No. We do follow a short-term model where the counselor and student set measurable goals to be achieved within a reasonable time span, which is typically 4-5 sessions per student.

Yes. The student would complete paperwork authorizing the sharing information.

Not at all. While many of the students we serve have diagnosable problems, we see students for decision-making, relationship conflicts, grief, self-understanding, and other normal developmental needs.

We do not contract with a consulting psychiatrist at this time. Like most of America, Rome has a shortage of psychiatric hours available. As needed, we assist students on referrals and on ways to consult with medical professionals for psychotropic medication locally or in their home communities.

We cannot guarantee immediate contact due to the student's right to refuse that, but in the vast majority of cases, they consent to contact with parents while decisions are being made about their safety and care. We want the family in the loop quickly, and we make sure students understand the advantages of contacting parents.

Call 706.236.2259 if you have additional questions and would like to discuss with a provider.
