TWO VALUED NJ AGENCIES BRING CONTINUUM OF SERVICE TO ALL AGES
AND FORM A NEW AFFILIATION …
* LEGACY TREATMENT SERVICES and COMMUNITY TREATMENT SOLUTIONS *
Mt. Laurel, NJ (June 20, 2017) — New Jersey’s most vulnerable children, adults, and families will benefit from a new affiliation, effective July 1, 2017, between Legacy Treatment Services and Community Treatment Solutions that will provide a continuum of mental health and developmental services spanning 14 counties in New Jersey as well as Delaware. The organizations share a goal of supporting individuals in overcoming challenges and working toward a life of wellness and recovery.
In the reorganization of these agencies, Roy Leitstein, Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Treatment Services will oversee the new collaboration with Lynn Santilli Connor, MSW, LCSW, BCBA serving as Executive Director of Community Treatment Solutions. Susan Buchwald, the current Chief Executive Office of Community Treatment Services will become Legacy’s Chief Strategy Officer. CTS will maintain all their existing programs and contracts but all administrative functions including finance, quality improvement and human resources will be centralized at LTS.
Established in 1990, Community Treatment Solutions is a community-based continuum of care for children, youth and their families. Services are designed for youth who have experienced trauma and present with behavioral and addiction issues. It also has programs for youth who are developmentally and/or intellectually delayed and are victims of human trafficking.
With over 200 years of experience serving New Jersey’s most vulnerable and at-risk children, youth, adults and families, Legacy Treatment Services serves as the premier resource in the region for residential, behavioral, and mental health needs.
There is enthusiastic support by members of both boards who see this alliance as greater strength and resources for the clients they serve. Legacy Board Chair Gloria Miller said, “This affiliation takes two stellar organizations and joins them into one creative, dynamic and viable force. Sarah Zuba, Community Treatment Solutions Board Chair adds, “We have had a long standing positive relationship with Legacy Treatment Services. Affiliating with Legacy is a natural extension of our mission and gives us new opportunities that are very exciting.”
