Assessments

We understand an assessment may cause anxious feelings, however we would like to commend you on taking the first step! Nearly everyone is faced with challenges that seem overwhelming at some time in their lives and completing an assessment to address demonstrates great personal strength.

To aid in understanding the process, some common questions and hints are included below.

On average, an assessment appointment will last between 1-2 hours. An assessment consists of completion of necessary paperwork as well as discussion regarding events and background information leading to completion of your assessment. The counselor will ask you some questions to better understand your concerns and discuss with you available options.

As with all services conducted with ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services, the information you share is confidential and is not released unless you sign a release of information permitting disclosure or if law requires disclosure.

If you are completing an assessment as recommended by an external source, such as DHS, probation officer, court system, etc, it is recommended to bring any paperwork you have received from them with you to your appointment. Some individuals find it helpful to write down a list of questions, concerns, notes and/or records to help remember and describe the situation.

At the time of your assessment, drug testing may be requested.

You are welcome to include family members or other supportive individuals with you to your assessment appointment.

Payment is requested at time of assessment. For further information, please see “Fees for Services”.

EMDR

Our organization provides individuals with certified mental health professional in providing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.

EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Staff are here to help you recover-contact us at 712-243-2606 to schedule an appointment.

Prevention

Our goal is to help provide individuals of all ages, families, and community groups make healthy choices, which will reduce the likelihood of problems associated with alcohol, tobacco, other drug use and destructive decisions. Prevention can only be accomplished through continuous and dedicated programs directed at all age levels. By working together, we strengthen our community and our commitment for a bright future.

Communities know that a positive attitude advocating the need for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention is the key ingredient for success. ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services is actively involved in workplace consultation, and coalition building. Our focus is on presenting current, factual information, which empowers communities to strengthen environments that allow people to achieve their potential and contribute positively to society.

Schools look to us to provide positive, research-based presentations, programs, and training on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and abuse prevention. Students from pre-school through high school participate in age-appropriate, fun, and non-threatening programs that reinforce the benefits of making healthy choices. They need to be taught the skills to create healthy relationships and how to take an active part in their community. They need a clear set of norms about non-use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
