All new clients at Better Living Center for Behavioral Health start their treatment path with an ‘intake’ session. This session helps us determine diagnoses, treatment plan, and recommended level of care.
Intake sessions scheduled for up to two hours, the second hour is reserved for orienting clients who may need higher level care (Intensive Outpatient or Day Treatment) to those programs. If your anxiety symptoms are not particularly severe, your appointment is likely to last 50 minutes.
Before your appointment, you should arrive at least 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork or fill out paperwork online and submit it prior to your appointment. Should you not complete paperwork prior to your appointment your appointment time will not be extended, and may be shorter than 50 minutes.
Intake appointments typically cost $150 (whether they are 1 or 2 hours in length). We accept some Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, however, for your first session you will typically pay the full fee and we will refund any amount overpaid should your insurance cover the session appropriately.
For ‘self-pay’ or ‘out-of-network’ insurances, you will be asked to pay the intake fee.
