Assessments and Medication Evaluations
Before any service is started, you must have an intake evaluation to determine the nature and severity of your behavioral and emotional difficulties. Community Connections Healthcare Services (CCHS) can provide this service in the home or office.
This evaluation often results in a mental health or substance abuse diagnosis. Depending on the results of this evaluation, your insurance company will authorize certain mental health services with the goal of improving the child or adult’s behavior and emotional state. While receiving services from our agency, a re-assessment may be necessary if new issues begin to develop or a crisis situation arises.
If you are in need of psychological testing and/or medication evaluation, your Qualified Professional or Therapist can refer you to our on-staff Psychologist or Psychiatrist. These services are provided in an office setting.
Outpatient Therapy and Outpatient Services
CCHS specializes in individual and family therapy (counseling) done at home or in the office for children and adults experiencing behavioral problems in school, at home, and in work settings.
Individual and family therapy services are provided for children and adults by a professional who has both a Master’s Degree in Counseling, Social Work, or Psychology; and a State License. Therapy sessions usually occur once a week for one hour and can last up to two hours if needed. Therapy can assist clients in gaining insight into the root cause of behavioral and/or emotional difficulties. It can also help in developing solutions for these difficulties, with the goal of ultimately changing behavior.
Many clients and families find that therapy can reduce their stress levels as they learn to talk through and resolve their issues.
