About Central Clinic

Successfully promoting lasting change for those we serve

hope starts here

Central Clinic Behavioral Health successfully promotes lasting change for those served. We believe that measuring the impact of services is vital in order to learn, grow and ultimately meet the needs of the community. We consistently measure the outcomes of the persons we serve and analyze our processes. Our outcomes clearly reflect the improvement we observe daily. Our outcome and performance improvement initiatives are directed toward four critical, functional areas of the agency: effectiveness of services, satisfaction of our clients, stakeholders, and personnel; accessibility of services to all; and efficiency of our processes. Examples of our most recent outcomes in these categories are listed below:

Effectiveness

Clients receiving clinical care within Adult Services, CDC Behavioral Health and Court Clinic Treatment improved their overall functioning as measured by the Daily Living Activities Scale (DLA-20 (c). After 12 months of treatment 52% of adult clients achieved significant improvement.

Satisfaction

98% of clients report that they are satisfied with personnel at Central Clinic Behavioral Health helping them to improve their lives. Ninety-eight percent of clients are satisfied with Central Clinic Behavioral Health staff respectful of my race, ethnicity, religion, and/or sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

Accessibility

The Child and Family Treatment Center diagnostically assessed 450 children/youth in the last year – almost 20% of those clients were able to walk in and be assessed without an appointment. Family Access to Integrated Recovery (FAIR) assessed 1,055 clients and 659 (63%) of those were able to walk in and be assessed without an appointment.

Efficiency

In the last fiscal year, 17,884 clients were served by Central Clinic Behavioral Health; over 406,000 hours of work providing clinical, preventative, administrative support, advocacy, collaboration, and care coordination services were provided by 278 personnel, within our 24 programs.
