Access: Supports for Living: Adults and children struggling with addiction or mental health concerns can walk in to the Access: Supports for Living Urgent Care.  Worried about your insurance or ability to pay?  Don’t worry.  Everybody is welcome, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. You don’t need an appointment or a referral. A compassionate team will welcome you or your child to the Urgent Care, work with you to figure out what’s happening, and begin a plan for recovery, including referrals to the community provider of your choice for longer-term care, if that’s what you need.
