This service assists in developing or refining techniques to address the issues that can trigger the behaviors. Clinicians offering this service provide training and assistance to families and/or staff on crisis intervention strategies.
Sandhills Center is committed to investing resources into services to meet the needs of the local community. As additional rate adjustments are made possible, announcements will be made to the provider network.
