Behavioral Health:
Outpatient Services for Adult and Youth

Behavioral Health Outpatient Services for both Adult and Youth customers are facilitated toward improving the client’s daily functioning life skills. Clinical Services may be arranged by contacting any Family Counseling Center office for an appointment.

Serving Southern Illinois 24 hours a day, each day of the year!

There is normally no waiting list for services and appointments are usually scheduled within one to two days.

Substance abuse services are also provided in an effort to decrease or eliminate the negative effects of alcohol and drug use on the client, the family and the community.
The center provides outreach services in the client’s home, at school, or at other appropriate locations. The location of services is mutually determined by the clients and FCC staff.

Initially, an assessment is made of the client’s service needs and the client is assigned a case coordinator, who is responsible for development and oversight of an Individual Service Plan.

Fees for most services are assessed based on a sliding fee schedule. Fees are set at the time of the initial appointment.

The privacy of clients is of primary concern to the Family Counseling Center. No information is released without written consent of the client. All staff members must abide by a code of ethics regarding client confidentiality.

FCC provides informational/educational programs to civic groups, schools, or businesses free of charge on topics related to prevention of mental disabilities and substance abuse.
