About Community Services

The Office of Community Services for Warren and Washington Counties serves as the Mental Health Department for both Warren and Washington Counties.  We are governed by a nine-member Community Services Board in each county, and the County Board of Supervisors. We also oversee a local planning process through a subcommittee structure of the Community Services Boards. 

The Office of Community Services is responsible for administering the local Single Point of Access (SPOA) process for referrals for mental health residential and care management services. We also coordinate the Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) Program for Warren and Washington Counties. This program provides for an enhanced array of outpatient services, through a court order, for eligible individuals over 18 years of age with a history of non-compliance with recommended treatment. Please follow the links on this page, or contact the Office of Community Services at (518) 792-7143 for more information regarding these initiatives.

Please contact our office if you have any questions regarding our services, or need information regarding initiating a referral
