A basic questionnaire and needs survey is completed either in person or via the telephone. This includes general geographic information and informal information about the services you are requesting, as well as any immediate needs you may have. This will also help us determine what criteria you meet for services
After an initial screening, a comprehensive assessment, which includes a bio-psychosocial is completed. This is a formal process by which a clinician will discuss your strengths, needs, abilities and preferences, and come to an agreement with you about your intent for services.

Usually occurs during the first two to three sessions. Goals and objectives for services are agreed upon. A written plan for discharge and community referrals is also agreed upon. ”What do you want to work on?” “How will you know when it’s time to leave?”
