What We Do

We help more individuals and families in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties each year who are suffering from mental illness and addiction issues by allocating public funding to purchase a system of care to meet their needs.

We help more individuals gain access to treatment by linking them to counselors with multicultural, multi-lingual skills who can better address their needs.

We initiated the Returning Vets Behavioral Health Task Force to develop a safety net for soldiers coming home with behavioral health issues.

Our annual Family Reunification Day, replicated in 12 states, celebrates the achievements of overcoming the cycle of addiction, gaining control of life and custody of children.

More than 75 percent of adults and children successfully complete treatment programs, surpassing the state average for rehabilitation.

More than 80 percent of adults find jobs after treatment despite tough economic conditions.

We ensure our contracting agencies comply with the state Department of Children and Families and the federal requirements for the use of public funds.

We promote consumer and family rights by ensuring our clients receive representation on the Network’s board of directors.

We initiate dialogue in the community to identify gaps in the health care system and provide solutions.

Our network of providers donate more than $3 million in excess behavioral health services to make up for shortfalls in state and federal funding to help individuals in need.
