In addition, screenings for the following will occur:

Substance abuse screening

Upon completion of assessment, clients may receive:

• Persistent mental health concerns
• Mental health diagnosis 
• Service plan with treatment goals and treatment modalities
• Recommendations for level of care 

Clients seeking assessment can usually be seen within a week, although during busy times it may take longer due to high demand. The Child Center intake team will work with families to schedule assessments that accommodate their circumstances and level of urgency. In some cases, assessments can be scheduled after normal working hours, and possibly on the same day if there is a crisis level of urgency.
