Potential Barriers to Services

  • The Next Chapter does not have clinicians that are fluent in other languages.  Appropriate referrals will be made to a program that can accommodate language barriers.

  • The Next Chapter does not provide transportation to any client outside of the City of Wichita area.

  • The Next Chapter does not provide services for urine drug screening and any necessary testing is requested from an outside lab and at the client’s expense. 

  • The Next Chapter does not have male clinicians at this time. A referral will be made to an appropriate treatment provider should these deem necessary.

  • The Next Chapter has one clinician on staff and schedules are established by appointment only. 

Contracted Service Providers

  • The Next Chapter provides mental health services outside of substance abuse services.  Each clinician housed within the office is independent of The Next Chapter, which may not be substance abuse service-related, and further bound by confidentiality.  A full list will be posted in the office area for public review.
