We specialize in serving Benton County residents with major mental illness and Oregon Health Plan. We also serve eligible uninsured individuals with some types of private insurance. Reduced fees are available based on income levels and eligibility. For individuals interested in an assessment to determine eligibility, please call 541-766-6835. If eligible, you will receive a same day appointment.
We assist families, friends, or agencies in determining whether a person meets the legal criteria for involuntary commitment and treatment. Persons who meet the criteria are those who have a mental disorder, are unwilling to seek voluntary treatment and, as a result of their mental disorder, are dangerous to themselves or others, or are unable to provide their own basic needs.
We will provide:
- Consultation to relatives, friends, the community, social service agencies, and law enforcement regarding involuntary commitment.
- Hospital screening and crisis intervention 24 hours a day at clinics or hospital emergency rooms.
- Information regarding alternatives to commitment
- Liaison to the court and Benton County psychiatric units
