New Health Clinic Opens in Kent County for Delaware Residents

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- A new support clinic has opened for individuals and families in Kent County impacted by the effects of mental health and substance use issues.

The Division of Abuse and Mental Health has opened the Kent County Bridge on the third floor of the James W. Williams  State Service Center in Dover. This clinic is similar to those in New Castle and Sussex Counties.

The Kent County Bridge Clinic is expected to also "pilot the use of nurse practitioners to help explore the integration of physical and behavioral health care," according to the center. The same services are available in all three clinics. That includes: 

  • Substance use disorder and mental health screenings.
  •  Referrals to treatment.
  • Evaluations conducted by on-site qualified, licensed clinicians.
  • A navigational peer who can connect individuals with support services within the care
    network.
  • Training for administering naloxone, an overdose-reversal medication.
  • Transportation to and from the facility may be available.
  • All services made available regardless of ability to pay.

The clinic on River Road in Dover is open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is available to all Delaware residents interested.
