Open Access to Care program
For individuals seeking mental health care, every moment counts. Since we know the wait for mental health treatment can have devastating affects on a person in need, AAMH Open Access to Care provides immediate care when its needed. All you need to do is walk into our center between the hours 8.am and 2.00pm, Monday to Friday, and a Master's level mental health clinician will be able to provide a psychosocial evaluation. A personalized, confidential plan for treatment will be developed and begin that moment. Since 2009, there has never been a wait for treatment at AAMH.
Partial Care Program
Partial Care is a wellness-based, day-treatment program that provides an integrated approach to mental health and substance abuse care. With the help of their personal counselor, clients develop their own individualized recovery plan based on their values and goals, including returning to work or school. Families are encouraged to be part of the planning process. Clients can chose to participate in a variety of groups, which includes addiction, depression/anxiety support, IMR, socialization, vocational and health & wellness. Board certified psychiatrists and Psychiatric Advanced Practice Nurses provide psychiatric evaluation, medication monitoring and psychiatric consultation. Breakfast and lunch is available daily. Walk in, same day immediate entry into the program. Transportation services are available.
Child and Adult Outpatient Services
