Some people even in our own agency do not know much about Comprehensive in Klickitat County. We are located in the southern part of Washington State in the scenic Columbia Gorge. In 1998 Comprehensive starting providing mental health services in Klickitat County and we opened offices in White Salmon and Goldendale which are about 50 miles apart.
In 2004 we started providing substance use disorder treatment at both sites. Currently we have 21 staff people working in mental health, substance use disorder treatment, WISe services and Health Homes Care Transition. Many of our staff work at both offices so we are often traveling to see our clients, meet with community partners and to work at different offices. Crisis staff often are out to two small hospitals in our county Skyline Hospital in White Salmon and Klickitat Valley Health in Goldendale.
We provide a wide range of services locally and also utilize other agency resources in Yakima County to meet the needs of our communities. Because we are located on the state line we often are coordinating care with others in “The Gorge” which includes many larger and smaller towns in both Oregon and Washington. Many of our clients have healthcare providers in both states.
