Moorings Park Foundation Grant Funds Behavioral Health Treatment for Seniors at David Lawrence Centers

Naples, Fl – David Lawrence Centers for Behavioral Health (DLC), Collier County’s only comprehensive, not-for-profit behavioral health provider serving children, adults and families, has received a $20,000 grant from the Moorings Park Foundation for the third year in a row to provide uninsured or underinsured seniors who are 65 and older with mental health and substance use disorder treatment. The Moorings Park Endowment Fund grant is a result of the Moorings Park Social Accountability Program, which supports unmet needs by funding community health initiatives to local nonprofit and public health agencies.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that one in four older adults in America has at least one identified mental health concern.

“The number of clients ages 65 plus who are seeking treatment at DLC has increased in recent years, especially as the population of our community ages,” said DLC President and CEO Scott Burgess. “These individuals are typically requiring care for major depression or addictive disease brought on by prolonged use/misuse of opioid pain killers.”

The grant will help seniors access treatment services they might otherwise not seek as a result of their inability to pay. The funds will be utilized for crisis stabilization, adult detoxification, residential addiction treatment and outpatient medical services.

“David Lawrence Centers greatly values our continued partnership with Moorings Park Foundation and appreciates their continued investment in senior health and wellness,” added Burgess. “The funds will eliminate financial burdens for some of our most vulnerable, aging citizens so they can live their life to the fullest.”

Southwest Florida nonprofit David Lawrence Centers for Behavioral Health (DLC) is a national leader providing compassionate, advanced, and exceptional mental health, substance use, and integrated healthcare solutions, available for children, adolescents and adults. DLC’s innovative treatment includes inpatient, outpatient, residential, and community-based services – a comprehensive system of care funded by community and government support. Each year, DLC serves more than 9,000 people through over 300,000 treatment sessions. To learn more, please call 239-455-8500 or visit www.DLCenters.org.
