IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING, WE ARE HERE TO HELP. Mental health and substance use crisis support is just a phone call away.
Vinfen Behavioral Health (VBH) has expanded its community services to include a new Community Behavioral Health Center (CBHC) located in Lowell. In addition to urgent and routine outpatient services, the CBHC provides crisis intervention services to support individuals and families in a variety of new ways. We provide around-the-clock, 24/7 mental health and substance use evaluation and assessment to children, youth, and adults in crisis or in need of support. Instead of going to the emergency room, services can be provided to you over the phone, in your home, at school, or in another community setting.
VBH Community Services offers crisis, urgent, and routine mental health and addiction services, care coordination, peer supports, and screening and coordination with primary care.

IMPROVING ACCESS FOR THE
COMMUNITIES WE SERVE
When you call for crisis intervention services we will:
- Evaluate the situation and make a plan for you to be seen by one of our clinicians
- Work with you to develop a strategy that promotes long-term stability
- Connect you with a strong support network and create a comprehensive plan for stabilization and sustained recovery
WHO CAN CALL FOR CRISIS INTERVENTION SERVICES?
The CBHC will provide services to people in the Greater Lowell region including Billerica, Chelmsford, Dracut, Dunstable, Lowell, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, and Westford.
Anyone may call for assistance regarding a mental health crisis or urgent need for substance use intervention. This includes the individual experiencing the crisis, family members, mental health workers, first responders, physicians or other medical providers, schools, employers, and community members.
We contract with and accept most MassHealth and most private health insurance plans. No one residing in the communities we serve will be denied services, regardless of ability to pay.
To provide the most comprehensive CBHC services to the region, Vinfen has partnered with two longstanding and highly respected behavioral health providers, Advocates and Wayside Youth and Family Network to provide VBH Mobile Crisis Intervention (MCI) and VBH Community Crisis Stabilization (CCS) services.
