Introduction

The Norfolk Community Services Board was founded in 1969 so that Norfolk residents with mental health, intellectual disability, and substance abuse needs could receive treatment in the community where they lived, surrounded by their family and friends. Over the years, continued emphasis has been placed on community treatment, with an emphasis placed there by consumers themselves; by their loved ones who want to be nearby; by the professionals who feel that patients progress better in familiar surroundings; by advocacy groups that rally for the rights of the disabled; and by the government, which oversees the welfare of the people we serve and treat.

About Us

Today, we provide treatment and rehabilitation services to over 9,000 Norfolk citizens yearly. The level of service each person needs can vary from ongoing support to short term intervention, with most having needs that fall somewhere in between. In whatever manner people come to us, we assure their full participation in decisions about what services are appropriate to their individual needs and circumstances. We are dedicated to providing those services in the least restrictive environment possible - usually at one of our service locations or in the consumer's home.

Services Provided
