Adult Clinic-Based Services


Program Description

The Purpose of the Adult Clinic Based Services Program at PCMHS is to provide clinical assessment and treatment services for individuals and families who are experiencing a disruption in their normal level of functioning due to mental illness, mental illness and chemical dependency or emotional distress.   

Clinic Based Services are available 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at our Clinic offices in Greer and Simpsonville.  Other times are available on an as-needed basis.  After-hours emergencies are managed by the designated on-call staff and can be reached by calling Crisis Line.   

The Clinic Based Services Program provides an initial screening and assessment to anyone over the age of eighteen seeking mental health services.  Continued treatment is determined by the preferences and needs identified through the initial clinical assessment.  Persons eligible for continued treatment must have an Axis I diagnosis and be able to benefit from this level of service.
