ACC is committed to providing comprehensive, culturally sensitive and competent outpatient behavioral health services that are cost effective, consumer-driven and represent the highest standards of the profession.  ACC’s five conveniently located outpatient clinics in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties offer quality behavioral health services. Services include:

  • Psychiatric Assessment and Consultation

  • Psychological Testing and Evaluation

  • Psychopharmacological Treatment / Medication Review

  • Case Management

  • Individual, Marital and Family Counseling

  • Crisis Intervention

  • Education and Advocacy

  • Home-Based Infant Mental Health

Over the past year the behavioral health division has expanded its services and office space to better meet the needs of the community. ACC expanded services to include Home-Based Infant Mental Health Services and an Assertive Community Treatment Team.  The Infant Mental Health Program is a Home-Based service that provides therapy and support to parents and infants that address ongoing mental health concerns, infants that suffer from low birth weight, developmental delays, emotional or behavioral problems, or a basic failure to thrive.  By providing weekly in home visits ACC staff are able to provide guidance and support as well as link families to needed community resources.

The Infant Mental Health Program Healthy Baby, Happy Home Program provides home-based services for families with children ages 0-3, including pregnant women. Service include counseling, developmental guidance, social and emotional support, advocacy, diapers, resources and referrals. This program targets parents who are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, hopeless or angry and those who have infants who are having emotional/behavioral difficulties, growth or development delays, trauma, and trouble eating or sleeping.

ACC’s Wraparound Program is a team planning process for youth of Wayne County between the ages of 7 and 17 that are involved in multiple cares of service. The program’s purpose is to help the youth and their families indentify their family needs and strengths to help the family reach their goals. Each participating family has an ACC Wraparound Facilitator that works directly with them to help develop a vision for the family’s future. ACC’s facilitators are positive, encouraging, open, honest, and work to see the success of each family. Wraparound studies have shown that there is evidence of a greater decline in behavioral symptoms, lower overall impairment, and fewer externalizing, social problems and thought problems. Studies have also shown that children involved in wraparound have missed less days of school. Overall, over the years wraparound has shown many positive outcomes.

ACC’s Recreational Program provides year round services after school and during day time summer hours at its Youth Center in Detroit to assist in guiding youth ages 9 – 17 through the everyday challenges they may face and promote healthy life choices. The program attracts and engages at-risk youth and provides a safe place to be during their free time.
