Bridgewell Expands Behavioral Health Services in the Merrimack Valley
New Clinic to be Called Bridgewell Counseling Services (BCS), Amesbury
Amesbury – The Merrimack Valley will gain a new behavioral health clinic as of March 1, 2022 according to Bridgewell, a nonprofit organization that provides human services across eastern Massachusetts.
Located at 24 Morrill Place, Amesbury, Massachusetts the clinic will be called Bridgewell Counseling Services (BCS), Amesbury.
“With the opening of Bridgewell Counseling Services in Amesbury, we have a unique opportunity to expand our range of vital services to individuals and families in the Merrimack Valley,” Christopher Tuttle, Bridgewell’s President and CEO, stated.
Bridgewell has been providing behavioral health services in Lowell for more than two decades through its BCS Lowell clinic and its Lowell Adult Day Treatment (LADT) program. The organization also provides behavioral health services at its Sovner Center clinic in Danvers and BCS Lynn.
“We understand the importance of access to quality behavioral health care,” Kimberley Haley, Bridgewell’s Vice President of Behavioral Health, stated. “In keeping with our mission, Bridgewell‘s clinical team intends to be responsive to the needs of the community for those living in Amesbury and surrounding areas, ensuring that behavioral health services are readily available.”
BCS Amesbury will employ a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians to provide a full range of behavioral health services for children, adolescents and adults including individual, family and group treatment, addiction services, and services for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
Amesbury Psychological Center (APC), currently occupying the space, has informed their clients that they will cease services on February 28th. To ensure that current APC clients do not experience an interruption in treatment, Bridgewell plans to begin offering services by March 1st.
“We are committed to making every effort to ensure there will be no gap in treatment for those who need behavioral health services in the area,” Matthew Prahl, Bridgewell’s Director of Clinic Operations, said. “All clients currently receiving services at APC have the opportunity to be seen at our BCS Amesbury clinic.”
“Initially, our clinicians will hold appointments with clients via telehealth, until the space at 24 Morrill Place is available for us to see clients in person.” To learn more about the behavioral health services that will be available at BCS Amesbury, visit www.bridgewell.org, or call 978-674-8767 to make an appointment.
