Department of Basic Services sends people over to be assets. When they are being investigated also the courts send people down to be assets. Aside for mental abuse they also do substance abuse. Also have parenting classes. Anyone who wants treatment, we will find a way to help them.
3) Agency’a s funding source and organizational structure.
They do all insurances plus Medicaid. What we get from Medicaid we balance out what we don’t get from some of our clients that can’t pay. A big bunch of people that pay cash out of pocket is also put in helping the ones who can’t pay. They go by a sliding scale on how much the client makes. If they have no or little money coming in, some will pay zero. Sometimes when they have money coming in and can’t afford our regular fee, we drop it even further, which balances it all out.

Then they have clinical coordinator at the top servicing all the counties. This person is over 5 counties, Powell, Estill, Madison, Bourbon, and Montgomery.
