Also provided are Mental Health services. Referrals are made to area providers. Standard conditions for Mental Health referrals include: Psychological assessments, determination and severity of illness, Crisis intervention, outpatient counseling with a Mental Health professional, if needed.

 

The CD/MH Program also has a large selection of topics in its Educational Library. The collection of videos, DVD's and books provide information on: alcohol, drugs, Women's recovery, Men's recovery, Teen alcohol & drug abuse, teen smoking, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, 12 & 12 Step books, both men & women's meditation books and various pamphlets available.
