Dear CCTI Family,
As you read this, we find ourselves in an unprecedented time in history. We are mandated to be in our homes and people you know may be sick or you are worried that you yourself may get sick. These are scary times. I wanted to put some information on the website to help you and your family get through these trying weeks or months. Many of Carbon County’s resources are still available to students and their families. Here is a list of some helpful information and numbers.
– Carbon, Monroe, and Pike Drug and Alcohol – cmpda.cog.pa.us
* Employees are doing counseling from home and are still doing intakes if someone needs outpatient help.
* Please visit their website for online and virtual Recovery Support Resources.
– Carbon, Monroe, and Pike Mental Health and Developmental Services – 610-377-0773
* If you have been working with a Case Manager, they will be calling each person on their caseload.
* Mental Health is still essential, so they are providing Telehealth.
* They are taking new referrals and completing intakes by calling the number above.

– From the state level, beginning on April 1, The Center For Community Resources will offer a 24/7 mental health and crisis support line for people dealing with anxiety or other difficult emotions. Callers will be able to speak with staff who are trained in trauma-informed principles and will listen, assess the person’s needs, triage, and refer to other local supports and professionals as needed. The Mental Health Support Line can be reached Toll-Free 24/7 at
-We have attached some other information that you may find helpful.
* Families who many need help finding food, emergency housing, utility assistance, and crisis intervention.
* Helping parents deal with homebound children during the pandemic.
* Carbon County Resource Card
As always, if you find yourself struggling with thoughts of suicide, and the above interventions have not worked, please call 911 or get yourself to the nearest emergency room. As more resources become available we will update the website. We will get through this! Please stay safe and take care.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else. Stay safe.
