Your first visit to Carey Counseling Center, Inc. will take about two hours. During this time, an intake will be done by one of our masters-level therapist. During the intake process, you will be asked a series of questions regarding yourself and some background information. It is important to us that we fully understand what brings you to CAREY and what you hope to accomplish through your experience with us.
If you are using insurance to pay for services, make sure you bring the following items to your first visit:
• your insurance card
• a photo ID
If you are bringing in a child for treatment, you must be the legal guardian. Please bring in a birth certificate for the child, along with custody paperwork (if applicable) and a matching photo ID proving you have guardianship.
Carey Counseling Center, Inc. provides counseling, medical services, and case management. All services are voluntary. You have the right to accept or refuse any services at CAREY. The risks and benefits of treatment will be explained at the time of service.
Except in rare and specific circumstances, conversations with your service provider will be confidential. However, confidentiality may be broken if there is an immediate threat to safety (yours or others) or when required by state or federal law to report concerns to authorities. Feel free to ask any questions about our confidentiality policy.
