- Substance Use Treatment
A Substance Use assessment is completed using standardized testing methods. This assessment is completed in a face to face interview between the client and a counselor. Based on the confidential results, the counselor will make recommendations, and then work with the client to develop a client centered treatment plan utilizing a combination of individual, group, and/or family counseling as well as educational groups. TASC does not provide detox treatment, but can assist with referral to a detox facility as well as residential treatment. TASC is dedicated to working with the client to form long-term, lasting solutions.
- Mental Health Treatment
A Mental Health assessment is completed using standardized testing methods. This assessment is completed in a face to face interview between the client and counselor. Based on these confidential results, the counselor will work with the client to develop a client centered treatment plan which may include individual, group, and/or family counseling. TASC does not provide medication management, but will assist the client through advocacy with their primary care physician. The counselors at TASC are dedicated to working with clients and families to assist in finding lasting, holistic health.
- Co-Occurring Treatment Services
Frequently, substance use and mental health issues (such as depression and anxiety) are intertwined. When both occur in the same person, this is referred to as a co-occurring disorder. As TASC provides both substance use and mental health treatment, we are qualified to address co-occurring disorders.
- Youth Services
TASC provides both substance use and mental health treatment for the children and adolescents of Osage County. Mental Health treatment is available for children as young as age 3. Our counselors work with Osage Nation Head Start and Immersion schools as well as the public schools in the area. Following the assessment, which is completed with the parent or guardian, most TASC services can be provided at the schools for parental convenience.
- Substance Use treatment is available for adolescents ages 12 and up. Parental involvement is encouraged in both. Our services are recognized by DHS, Osage Nation ICW, and OJA.
- Drug Court
TASC contracts with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) to provide the treatment portion of the Osage County Drug Court program.
