CD Adult Evaluation department
The department consists of 3 full time SUD evaluators, one full time gambling counselor, and a supervisor. The department is tasked with performing scheduled SUD assessments from the community and as needed on the inpatient medical and psychiatric units. We see patients 18 or older of all socioeconomic classes, of all gender orientations or cultural backgrounds. Other duties include doing updated SUD evaluations for patients admitting to Lodging Plus and reviewing SUD evaluations from outside referrals for Lodging Plus. One of the evaluators with an MSW also conducts Medicare assessments for our Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients, supervises other staff seeking their LPCC and will soon begin doing 1 to 1 mental health sessions for patients on the LP.
The Gambling Program Counselor II, working in conjunction with the treatment team and under the direction of the Clinical Systems Supervisor, Lead Counselor, and/or Charge Nurse, is responsible for the therapeutic implementation of the chemical dependency treatment program for clients. This includes planning, coordinating, and delivering chemical dependency counseling services and developing relationships with family members and concerned persons.
