Outpatient Services

About Adult Outpatient Services:

The South Central Alabama Mental Health Center (SCAMHC) has an Outpatient program in each of our four counties.  Adult Outpatient is considered the least restrictive treatment setting that SCAMHC has to offer.  In order to meet the needs of those presenting for outpatient counseling services, SCAMHC has moved to a group counseling modality utilizing short-term or as needed individual therapy/counseling. 

Individuals may request services in the county in which they reside or can choose to seek services in any county that they wish. Transportation is not provided.

Services Offered:

  • Intake
  • Individualized treatment planning/goal setting
  • Basic living skills training
  • Medication monitoring and administration
  • Physician/medical assessments
  • Individual and Group Therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Family support
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Referrals for programs offering a higher level of care, including In-Home treatment, Case Management, Day Rehabilitation, and Residential Care


We accept most insurance, so please have your insurance information available when you call to schedule an appointment.  The access worker can then schedule you with the appropriate clinician. For those that do not have insurance, we do have financial aid available, but on a limited basis.  To find out if you qualify for financial aid, contact your local office.
