Behavioral Health, Addiction, Mental Health and Primary Care in Connecticut
Wheeler Clinic is Connecticut’s most comprehensive nonprofit provider of primary and behavioral health services. We offer compassionate care at all stages of life to more than 30,000 individuals, families and communities each year, across the entire state.
Our array of local services is as diverse as those we serve. We treat issues from the common cold to chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes. We help adults with treatment for depression, treatment for anxiety, marital difficulties, and complex mental health and substance use and addiction treatment.
We serve children and adolescents with emotional, developmental, cognitive or behavioral challenges, and we address a range of issues, including treatment for anxiety and depression, substance abuse, and more. We engage your family in meaningful ways so that your child can be supported and experience and sustain recovery, health and growth over the long term.
We are a vital link in Connecticut’s health care system, connecting consumers to resources needed to achieve wellness. We meet people where they are in their recovery and also where they live, through a range of programs provided in community settings and families’ homes.
Wheeler is innovative. Our creativity and commitment to excellence result in programs and services that address the whole person, using models that are proven, positive and supported by research.
Wheeler Centers of Excellence in both addiction treatment and child and adolescent treatment develop cutting-edge clinical innovation through evidence-based practices, offer world-class customer care, and provide easy access to treatment and recovery services that are culturally, gender-, and age-responsive. We partner with youth and families, achieving excellent outcomes and high customer satisfaction.
We truly believe that every life can be changed. Our goal is to help people make healthy choices. We listen. We work hard. We maintain hope and a belief that what is doesn’t have to be. Above all, we put into action every day our skills, commitment and dedication to fostering positive change.
The result: healthier tomorrows for those we serve.
