is possible. We help people break the cycle of addiction to heroin and other opioids, including prescription drugs, by providing medications, like Methadone, that help stabilize brain activity and manage withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay sober. From there, you can engage in therapy and other supportive services to assist in your successful recovery. Patients are referred to services through Network180.

Office Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) is an approach to treatment and recovery from opiate use that combines traditional treatment, including individual therapy, along with medications that can help support recovery. Medications can offer multiple benefits, including reducing cravings and urges and minimizing the effects of withdrawal symptoms. In the OBOT setting, a board-licensed provider prescribes medications, including Suboxone/buprenorphine or Vivitrol/naltrexone. These services are offered in an outpatient/primary care setting which removes barriers to treatment. OBOT services include medication management, individual therapy, and recovery coaching services.
People often use alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, opiates, and other substances to alleviate anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues. This approach may provide temporary relief, but over the long term, it hurts your body without addressing the root cause – and it keeps you from leading the life you deserve.
Cherry Health’s treatment programs have put many people on the path to a successful recovery. We help you reduce risky behaviors related to substance use, and if you have a behavioral health challenge you’re dealing with, we can treat that together. Experienced, credentialed therapists lead our traditional outpatient substance use treatment programs, which consist of one-on-one sessions lasting 45 to 60 minutes.
If your life circumstances make it difficult to cope with cravings, or if you have not been able to stabilize your substance use in a traditional outpatient setting, Cherry Health’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Heart of the City Health Center may be a good option for you.
IOP is designed for people requiring counseling more than once a week for substance use disorders. The program provides monitoring several times a week in a supportive group setting. The group meets three times a week for three hours, for an average of five weeks.
IOP is for people who can commit to a structured program requiring regular attendance and active participation. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that honors your personal preferences within the guidelines of the program. We understand each person brings a different life experience to the program, and we are sensitive to everyone’s needs, personality, communication style, and readiness to change.
