These programs available to both children and adults, help you and support you in connecting to the resources and services that you may need in order to meet your mental health, medical and health care needs. Together with your case manager, you determine what your needs are and develop a plan of action to get those needs met.
There are times that anyone could use a little help. Whether you or a family member are struggling with relationship or family transitions, or learning how to manage depression or anxiety, Evergreen clinicians are here to help you. Our outpatient team is experienced in acute and chronic mental health issues. Goals of mental health counseling are to assist you in achieving stability.
Services begin with an assessment to determine the appropriate level of care. Once this assessment has been completed, recommendations for treatment are discussed with you. You may be referred for: Individual Counseling or Intensive Outpatient Programming. Our goal is to work with you to develop skills and strategies that will enable you to achieve and maintain a healthy drug-free lifestyle.
Evergreen Behavioral Services is a contracted provider for DEEP. Once your paperwork has been received by this office, we will call you to schedule an appointment. Evaluations consist of 2-4 sessions and often include a family member. Treatment consists of 6-12 sessions (or more).
For those times when help is needed immediately, Evergreen has qualified crisis providers who will meet with you to help you through the situation. Location of the meeting is determined based on many factors, safety being of utmost importance. Once the initial crisis has been resolved, crisis staff can offer up to 5 stabilization sessions to provide ongoing support for 30 days.
