We have offices located in Edison, Monmouth Junction, New Brunswick and Newark. We are a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC). As a CCBHC, we provide comprehensive and integrated care, with an emphasis on coordination and linkage to medical and community resources.
Referrals are accepted for a range of presenting problems, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, reactions to stress and trauma, attentional difficulties, learning difficulties, behavior problems, and social skills problems. Appointments are made by calling the Access Center (1-800-969-5300). Our multi-disciplinary and bi-lingual (English-Spanish, English-Portuguese) staff consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, and mental health specialists.
During the initial appointment, the assigned clinician will meet with the youth and primary care giver. The clinician takes a history and makes an assessment of the nature of the problem. Children are then assigned for one or more of a variety of treatment modalities: intensive outpatient services, individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, medication evaluation and monitoring. In addition, full psychological evaluations may be recommended by the child's clinician to further assess the child's educational and treatment needs.
Assistance is available in providing referrals for other services, and staff work closely with other agencies, including the schools, to develop a plan that best meets the needs of the child. Parent/caregiver participation is expected and welcomed in all aspects of treatment.
