ACGC offers a weekly Walk-In Clinic to serve families with immediate needs. Research has shown that one hour of counseling can help many people to get started in a new direction. Walk-in counseling allows that to happen at a moment in time that best fits the needs of the family.
What We Do
Children up to the age of 17 as well as other family members can be seen without having to wait for an appointment.
Parents can be seen without their child to consult about problem behavior, seek advice or get direction. Family members can for be seen for one walk-in session or return for more, although they may not be seen by the same therapist in subsequent walk-in sessions.
For quality and training purposes, sessions may be observed by ACGC therapists and staff. In those instances, parents and children will benefit from input from several professionals. For additional information, please call (512) 451-2242.
Please note that walk-in services do not provide access to medications, psychiatric emergency services or follow-up psychiatric care. Individuals who are an immediate threat to themselves or others should be sent to the nearest psychiatric emergency room (PES 512- 472-4357 or Shoal Creek 512-324-2029) or call 911. Children who are a safety risk may be referred to a nearby hospital to be assessed for their safety. ACGC will not write a letter for schools regarding your child’s safety or suitability to return to school.
Children up to the age of 17; and parents (with or without their child).
