A Comprehensive Clinical Assessment is an intensive clinical and functional face-to-face evaluation of a recipient’s mental health, developmental disability, or substance abuse condition that results in the creation of a diagnostic report consisting of a diagnosis, a recommendation of target population, and includes an order for services that provides the basis for the development of a Person Centered Plan.

Individual Therapy involves one-to-one meetings with a therapist. Within the context of a cooperative partnership, a working relationship between the therapist and client allows goals to be developed and solutions to be generated. There is typically a focus on particular problems or stressors. Individual therapy helps someone to look more objectively at feelings, thoughts and behaviors.
Family therapy is a form of intervention that includes all or most of the immediate family in the treatment process. Family therapy is based on the understanding that working with someone’s environment and social context is critical for change. For children, the primary social context is the family. Family therapists view the family as a unit in itself and not merely as a collection of individuals. Family therapy focuses on family dynamics and interactions, with goals centered on adjusting those patterns to promote positive and healthy functioning.
Substance Abuse Services
Substance abuse refers to the overindulgence in and/or dependence on a stimulant, depressant, chemical substance, herb (plant) or fungus leading to effects that are detrimental to the individual's physical health, mental health, or the welfare of others. The disorder is characterized by a pattern of continued pathological use that results in repeated adverse social consequences related to drug use, such as failure to meet work, family, or school obligations, interpersonal conflicts, or legal problems. Substance abuse is sometimes used as a synonym for drug abuse, drug addiction, and chemical dependency.
Each initial medication evaluation starts with an approximate one hour consultation so that a full history can be obtained and necessary lab tests ordered. Only after a thorough review of all of the data will a collaborative plan be developed. We believe that the person served should be fully aware of his or her diagnoses and have a clear understanding of each medication prescribed and their side effect profile. It is not our intention to always turn to medications as a solution not symptom management but to provide a broad view of every disorder but to provide a broad view of every disorder but to provide a broad view of every disorder.
Marriage & Family Therapy
A family's patterns of behavior influences the individual and therefore may need to be a part of the treatment plan. In marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't just the individual. It is the set of relationships the individual has i.e. the whole family.
