Berks Counseling Center is a recovery oriented behavioral health and supportive services organization providing a holistic approach to a culturally and economically diverse population for the purpose of achieving a healthy and productive life

Description:
Our purpose is to offer addiction and mental health out patient treatment, case management, supportive services, and housing. Services extend to individuals, couples, families, adolescents and children. Our target population includes Berks County residents impacted upon by chemical dependency and/or mental illness. Berks Counseling Center (BCC) places a special emphasis on serving those persons who cannot access treatment elsewhere due to financial difficulties. We believe that community enlightenment and family strength are key components to the prevention and reduction of drug abuse. We have a satellite site at the Reading/Berks Emergency Shelter in order to better serve the population residing at the Shelter. BCC also provides treatment services at the Berks County Prison and ReEntry Center. An additional site is located in Phoenixville and services for the elderly at Oakbrook and in Douglasville. Student Assistance services are offered at Reading High, the Citadel and the elementary schools.

History:
Berks Counseling Center (BCC) is a private, non-profit corporation founded in October 1977 as Berks Youth Counseling Center. BCC is licensed by the State Dept. of Health, Division of Program Licensing; and the Dept. of Public Welfare, Office of Mental Health. BCC has been providing treatment services to the residents of center city Reading for the past 30 plus years. Additionally, BCC has provided both transitional (women and their children) and permanent housing for persons with disabilities for the past twenty years.
