Core services begin with a registration period of 90 days that is utilized to assess the consumer’s need for care.
During the registration period, the following services are included: an assessment, psychological or psychiatric evaluation, individualized service plan and start of services with a team of counselors and family advocates. Team members are available 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency. Many of the services our families receive will be in the home or in another environment familiar to the family. Once this period of evaluation is completed, the consumer will be placed in the appropriate level of service. This may include Intensive Family Intervention services, Core Services (individual and/or family counseling, groups and behavioral management) or referred to another agency for services that PMC may not offer. Either way, the consumers’ needs will be in the forefront of suggested services.
The levels of care recommended to a consumer are determined by a multidisciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist, a nurse, licensed counselors, master level clinicians and certified addiction counselors.
PMC utilizes a variety of treatment and therapeutic services to enable consumers to learn social and psychological skills to improve their overall functioning in life. Our services include individual counseling and training, group counseling, family counseling and training, consumer community support, substance abuse education and prevention, psycho-educational groups, evaluations, assessments and referrals.
