Central Counties Services participates in federal behavioral health study
Central Counties Services was the only behavioral health center in the state of Texas chosen by Mathematica Policy Research to participate in a biometric screening health fair to facilitate collection of comprehensive and complex biometric and survey information within behavioral and drug addiction centers throughout the United States.
The information collected was provided to the Mathematica team in order to help evaluate the Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration program for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Part of the evaluation involves comparing the health outcomes of patients served in the Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration clinics with the health outcomes of patients served in other community mental health centers.
The screening lasted four days and took place in Temple and Killeen.
