Crisis Intervention Services Contract

Shawnee is pleased to announce that the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental health Services Board of Adams, Lawrence and Scioto Counties has awarded us the contract to provide after-hours and during business hours crisis intervention services for our three counties. Since we were already certified by the Ohio Mental Health and Addictions Services Department , there will be no disruption in this service for the agencies and clients needing it. John Bowman will serve as the clinical supervisor of this service and Shawnee will contract with qualified mental health professionals as needed to ensure crisis coverage for each of the three counties that we serve. We are now the state psychiatric hospital authorized screening agency; therefore, anyone needing admitted to Appalachian Behavioral Health Hospital will need to be assessed by a mental health professional from Shawnee Family Health Center.

Shawnee historically provided this service in our region for over 35 years until 2012. We are excited to resume this service for our communities and look forward to collaborating with local hospitals, courts and other agencies to ensure that those needing crisis intervention receive the service in a timely and professional manner.
