Our Care staff conducts health screenings for a number of our programs and take place right at the first touch point with our clients through our initial intake process.
Conducting health screenings allows us to understand our clients' needs and conditions prior to providing them with our services or creating a treatment plan. While implementing our trauma-informed care approach, BAC’s Care staff offers health screenings for a number of our programs and services in all departments.
Any client that steps through our doors or interacts with our care staff will receive a trauma screening to determine factors that may be impacting their mental state. These determinants will help our providers prioritize our clients’ safety and comfort, as well as match them with the most beneficial resources within BAC.
