Accessing our Services

Alexander Youth Network provides a wide array of programs and services accessible in many locations throughout the Western, Central, and Piedmont regions of North Carolina. Visit Our Services page to find the service that best fits your child’s needs.

Completing an Assessment

If your child does not have a Comprehensive Clinical Assessment, then he or she will need one to determine the best treatment option for their care.

There are three ways to receive an assessment:

  • Call (855) 362-8470 to schedule an assessment. Please note that we do not schedule more assessments more than 5 days in advance.
  • If you’re local to Mecklenburg County, we offer walk-in assessments on a first-come, first-served basis at our Child and Family Therapy Office located at 5855 Executive Center Drive, Suite 111, Charlotte, NC 28212, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Fill out our referral form and email it to or fax it to (704 )362-6751 and one of our intake coordinators will call you to set up an appointment.

Accessing Alexander as a Care Manager

  • Parents who have not been initially assigned Alexander Youth Network as a care manager can choose to switch to Alexander Youth Network to manage their child’s wellness needs.
  • For more information, visit our Care Management page or email
