Northeast Washington Alliance Counseling Services (NEWACS), a department of Stevens County Government, is a provider of behavioral health services (mental health and substance use disorders) and employment services for Stevens, Ferry, and Lincoln Counties. We provide a range outpatient and inpatient services designed from the perspective of hope, recovery, and resiliency. This perspective is based on strength-based/person-driven concepts and a “recovery and resiliency” model focusing on the provision of responsive and effective services throughout our programs. Recovery and resiliency-oriented services strive to provide opportunities for individuals to manage their behavioral health, maintain their independence, and live productive lives in the community of their choosing. As a safety-net treatment provider, we prioritize the delivery of services for individuals and families with behavioral health conditions who are at high risk, high need, and publicly funded.
NEWACS Outpatient Appointments
As of June 8th our outpatient office locations are open at 50% capacity. On June 22nd, we will be open at 75% capacity.
With the re-opening of our office, we are prioritizing face-to-face services for children, adolescents, court-order individuals, and those who have struggled to utilize tele-health to access services. For adults who have done well with tele-health services, you may continue to be seen by tele-health (video). Your Counselor or Provider will work with you to determine whether face-to-face or tele-health services works best for you. If you are uncertain whether your upcoming appoint will occur in person or by video conferencing, please call our office.
We suggest the following equipment if you would like video session:
- Smart Phone, Tablet, or Computer/Laptop
- Charging Cable
