Members Education and Network for Dependency (“MEND”) Program

As a part of its focus on fostering a healthy work and life-balance for its members and their dependents, the New York City District Council of Carpenters Welfare Fund has launched the Members Education and Network for Dependency (“MEND”) Program, which gives participants and their dependents access to confidential treatment for substance abuse and other related problems. The program is located at 395 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014, on the 5th floor.

The goal of the MEND Program is to provide assistance to participants and dependents in addressing substance abuse issues through the following services:

  • Referrals to appropriate level of treatment including inpatient and outpatient treatment for all substances,
  • Case management and Coordination of Services with outside providers,
  • Supportive services, and
  • Education.

More specifically, MEND is designed to:

  • Verify eligibility for coverage, and/or assist in locating and obtaining coverage,
  • Conduct thorough assessments for appropriate level of treatment and length of stay,
  • Provide treatment authorization in accordance with established guidelines,
  • Assist participants and/or dependents in identifying their treatment needs and goals,
  • Help participants and their dependents to secure services at treatment facilities,
  • Provide in-house support services including individual and family counseling, support groups, and educational groups,
  • Provide educational workshops.

If you or one of your dependents is struggling with substance abuse, please contact the MEND Program for assistance from our accredited staff. The MEND program can be reached by phone at (212) 366-7590 or by email at MEND@nyccbf.org. Please remember that there is no shame in asking for help, that MEND operates under strict confidentiality restrictions, and that we are here to help you and your family.
