Hospitality Industry Resources

For more than 35 years, Community Care Services has been committed to providing specialized outpatient treatment of mental health and substance use disorders for Wayne County residents.

We know that the restaurant, bar, and hospitality industries have been especially hard hit, and we want to reach out to this tight-knit community to provide much needed supportive services to address symptoms like anxiety, depression, struggles with substance use, or any other life changes impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective immediately, Community Care Services will help employees by providing the services needed to cope during these difficult times, and to do so, we have designated specific resources and tools in place.

We will provide Telehealth services which include mental health and substance abuse therapy as well as assist with referrals, applying for health benefits, and other immediate resources.

We know that many of you have no income right now and no health insurance. CCS will work to identify available resources to offset the cost of services and will accept clients who have little or no insurance. The only criteria is that you must be a Wayne County resident.

Community Care Services is here to listen, to offer hope and a path forward for those who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues.

I encourage you to contact us today at 313-389-7500 or request a call back from our staff. Visit our website at comcareserv.org to learn more about us.

Thank you and be well.

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Managing Anxiety and Stress

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.

People with preexisting mental health conditions should continue with their treatment and be aware of new or worsening symptoms. 

Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

Things you can do to support yourself

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

Sharing the facts about COVID-19 and understanding the actual risk to yourself and people you care about can make an outbreak less stressful.
