The Open Door Of Indiana, PA

Behavioral Health Organization

Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

The Open Door is a licensed non-profit behavioral health organization designed to provide treatment and services for substance use and gambling related concerns; court related programs; and crisis intervention for Armstrong and Indiana county residents with a focus on inspiring steps toward hope, courage, and recovery.

History of Organization

The Open Door (TOD), from its inception in 1972 as a United Ministry Volunteer Task Force, has offered crisis intervention services. Since that time, we have grown into a licensed outpatient facility providing a variety of services including Alcohol and Other Drug Screening, Assessment, Education, and Treatment; Crisis Intervention Services; and DUI Evaluation. In 1996, an affiliation agreement with Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC) was established to increase access for services. In 2012, TOD partnered with Armstrong-Indiana Behavioral & Developmental Health Program (BDHP) to provide telephone and walk-in crisis services, adding mobile crisis services in 2015. The Open Door staff includes a physician, full-time, Master's and Bachelor's level degreed and trained therapists, RN Nurse Navigator, criminal justice staff, an executive director and administrative staff, and a dedicated mental health crisis intervention staff. The agency is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs for Drug & Alcohol Outpatient Services; as well as being licensed by the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services for the crisis program.
