We will determine what type of screening best meets your needs, face-to-face or over the phone. While not mandatory, OCHN prefers face-to-face screenings for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. All other access screenings, including adults with a mental illness and children with a serious emotional disturbance, can take place over the telephone.
Again, SUD screenings are scheduled as soon as possible and upon contact. If an individual is having difficulty getting to the RCC for a face-to-face meeting, than a phone screening can be provided.
Once individuals are connected to an access and referral specialist, an appointment will be scheduled to meet with a screener. Information about the necessary paperwork to complete this process will be provided at this time.
