Stairways opens new Outpatient West satellite

Thursday, January 07, 2016

Stairways Behavioral Health’s Erie Outpatient Clinic has opened a new satellite site located inside the main administration building, 2185 W. 8th St.

The new site houses the same functions as the Clinic located at 2910 State Street, including medication management, nursing services as well as group, individual, family and couples therapy. The Outpatient West space will also boast increased handicap accessibility as well as greater convenience for residents of Erie’s west side.

Becky Clark, Stairways’ director of treatment services, said the new westside clinic will offer clients a variety of options for their treatment setting.

“The EOP West Satellite, in addition to being more convenient for individuals who may reside on the west side of Erie, will also provide a smaller, quieter and less busy setting for individuals who may find our traditional outpatient locations overly stimulating,” Clark said. “For folks with intense anxiety, this can make a world of difference. Overall, this will be an opportunity for us to allow individuals more choices in their environments of care.”

Outpatient West will occupy the same space that originally housed Community Integration Inc., a community outpatient mental health provider in the 1990s that helped integrate individuals transitioning from Warren State Hospital into the community during the Erie/Warren project. Community Integration Inc. would later become Safe Harbor Behavioral Health.

Dr. Meghan McCarthy will serve as the on-site physician and will be joined by therapists Melissa Schmidt, Donnelle Super, John Sushereba and Caty Fischer.
