Drop-in Intake and Assessment
Welcoming and getting you started
We are your first point of contact at LCS Northwest whether you have been referred to us or if you have come in yourself seeking professional behavioral health assistance. We will start you on the path to recovery and a better life. We make sure you are enrolled in the correct programs to meet your needs. We have dual credentialed clinicians who will give professional opinions and will work to understand “where you’re at” in life.
Please call our office in Klamath Falls at 541-883-3471 to find out when you can drop-in to work with our intake team, or you can schedule an intake appointment with us.
Our current Drop-in Intake times are:
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 1:30 p.m.
Adolescent (school age): Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m.
Wednesdays: 9 a.m.
Drop-In Intake is done on a first-come first-serve basis. Waiting times range from 15 minutes to more than an hour. If we do not have enough clinicians for all patients, we will schedule an assessment time for you at a later date. A full assessment and intake process takes anywhere from one to three hours, depending on client needs.
If you are unable to come during our drop-in times, you are welcome to stop by our office during business hours to get the intake paperwork. We will schedule an appointment for a future assessment time.
There is a fee for the assessment, and the cost will depend on the insurance coverage you have, and type of assessment needed. We accept the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), and offer a sliding fee scale based on income, as well as a “best cash price.” If you are not an OHP client, please remember to bring your private insurance card or household income information to your intake appointment. We also have several OHP Community Partners on staff that can help apply you and/or your family apply for OHP.
