"Our vision is to be the community based behavioral health care organization of choice. Services are delivered in a proactive, flexible and consumer driven fashion."

- Alan Furst, Community Psychiatric Institute

  Excecutive Director

Welcome to CPI

Community Psychiatric Institute (CPI), founded in 1972, is a private, non-for-profit ambulatory behavioral health and sub- stance abuse program. We provide psychiatric and biopsycho-social services for adults over 18 years old.


CPI's comprehensive program is designed to provide conti- nuity of care following inpatient hospitalization or as an alternate to psychiatric/substance abuse hospitalization. Our staff works with clients to maximize their level of functioning by providing a full range of therapeutic and rehabilitative services. Treatment is offered in our partial hospital, intensive out-patient services or in the out-patient department.


CPI serves those individuals who exhibit an impaired ability to function autonomously on a daily basis due to the presence of an acute or chronic disabling emotional, cognitive and/or social dysfunction.


CPI is proud of its new facility. After nearly 40 years in our previously location, we now offer barrier free access to our entire facility. The enhanced amenities include spacious group and interviewing rooms, a medical/nursing suite enabling us to offer a range of physical healthcare services. Each of our rooms are wired for audiovisual/cat-5/ and the latest in safety and security. We have a wonderful cafeteria and kitchen serving excellent breakfast and hot lunches.

Letter from the Director

Hello Friends,

As CPI's Executive Director, I welcome you to our website and to visit with us in our new state-of-the-art treatment facility. CPI has been providing services to the community for over 50 years. Our goal is to help clients return to an independent level of functioning through progressive innovative treatment and efficient use of our resources. Our program offers an alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization as well as a step-down following inpatient care. Client days are spent in treatment, which permits nights with family and friends. This model provides for better community adjustment and reduces treatment costs.


I encourage you to call or email me to arrange for a mutually convenient time to visit with us. I am sure you will be impressed with our  new facility.


Best Regards,

Alan N. Furst
