    Health Insurance:

    We are in network with most health insurance companies that operate in this area. We do all the billing and authorizations.  Your insurance will usually pay for counseling and assessments. Give them a call and ask if you are not sure. Our self-pay rate for clients without insurance is $20/hour for group counseling, except long term aftercare.

    We do everything we can to assist you with receiving the counseling or treatment you need.  If paying for treatment is a concern, we will assist with deductibles, co-pays, etc. Our assessments are very affordable.  There are no upfront fees preventing you from getting into treatment, both our in-person office visits and our online counseling services.

    We will contact your insurance company for authorization and benefits.  To save you money, it is sometimes helpful for you to call your insurance to ensure they assist you with paying for treatment.
