The Initial Appointment:
Your first visit will take approximately one hour. During this appointment you can discuss your situation and concerns with a mental health professional. After this initial appointment, an assessment and recommendation for treatment will be made. To schedule your first appointment, call 301-733-2431. Follow-up appointments are scheduled with your individual therapist. If you need to cancel an appointment, please notify us as soon as possible.
Our policy is that each client must first have an intake completed with one of our clinical therapists and initiate on-going treatment prior to scheduling an appointment with our psychiatrist. We firmly believed that our services complement one another and that your success depends on your attendance and participation in therapy in addition to your prescription medications. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Should you miss more than 3 appointments with your therapist, within a 6 week period, you may be discharged from our care.
Prescription Medications: Our psychiatrist may write prescriptions at the time of your initial psychiatric appointment. If a refill is needed between appointments, please call your pharmacy directly. The pharmacist will call us for approval. Please allow at least two days for this process.
We accept all forms of Maryland Medicaid including: the red and white card, United Health Care, Amerigroup, Priority Partners and others. Medicare and private insurance are not accepted at this time.
