Screening and Assessment
Screening and assessment services should be comprehensive. They should not only identify the extent to which an individual is in need of substance abuse specialty services but the degree to which other services might also be needed.
The purpose of initial screening and assessment is to identify client needs so that arrangements can be made for early access to ongoing care. McKinley Hall’s substance abuse assessment services also involve screening for coexisting mental health disorders and untreated physical health problems.
McKinley Hall initiates referrals to other health-care facilities for mental and physical health problems when care is not available at McKinley Hall. Initial visits to McKinley Hall also include screening and identification of needs for other social services. Every patient has their own therapist and case manager.
Service hours vary, based on individual need. Outpatient programming is as intensive as 15 hours per week, 3 hours a day, down to 1 hour per month in Aftercare.
McKinley Hall offers residential treatment, medication-assisted treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, and morning and evening outpatient services to meet the demands of the personal lives of people we serve. One of our priorities is to make sure that treatment is not a disruption, but instead a seamless addition to everyday lifestyles.
McKinley Hall offers all women gender specific treatment services with a trauma informed care approach. A full continuum of services to meet the needs of Clark County residents who are seeking help for a substance use disorder. Additional services are provided for children in the care of their mothers.
One of the many advances in medicine includes medication for those struggling opiate use disorders. McKinley Hall has been providing medication-assisted treatment since 2005. We offer ambulatory withdrawal management and long term MAT services.
Returning to the community after incarceration has many challenges. Felonies often hinder one’s ability to access housing and employment; essential elements that help adults feel worthy and productive. Our criminal justice program focuses on helping people transition back to the community while reducing as many barriers as possible.
