General Appointment Information

How do I access services at Mid-Columbia Center for Living?
If you are seeking services for intellectual/ developmental disabilities (DD), mental health (MH) and/or substance use disorders (SUD) you can always reach out to our Referral Coordinators for information and support in getting enrolled.

  • If you are an adult seeking mental health or substance use you can also simply walk in without an appointment to be assessed (listed below) during our Open Access times. This enables you to access services without an appointment, on a first come first service basis. After the initial assessment is completed you will be able to engage and schedule all future appointments with the clinician you saw for the assessment. Our hope is to better support our community in connecting with treatment when it’s needed most.
  • If you speak Spanish, all services will need to be scheduled through our Referral Coordinators for both MH and SUD services.
  • If you are a youth or seeking services for one, all services will need to be scheduled through our Referral Coordinator for both MH and SUD services.
  • If you are making a referral for services, we will continue to keep the referent up to date on all the referrals received in our offices, in a timely manner. To help us be able to communicate with you, please have clients complete a Release of Information and send to us at your earliest convenience.
