Our goal in the BHUC is to ensure continuity of care for our community members. We want to make sure that medication doses are not missed, and crises are handled in a timely manner to keep our clients active in their daily lives.
We can offer:
- Medication bridges to fill any gaps between provider appointments
- Medication psychoeducation surrounding specific medication timelines, side-effects, contraindications, etc.
- Crisis counseling for individuals who are not connected to a provider or are unable to seek assistance from their current provider in a timely manner
- Easy access for clients seeking to enroll in mental health services for the first time
- We can only see clients ages 4 and above who have Alliance Medicaid or are uninsured and reside in Durham, Johnston, Wake, or Cumberland County.
- We do not prescribe controlled substances in the BHUC. If a taper is found by our provider to be appropriate, one may be offered, but only in extenuating circumstances.
- Providers generally offer a maximum of one month’s worth of medications, and care is taken to ensure that the client can engage with an ongoing follow-up provider without a gap in medications.
- We have Spanish-speaking staff available 40 hours of our 55-hour work week. If your client speaks Spanish, please contact the BHUC to ensure our Spanish-speaking staff is present.
