Assignment to a Counselor or Group

LSCI will not refuse services to any client, unless based on the primary diagnosis, services are not available within the program to adequately meet the recipient’s mental health needs. We will attempt to match you with the treatment which will best meet your needs following a review of the request for service. Counselor assignments will be made with consideration of the best resources to fit your needs and the availability of counselors. Your assigned counselor will contact you to arrange an appointment and discuss the availability of group services if indicated as necessary to the clinical process. When an immediate individual counseling assignment or group assignment is not available you will be offered referrals to providers in the community to expedite the process of being seen.
