Biggest grant ever to treat patients

The Center for Addiction Treatment has been awarded $500,000 by the SL Gimbel Foundation, the largest grant for patient care operations ever received by Cincinnati’s longest-serving addiction treatment center.

CAT will use the money to help cover the one-year cost of providing primary care services for 1,200 patients and mental health counseling for 520 patients at its West End facilities.

The grant is intended to improve health outcomes for patients in early sobriety and in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction at CAT’s Monarch Primary Care Clinic and its Mental Health Counseling Center.
