Brandywine Counseling & Community Services, Inc. (BCCS) is a welcoming and innovative organization that contributes to stronger communities and enhancing quality of life by creatively providing Education, Advocacy, Treatment, and Prevention services. With integrity, we promote hope and empowerment to persons and families touched by mental health, substance use, HIV and multiple occurring diagnoses, and their related challenges.
For more than 25 years, BCCS has been a trusted provider of outstanding substance abuse and behavioral health treatment, HIV/AIDS prevention and education initiatives, mental health and advocacy services. Our core program offerings fall under one of four critical areas of care: Education, Advocacy, Prevention, and Treatment. We pride ourselves on helping members of our community recover with dignity, while also focusing on improving their physical health. BCCS makes good things possible.
Originally part of Wilmington Medical Center, BCCS was incorporated as a separate non-profit in 1985. We have been a full member United Way agency since 1988.
We serve populations that are often considered the most vulnerable. We understand and treat behavioral illnesses directly, along with their indirect consequences, such as substance abuse, child neglect and abuse, family violence, infant mortality, and HIV/AIDS. Our programs provide intervention and treatment through the use of medication, counseling, education, and referral to self-help groups. Appropriate aftercare referrals provide continuing support for recovery.
Since 2003, BCCS has worked to improve customer access to and retention in treatment as part of the nationwide Network for Improvement of Addiction Treatment (NIATx) project. We have done this by identifying and improving flawed processes, and without additional costs or staff.
We also work on a sliding fee scale – we work within all budgets!
"At Brandywine, our customers have come to expect the best. The best possible care. The most knowledgeable staff. The most comprehensive services, all in one place. We are your best chance at a new life. We are growing, changing to better meet your needs. Let us help you. Change is good.”
