Services

We want to be your medical home. One of our doctors or nurse practitioners can be you primary care provider and take care of you when you are sick or work with you to stay well.  Yearly checkups are just as important as going to the doctor when you are sick. We take care of people of all ages—birth through seniors.

We also offer prenatal and OB care for pregnant women, care for new babies and women’s health (GYN).

Our dental care team offers general family dentistry for all ages.

We also have behavioral health care—with social workers (MSWs) and psychologists (MA, MS or PhD). They can assist with access to psychiatric services, which are can be done on site by “tele-psychiatry” which uses technology similar to Skype that is privacy protected.  We also have treatment programs (MAT) to help people with opiate use disorder.

A big difference in how WWFHC cares for you and your family are our community health workers/care managers. You can partner with them to help figure out how you can be healthier. We have classes about how to take care of yourself if you have a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure plus fitness and cooking classes.

Integrated Health Care at WWFHC

WWFHC

Integrated Health Care at Western Wayne Family Health Centers means we take care of all your health needs in one place…medical, OB-GYN, pediatrics, behavioral health, and dental services. Your physical and mental health are connected, so we have all the care you need.

This means all providers work together to address your health and wellness needs.

Behavioral Health care addresses how physical health affects your mental health and emotional well-being. We have a team of behavioral health therapists and a psychiatrist to assist our patients with their mental health concerns. You can seek behavioral health services to learn coping skills to decrease anxiety, manage stress, address grief and loss, decrease symptoms of depression, and address past and present trauma/traumatic experiences.

You will need to get your primary medical care at WWFHC to also get your therapy, psychiatric medications and/or MAT medications with us.

Telepsychiatric Services

Our centers provide tele-psychiatric services. This is in partnership with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Wayne State University. After completing an assessment with one of our therapists, patients are able to connect with our psychiatrist through a computer (through an app like Skype) to be evaluated and prescribed for psychiatric medication needs, with their mental health professional in the room for support. The Psychiatrist collaborates with the WWFHC medical providers and therapists to address both  your medical and mental health needs. This “holistic” care means that we understand that your physical and mental health are often interconnected and take care of the whole person.

Therapy at WWFHC

WWFHC has a team of behavioral health therapists, substance abuse therapists, and case coordinators. Patients that are seen by a medical provider at WWFHC, can be referred to a Behavioral Health Therapists to address acute symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, grief/loss, and trauma. For patients that have chronic and severe mental health needs, our Behavioral Health Therapist will assist in transferring mental health services to a higher level of care in the community.

There are Behavioral Health Therapists at all three sites – Inkster, Taylor, and Lincoln Park.  Please ask your medical provider how to be referred to behavioral health services.

Care Coordinators at WWFHC

Many times, what you need to take care of yourself is just a little support or ideas of other places in the community that can help you. Our Care Coordinators can do that. They can give you referrals for agencies that can help with other needs that effect your health, talk to you about eating better, stopping smoking or how to remember to take your medications. They are here to assist you to better manage your health and wellness. We offer many nutrition and disease management classes plus regular exercise sessions. At WWFHC, we know that there are many things that influence how you feel, and the care coordinators are ready to partner with you to take charge of your health.

Community Partners

Having good health takes more than just going to the doctor or dentist. Sometimes, families need help with other issues. WWFHC partners with other community organizations to help all community members get assistance with things like utility assistance, to transition out of nursing facilities to home, debt management, early childhood education, counseling, family violence, job placement, substance abuse treatment, case management for people with HIV, mental health and pretty much anything else you can think of. These organizations are good places to start with a large variety of your needs.
