Wellmore Behavioral Health Expands Children’s Services In Naugatuck

Naugatuck, CT.  Wellmore Behavioral Health held an Open House and Ribbon Cutting to celebrate its move into expanded office space at 150 Meadow Street in Naugatuck on January 23rd and was attended by local elected officials, school staff, funders, donors and friends.    Wellmore (formerly known as the Child Guidance Clinic of Greater Waterbury and Wellpath) has operated an Outpatient office in Naugatuck for more than 15 years, providing child and family oriented therapy, counseling and specialty groups.  The expansion to the Meadow Street site came about as the result of a high and growing demand for local services.

Speaking to the guests present, Gary M. Steck, Wellmore CEO, expressed his appreciation for the support received to expand in Naugatuck in saying “It is gratifying in such challenging times to receive such a warm embrace from the community”.

Wellmore Behavioral Health receives support from the United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls, the Saunders Fund (in association with Connecticut Community Foundation), the Naugatuck Savings Bank Foundation and the State Department of Children and Families to provide services through the Naugatuck site.  Over 300 Naugatuck children and their families were served by Wellmore programs last year.  With the opening of the new site, hours of operation and staffing have been expanded.  In addition to office based therapies, Wellmore plans to enhance its home-based outreach as well as begin a new  partnership with Naugatuck Public Schools in the coming months in offering school-based substance abuse counseling services at both the High School and  Middle school.  To make a referral for Children’s Outpatient Services please call 203-756-7287.  To access our mobile crisis services dial 211.  And for more information about Wellmore, please visit our website at www.wellmore.org.
