Our Mental Health Facility opened June of this year!
We are now capable of providing mental health counseling for our inpatient and outpatient clients. Mental health disorders and substance use disorders frequently occur together. Disorders such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, and Bipolar disorder are just a few disorders that may be present at the same time as a substance use disorder, making it very difficult for an individual to succeed in their recovery.
When there is a dual diagnosis of both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, it is important that the individual receive treatment that addresses both problems at the same time. The untreated symptoms of a mental health disorder can cause the patient to be unable to remain clean and sober, and untreated substance abuse issues can make mental health treatment ineffective.
Our new mental health facility is staffed with two licensed professional counselors to provide assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for mental health disorders. We are currently capable of providing treatment for inpatient and outpatient clients. We are accepting Medicaid and self-pay currently and are working toward contracting with major insurance companies.
