Adult Clinical Services programs provide consumers a single point of entry to the agency, crisis response and assessment, case management, and therapeutic services designed for specific populations meeting our admission criteria. Persons with mental disabilities can receive a comprehensive assessment to determine their mental health, intellectual disability, and/or substance use services needs, and be referred to the services which best meet those needs. Services are designed to aid consumers in achieving their highest possible level of functioning.
