Outpatient Counseling Program
The Outpatient Counseling Program is designed to meet the individual needs of adult clients seeking mental health services.

Specific services provided by the program include:
Free confidential assessment and referral services
Initial Evaluations with a psychiatrist or physician assistant
Memory Impairment Evaluation Services
Group Therapy

The Program offers intensive outpatient treatment and periodic outpatient therapy based on the individual client’s needs. Group therapy is the preferred mode of treatment since it is our strong belief that interaction with others in addition to medication management assists clients in getting better more quickly. The Program does, however, provide some individual therapy on limited basis.

The Program also provides counseling to clients who only need periodic outpatient support. The therapy focuses on enhancing the personal skills and resources needed to foster independence, self-confidence and self-reliance. The multi-disciplinary treatment program focuses on the individual person to determine an individualized treatment and discharge plan. The plan includes recommendations for aftercare, follow up and community resources.
