Primary Care, Psychiatry and Clinic Based Services

Our clinics offers a range of services to support the mental and physical health of individuals in need. These services are designed to provide quick and efficient access to care, as well as crisis stabilization support for those who are at high risk.

Primary Care

Primary Care services are comprised of board-certified physicians, advanced practice nurses (APRNs), nurses, and medical assistants. Primary Care is comprehensive care that includes services like routine wellness visits, sick visits, immunizations, preventative care, health screenings, lab work, and treatment for chronic illnesses and conditions for patients of all ages. This medical team works collaboratively with other A&C teams to provide integrated care, focusing on the connections between mental health and physical health and how to comprehensively provide treatment to all presenting concerns.

A&C has four primary care clinics located throughout Marion and Johnson Counties. 

Psychiatry and Medication Assisted Treatment

Psychiatry services are offered by our board-certified psychiatrists, advanced practice nurses (APRNs), nurses, and medical assistants. The psychiatrists, APRNs, and psychologists collaborate to ensure that client care is effective, seamless, and meets the treatment goals that clients identify. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with behavioral therapies and interventions, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. The team forms a partnership with clients and patients to identify a medication plan that meets identified goals for both mental and physical well being. These medications are FDA approved.

Access and Crisis Stabilization

The Access team uses a blend of an open access model and scheduled appointments for more high-risk clients and patients to allow for same day scheduling and quicker access to services. This team consists of licensed mental health professionals who will complete a full biopsychosocial assessment to determine the best treatment options for the individual. The first contact will be with our Access screeners who will begin gathering the information about your individual needs and background so that they can identify the best clinician and appointment timeframe to get the help needed as quickly as possible. If A&C is not the appropriate agency then we will provide referral information to other agencies that might best suit individual needs.

Safety is Our Top Priority

If an individual needs further assistance, a crisis therapist will work to further identify how we can assist in making sure that an individual is safe and has the resources needed until treatment is started, as well as during treatment.
