Same Day Access In Response To COVID-19
The CSB has implemented service modifications to continue to monitor the evolving concerns related to COVID-19. As of October 19, 2020, the Same Day ACCESS (SDA) program will transition back to same day assessment services via telehealth in order to accommodate to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Individuals will be screened and, if appropriate, will be scheduled for an assessment on the same day (if capacity has not been reached). Assessments will be done via telehealth, in person, or by phone depending on the client need. Once capacity is reached for the day, individuals will need to call the following day.
Calls for individuals seeking to start services through Same Day ACCESS will be accepted Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. To schedule a same day access appointment, contact the ACCESS staff at:
