Established in 1971 and based in Pierce City, Missouri, Clark Community Mental Health Center serves southwest Missouri. This behavioral health services provider has two locations in Monett, a small town between Springfield and Joplin. The facility provides substance abuse care to residents of Dade, Barry and Lawrence County and serves as an extension of the Missouri Department of Mental Health. A CARF-accredited non-profit, CCMHC offers an outpatient program with a dual-diagnosis component for adults, families, children and adolescents.
Treatment and Staff
Serving a mix of court appointed and self-referred clients, CCMHC offers basic outpatient treatment consisting of weekly group and individual therapy sessions. Groups are held four times a week and though clients are permitted to attend all four, this is not technically considered an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Those in the program can also expect up to one individual therapy session a week; all sessions are led by LADCs. Therapy is CBT-oriented with special sessions devoted to relapse prevention, identifying triggers, anger management and relationship issues. While the size of these groups may vary, they are generally kept small with no more than 12 clients at a time. Twelve step recovery is not incorporated at the facility, though clients can receive information about local AA/NA meetings upon request.
CCMHC provides dual-diagnosis care by addressing co-occurring disorders in group and individual therapy. As there is no psychiatrist on staff, neither medication management nor detox are provided. However, the facility can refer clients in need of these services to accommodating practitioners. Lengths of stay vary based on each person’s needs. Though there is no official aftercare offered at the facility, clients are still able to slowly step down the frequency of their treatment. The staff consists primarily of addiction counselors who are also certified to provide therapy for mental health issues.
Though CCMHC does not offer a family program, group and individual therapy sessions for children and adolescents are also available.
In addition to their outpatient program, CCMHC also offers a Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program (SATOP), which allows DWI offenders to reinstate their driving privileges. This program can take many forms depending on the level of infraction and includes an Offender Management Unit (OMU), Offender Education Program (OEP), Weekend Intervention Program (WIP) and Clinical Intervention Program (CIP).
With a long history of working with the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Clark Community Mental Health Center is a well-established behavioral health services organization. Clients can expect a solid outpatient program with support for co-occurring disorders. In all, Clark Community Mental Health Center is worth considering for those in the area.
