There are challenging times ahead, but Shoreline Behavioral Health Services is committed to serving our clients and community through them. Like most everyone across our nation, we have been monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 virus. Our priority will always be for the health and safety of the clients we serve, our employees and the community as a whole. We have made the decision to suspend all group sessions and open access (walk-in) times until further notice.
Starting March 26th, Shoreline will be closed to the public. New client appointments are limited to emergency situations only as deemed by a clinical staff member. We will continue seeing current clients on an appointment only basis via telehealth. Please call 843-365-8884 to schedule your telehealth session today.
Clients on Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) are a special priority for us because of the risk of accidental death due to overdose. Any client in need of medication in order to help with withdrawal from opioid drugs, please call us immediately. During this time of additional stress, Shoreline is trying to get Narcan to anyone who needs it. Narcan is a lifesaving drug that can help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. We are still able to give out Narcan during this time. Please call our office to find out how you can get Narcan. 843-365-8884
