Empowering Individuals, Promoting Healthy Communities

Outpatient Emergency Services

Because mental illness so often goes untreated, it's important to make services easily available and seize every opportunity to start a person on the road to recovery. Our outpatient services provide hundreds of hours of individual, family and group therapy.

NCCMHC's Outpatient Services Department treats individuals suffering psychological stress and related symptoms in their lives.  The clinicians and staff assist clients with managing anxiety, depression, obsessions, compulsions and post-traumatic stress disorders.

Our Outpatient Substance Use Program provides outpatient substance use and co-occurring substance use and mental health counseling services.  We work with CODAC, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation provider to augment our own substance use treatment program.

Our Child & Adolescent Outpatient therapists serve children who may be experiencing any of the following: emotional or behavioral struggles, ADD & school performance issues, risk for hospitalization, at risk for out of home placement and juvenile justice issues.  We specialize in evidence-based treatments for children and adolescents who have undergone a traumatic experience.  All adolescents and young adults are screened for alcohol and substance use when receiving services.

Our Emergency Services Department maintains the agency's Open Access Walk-in Assessment Services Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at our 127 Johnny Cake Hill Road site and provide emergency crisis services 24-hours a day/7-days per week.

Our outpatient staff provide same day counseling for a wide range of mental health needs.

We work closely with Newport Hospital in an on-call arrangement to provide emergency assessment and crisis stabilization for acutely at-risk patients in their emergency room experiencing a mental health crisis.  We also work closely with police and fire  departments and others in the community helping people in psychiatric crisis.  In addition, we work with law enforcement and the courts to help offenders needing treatment to obtain such treatment, which has been shown to reduce recidivism.
