Atlantic Behavioral Health at Newton Medical Center will offer an open house of its Outpatient Department on Wednesday, April 23, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, to allow the community to meet with clinicians and learn more about its counseling groups and supportive services.
Taking place during Alcohol Awareness Month in April and just before Mental Health Month in May, the event will highlight programs that address those and other behavioral health issues.
