Community Based Services

While many students, clients, and families take advantage of Centerpoint services in one of our clinic or school campus locations, just as many are served through community-sites that allow ‘easier access’ to our supports and programs. Centerpoint’s field and community-based services include:

  • Student Support Counseling (SAP) in Chittenden County public schools
  • School-Based Therapy
  • Screening, brief intervention, and access to services and supports (SBIRT) through Checkpoint
  • Community-Recovery Support Counseling
  • Counseling and Case Management for court-involved youth
  • Home-based Outreach and Assertive Engagement Services
  • Individual and Group Counseling for youth involved through juvenile detention
  • Assessment and Counseling for pediatric and primary care medical practices

Community-Based Programming at the Centerpoint School

Community-based programming is a foundation of the treatment and educational services at the Centerpoint School. Through Career-Development Experience, community connections and partnerships, the Centerpoint Cooperative, internships and mentorships, college classes, and community skill building, Centerpoint School students address many of their social, emotional, and educational needs through real-life applied learning experiences. “Bringing the classroom alive” and “the schoolhouse without walls” are often heard descriptions of the learning process at Centerpoint – an approach that allows students to see the practical value of their educational experience. This community-based programming also helps to foster lifelong connections that are important for our students as they pursue further education, future employment, and successful young adult community living.
