Adults can get free counseling at clinic

Crescent Community Clinic, 5244 Commercial Way, now offers free counseling for mental health and behavioral issues to uninsured adults ages 18 to 64 who meet federal income guidelines. The nonprofit, volunteer clinic is now scheduling appointments to see a psychiatrist or psychologist at a Monday or Saturday clinic. This service is not for those who abuse alcohol or drugs, nor is it for those seeking narcotics, as the clinic does not prescribe narcotics. To schedule an appointment to complete paperwork, people are asked to call (352) 610-9916.
