Project Description:








Provide an overlay of mental health and substance abuse services, psychiatric services and crisis assessment to the Osceola Regional Detention Center.  Provide 2 masters level clinicians to perform assessments, crisis counseling, individual/group therapy and staff training.  Provide 5 substance abuse counselors to perform psycho educational groups and counseling.  Staff the Center with a licensed psychiatrist to provide services 2 hours weekly, and provide an on-call counselor so that there is coverage within 24 hours for a crisis assessment.
