Background

West Georgia Counseling and Assessment Services is a family focused, community based social service agency that provides a variety of services to those with substance abuse, mental health and family issues. We work with a diverse population including children, youth, and adults.

The state of Georgia is the primary funder of our services through local DFACS offices. Through them we receive money from the Department of Human Resources to provide specific services. In 2014 we were able to provide an extensive amount of service using our current contractors. In April 2014 our agency implemented the use of CARF standards in our daily operations with a goal to have a survey by them in late 2015. The state of Georgia is requiring its providers to become an accredited entity in order to provide services under Medicaid, Amerigroup, or other private insurance agencies. Our agency’s strategic plan outlines our intent to be a provider under Medicaid and Amerigroup and accreditation is a significant step toward this goal. Our agency felt that CARF was the best fit for the accreditation of the services we provide.

Also in 2014 our agency changed leadership when the owner of the business at the beginning of the fiscal year sold the agency to its current owner.
