Adult Treatment Services
The Lexington County Community Mental Health Center adult treatment team embraces the value that everyone experiences and is impacted by mental health differently. Our goal is to understand what you need as an individual to reach recovery and improve your quality of life. Our team understands that recovery is possible and there is reason to have hope in seeking services.
We are committed to services that promote the individual’s quality of life, focus on the individual’s strengths, foster independence and honor the rights, wishes and needs of the individual and his/her family. The person served engages in an active partnership with our staff in the treatment planning process. Services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual, taking into consideration their strengths, needs, abilities, cultural background, and preferences.
After you complete our initial screening, we will recommend treatment services through the following programs:
- Lexington Adult Clinic: Centrally located in Lexington, this clinic provides a variety of services to include individual, group, and family psychotherapy with a trained therapist, psychiatric medical assessments with a Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner, supportive nursing services, crisis interventions, and care coordination. Services are individually tailored to meet the recovery goals and needs of each individual.
- Gaston Clinic: Located in the rural area of Gaston, this smaller clinic still provides all of the services available at our Lexington Clinic and is much more conveniently accessible to the residents of Gaston, Swansea, Pelion, and West Columbia.
- Batesburg-Leesville Clinic: In the heart of Batesburg-Leesville area, this clinic aims to serve the residents of this rural community by providing the same array of services offered in our Lexington Clinic.
- New Alternatives Peer Support Program: Certified Peer Support Specialists draw on their own recovery stories, training/education, and experiences in living with a mental health condition to help individuals who are struggling with a chronic persistent mental illness. Our Peer Support staff provide a variety of supportive groups and individual sessions to help individuals to reach their recovery goals.
- Intensive Community Treatment (ICT): This more intensive program focuses on helping individuals who are experiencing the most acute symptoms related to a severe and persistent mental illness. Services are most often provided in the community and utilize intensive treatment services to improve psychiatric instability for individuals who are higher risk for safety issues, homelessness, hospitalization/ER visits, and incarcerations.
- Youth In Transition Services: As many severe and persistent mental illnesses tend to onset as individuals transition into adulthood, this program focuses on the special population of young adults in our community. Our staff are specially trained to assess young adults for early symptoms and signs of a mental illness which can often be inconsistent and difficult to identify. Early treatment intervention in cases of on-setting psychosis can significantly improve a person's prognosis for long term stability and recovery.
- Community Rehabilitative Services: These intensive services focus on helping individuals who have a severe and persistent mental health condition. These programs provide intensive services including longer term residential supports when medically indicated to assist individuals with their recovery goals.
