How Catholic Charities Helps
Charities provides outpatient counseling programs to persons with
mental health issues.
counseling is beneficial for:
— persons who are depressed or
have anxiety. Clients have the option
of seeing a psychiatrist as well as a counselor, if medication may be helpful.
— individuals in recovery from
substance abuse. Counseling supports a
client’s abstinence, helps him/her avoid relapse, and makes it easier for a
client to deal with underlying issues that were “medicated” by addiction.
— couples going through stress
in their relationship who need to improve communication skills.
— families whose children are
experiencing behavioral problems.
— individuals who have a sudden
change in their life, such as job loss, death of a loved one, or a physical
Catholic Charities provides
counseling services to anyone for whom outpatient treatment is the right
choice, regardless of your ability to pay.
We are able to accept most third party insurance, and Medicaid and
Medicare. If you do not have insurance,
we have a sliding scale to make counseling affordable.
Charities takes great care to accept clients in critical situations as quickly
as possible. We will assign you to a
therapist immediately, given the availability of clinicians. We arrange first
appointments as quickly as possible.
first appointment will be longer than usual so your counselor can do a thorough
assessment. If you require a
psychiatric evaluation, we will schedule this meeting after your first session
with your counselor.
When you call our office, our
intake worker can make a referral to appropriate services if outpatient
counseling does not meet your needs.
Clients of Catholic Charities
are protected by the confidentiality requirements of federal law, specifically
HIPAA (the Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability
Act). This means that your
counselor or any Catholic Charities staff cannot let anyone know that you are a
client or divulge any information about you without your written consent.
