Recently, there are concerns in Columbus about the closing of the oldest Mental Health and Addiction Treatment, called Columbus Area Integrated Health Services (CAIHS) . A group called “Concerned Black Citizens of Columbus” is speaking out about that matter.
The board of trustees for the Health Agency turned the center over to the county. This then set in for financial collapse for the center. It was closed down last Tuesday with employees being let go almost immediately without pay. This also led to 1,400 people not being able to get help with their mental health and addiction. They belive that the Center was still full of life and doing well. Now, the people speaking out are trying to see what the other reasons for the closing may be.
