While HSC offers scheduled assessments for Mental Health and Substance Abuse difficulties, an individual may also choose to notify staff that they would like to "walk-in" for an assessment Monday - Friday from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Individuals choosing the "walk-in" assessment option should be aware that, depending on demand for services, they may have a considerable wait time.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Users who use TTY to communicate may use the Illinois Relay Service to contact us.

What We Provide

All of us have problems at some time in our lives. Sometimes we are able to work them out on our own. At times, we need the assistance of others to help us find solutions. HSC staff use helping strategies that have been researched and proven effective to assist individuals in finding solutions to life's challenges. These solutions are offered in a professional and caring manner with a primary goal of promoting recovery and enhancing dignity. Individuals are assessed to determine the most appropriate recommendation for treatment. The final decision regarding the type of care is up to the individual.
