To meet the needs of the LGBTQ community, Resource Center has added to its well-established services of medical support and transgender care, and now provides primary medical care. The medical services are “a community health center for the LGBTQ community and allies in North Texas,” according to Dr. Gene Voskuhl who heads up the clinic.

Primary care services include treatment for chronic conditions, HIV treatment, PrEP access, STI treatment, general care, hypertension, weight loss, diabetes, flu shots and vaccinations and smoking cessation.

Major insurance and self-pay accepted.

Provider info: Dr. Gene Voskuhl graduated from the University of Oklahoma, where he specialized in infectious diseases and eventually helped launch the University’s HIV Clinic. He later worked at Gilead (the manufacturer of PrEP medication Truvada) as a medical scientist, instructing fellow physicians on how to safely treat LGBTQ patients and prescribe appropriate pharmaceuticals. Volunteering for the Center gave him an even deeper insight into the needs of the LGBTQ and HIV populations in North Texas, and further fanned the flames of his passion towards equity in healthcare. “Providing primary care at Resource Center will help us close the gap between a diagnosis and immediate treatment. Until now, if a patient was diagnosed with HIV or an STI at Nelson-Tebedo, our current testing facility, we referred that patient to another physician for treatment. Now, we can get that patient on a treatment plan within 24 hours and on the pathway to immediate care in a familiar and welcoming environment, free of stigma,” says Dr. Voskuhl.

Everyone experiences mental health issues. The number of people taking time off work due to mental health or substance abuse issues is on the rise. As a working professional, you are a valuable contributor to your own personal mental health, financial security, and work-place satisfaction.

Whether you require treatment to keep your job, license or certificate, work related stress, job burnout, or dealing with non-work related psychosocial issues like depression, anxiety and substance abuse, the IOP is structured so individuals can remain off work on FMLA or continue work if needed while participating in the program.

The Working Professional will participate in either the Adult Mental Health IOP or Adult Substance Abuse IOP. Programs are offered in both daytime and evening hours, and treatment length and programming days will be tailored to fit your personal specialty needs between optimal mental health and work re-entry.

The Program staff and working professional will develop an individualized treatment plan, explore return to work options and choices, cope with emotional aspects or issues related to work, and help structure a healthier life balance in work, family and home.

Most working adults qualify for family medical leave of absence (FMLA) from work. The program clinical staff are trained in assisting with FMLA and disability paperwork among your employer, human resources, EAP’s and other authorized personnel.

Clients will develop the skills for a successful workplace re-entry and the confidence to handle first day back on the job.

Family Participation

The Resource Center recognizes the value in the client’s healing process from supportive family and friends. All IOP programs offer a weekly 1.5 hour group education component, designed to increase overall understanding of mental health issues and provide opportunities for specific skills training. Although highly encouraged, family participation not necessary for IOP enrolment.

Complimentary Assessment

Take the first step - call to schedule a complimentary evaluation and assessment with one of our healthcare professionals during office hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Your complimentary assessment determines a course of treatment specifically tailored to meet your needs.

We offer flexible appointments, in a comfortable, safe, and no pressure environment.

The Behavioral Health Department accepts most major insurance providers and helps you navigate coverage options to ensure you maximize your available benefits. Based on the program or service, with some insurances plans, there may be no out-of-pocket cost to you.
