Anne Arundel County Department of Health’s Adolescent and Family Services (AFS) provides outpatient mental health and addiction services to County children and adolescents, ages 4 to 18, and their families.
Mental health services are offered by a team of psychiatrists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Clinical Professional counselors who evaluate children and adolescents experiencing emotional, behavioral and developmental problems. Diagnostic evaluations, medication monitoring, and individual, family and group therapy are available. All Department of Health clinicians are trauma trained and certified. Services are offered to children and adolescents who have Medical Assistance or who are eligible for Medical Assistance.
Recognizing that substance use and mental health concerns are often co-occurring, the AFS staff works with patients and their families to create holistic treatment plans that address their challenges related to substance abuse within the larger context of their lives. The staff provides information and services, including individual and family therapy, drug and alcohol assessments and urine screening. If a patient requires a higher level of care, appropriate referrals are made. Services are available to youth who have Medical Assistance or who are eligible for Medical Assistance. For families with private insurance seeking assessments only, fees are determined on a sliding scale based on the family income.
