Outpatient Services provides outpatient therapy for children, adults, and families. The goal of Outpatient Services is to increase the level of an individual's functioning and well being and consequently reduce the individual's need for more intensive services. This is primarily done on an individual/family basis, although therapy is occasionally conducted in groups. Most people refer themselves or their children for service. However, we also accept referrals from other sources including hospitals, doctors, schools, and court-ordered clients.
Outpatient Services also provides evaluations and medication management through a staff psychiatrist and staff nurse.
