Extended Hours Appointments

At Avance Care, we’re interested in much more than the absence of illness. Our Behavioral Wellness providers will engage you in an active therapeutic process that will help you grow in self-awareness, make healthy choices, and achieve appropriate balance in your life. Avance Care therapists use a strength-based approach that helps you achieve your full potential and greatest degree of life satisfaction. We coordinate with your medical treatment team to help you draw on your capabilities and overcome the limitations imposed by illness and injury. We work with you to change negative behavioral patterns that perpetuate unhealthy habits, revise perspectives interfering with meaningful relationships, and attend to any mental or emotional concern your may have. Psychiatric services are also available through Avance Psychiatry.

What is Behavioral Wellness?

Your mind and body is all one system. Most patients see an overall improvement in their health when behavioral wellness services are added to their medical treatment plan. Our staff are available onsite at Avance Care clinics or via telehealth and work closely with your provider to coordinate a plan for your care. 

Routine Screening Services

Research demonstrates that depression and many other common psychological health conditions frequently develop along with common chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, and irritable bowel syndrome. Routine screenings for mental health conditions lead to both dramatically increased rates of correctly identifying and treating these conditions, as well as significant increases in positive outcomes from treatments directed at chronic physical illnesses. Frequent and robust screening is an integral element of our Behavioral Wellness program. We continually review literature and update our protocols to identify which screenings will help us maximize the quality of our healthcare. These screenings are kept as brief as possible and are administered online for your convenience. You can answer the screening questions through our web-based portal prior to your appointment or through a tablet or terminal at one of our offices. Online administration and scoring allow your healthcare provider to review the results with you in a timely manner and assist in guiding treatment decisions.
