Centerpoint

  • Centerpoint is a unique collaboration between 3 of the primary youth and family mental health service agencies in Vermont.
  • The Centerpoint Collaborative is comprised of Northeastern Family Institute VT a division of North American Family Institute, HowardCenter's Child, Youth, and Family Services, Matrix Health Systems.
  • In 1995, these agencies brought together their existing intensive adolescent treatment services in an effort to strengthen programming for high-needs teens and their families.
  • At the time, Centerpoint served 11 students through their fledgling day treatment program and approximately 100 youth through an intensive outpatient (IOP) substance abuse program.
  • These services were provided through a small facility in Winooski, Vermont.
  • Over the years, Centerpoint has grown dramatically. Centerpoint's Alternative Education and Day Treatment programs serve 32-38 students each day at the Centerpoint School and CP Stepping Stones, with almost 70 students served each school year.
  • Our Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services have seen an expansion in our clinic-based services and we now provide clinical services in a range of community settings, including schools, the courthouse, residential and hospital diversion settings, and in the juvenile detention facility.
  • Centerpoint's Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services serve more than 600 teens and families each year.
