What to Expect
All individuals seeking treatment services will receive an initial assessment of their needs and Southwestern’s ability to serve those needs. The goals for the intake assessment include; screening for any serious, life-threatening problems; determining the need for treatment and the level of care required; evaluating for impairments which could affect further assessment/treatment; obtaining enough information to develop a preliminary diagnosis, treatment plan, and treatment goals.
The intake process consists of completing a personal information form, a short interview with one of our skilled clinical staff, completion of a mental health scan and a functional assessment.
