Heartland Counseling Services, Inc. has been providing mental health and substance abuse services for 41 years. Dr. Stanley Reiss started the community behavioral health center in October 1977 at Salem Lutheran Church in Homer, Nebraska. Our mission is to provide quality mental health and substance abuse services to the communities in which we serve. Heartland provides services to anyone regardless their ability to pay and partners with the state of Nebraska for individuals who do not have any health insurance. Our amazing team of 31 provides services to all of Siouxland, as well as, 11 counties in northern Nebraska.
Services include individual, family, and group mental health and substance abuse counseling, intensive outpatient program for substance abuse, wraparound services in individual's homes for those struggling with mental illness or substance abuse. Heartland also provides prevention and counseling services in six schools districts in nothern Nebraska. Most recently, Nebraska Gov. Ricketts recognized Heartland's Mobile Crisis Response Team for both youth and adults. Our staff work very closely with local law enforcement, schools, doctor's offices, and families when working with individuals who may be suicidal, homicidal, or psychotic.
Last year, Heartland served nearly 3000 individuals with over 8200 appointments.
