We are committed to quality mental health care that is provided in a collaborative effort with the consumer’s overall health strategies and an array of medical services. We are further committed to the philosophy that Oceanside Community Services, LLP exists for the customer/client.

The market for behavioral health care is viable and growing, especially for outpatient work.  One major reason for this is the State of Maine’s desire to keep families together and reduce utilization of more acute and costly care such as Crisis / Hospitalization / or Long Term Residential Placement.  Outside of general outpatient therapies, three primary aspects of our work include:

  • Working with families, adolescents and young adults who engage in sexually abusive behaviors, trauma, recovery and abuse and neglect.
  • Working with people who have intellectual disabilities.
  • Offering consultation to other companies who are interested in obtaining accreditation from CARF [Commission of Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities].  CARF focus is on ensuring companies meet the needs for quality services providing to their communities.
