About Clark County E&T

The Clark County Telecare Evaluation and Treatment Center is a 11-bed facility, providing both voluntary and involuntary inpatient evaluation and treatment to individuals who are experiencing acute psychiatric distress. These individuals may also need acute detoxification from substances. The program's goal is to support people in stabilizing their symptoms so that they may quickly return home to the community. Most people will stay at CCT between
3-7 days.

Recovery Model

This program follows Telecare’s Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS), an innovative recovery framework that incorporates the latest research and evidence-based practices. RCCS emphasizes doing no harm and supporting and enlivening recovery. The recovery model incorporates such approaches as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), harm reduction, and other consumer-centered
therapeutic interventions.

Services and Supports

Services are delivered by a multidisciplinary, culturally-competent staff and will include a broad array of medical, mental health and recovery-centered supports:

  • Risk-focused assessments, covering mental health and substance abuse
  • Psychiatric assessment and treatment
  • Medication administration and management
  • Medically monitored detoxification
  • Family and support system engagement
  • Peer support and community group meetings
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Individualized treatment plans, which also focus on the process of awakening hope and enlivening the recovery journey

Furthermore, clients have access to a Transitional Case Management Team at the E&T. The program is the first of its kind to operate out of an acute evaluation and treatment center. Its primary purpose is to meet state requirements and ensure that clients are connected to community services within seven days of acute and are seen by a prescriber within 30 days.
