The residents of Lehigh Acres can now seek mental health and substance use treatment services through SalusCare in their new location within the Job-Link area of the Goodwill Retail Store on Lee Boulevard.

"We are very exited to be out there. We have known for years that we needed to provide services in Lehigh. We are very excited and very thankful to Goodwill to let us be out in Lehigh now," SalusCare spokesperson Todd Cordisco said.

They have been in Lehigh under the radar for a few months, smoothing out the kinks and getting settled into their new space, he said.

"We really started in earnest over the last few weeks," Cordisco said.

An office in Lehigh Acres has been something SalusCare has been wanting to do for some time.

"Space is pretty expensive to rent and, or buy," he said. "We did a trade with Goodwill. Our office is in the Goodwill Lehigh store. We gave them some space at our Cape Coral location to put Job-Links. It's a way for both of us to get into a community we wanted to be. It's a win-win for both of our organizations."

The services provided at 2825 Lee Blvd., include Access, which is a no-cost initial mental health and substance abuse screenings for first-time, non emergency patients, Outpatient Psychiatry and Outpatient Therapy.

All the services in Lehigh Acres are provided by appointment only, by calling the Welcome Center, (239) 275-3222, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There is a sliding fee scale for the Outpatient Psychiatry and Outpatient Therapy services.

"There could be little to no cost. We do take insurance and self-pay," Cordisco said.

SalusCare, a not-for-profit mental health and substance abuse service provider, incorporated after the merger of Lee Mental Health Center and Southwest Florida Addiction Services, in 2013.
