Outpatient Mental Health

What is the Outpatient Mental Health Program?

The Outpatient Mental Health Program’s goal is to assist individuals experiencing any number of life stressors through the use of a variety of interventions.  NTC provides Outpatient Mental Health Services to Bradford, Sullivan and Tioga Counties as well as other surrounding counties and residents of New York State.   These services include diagnostic assessment, individual, group, couples and family therapy.  Levels of Care Assessments are completed as requested by the court system.

Treatment in the Mental Health program can include various interventions based upon the needs of the participant.  Some interventions may include:

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Gradual Exposure Therapy, Grief and Bereavement support, and Rational Emotive Therapy.

We also provide various group interventions.  We are currently offering a Parenting Group and Anger Management Group

Therapy services are provided by experienced Mental Health Professionals including Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Social Workers and Masters Level Clinicians.

 

Our Intake Process – OPEN ACCESS CLINICS

We believe strongly that people should not have to wait for their services when they have made the decision to seek treatment.  Because of this belief, we operate TWO OPEN ACCESS Clinics each week out of our N. Towanda office.  Our OPEN ACCESS Clinics run on Tuesdays from 8:00am- to 10:30am and again on Thursdays from 12:00pm to 2:30pm.   The OPEN ACCESS Clinic therapist will meet with you and work with you to identify a treatment plan that best meets your needs.

To begin your intake process we ask that you please call our Intake Department at 1-888-322-1682 Option 3 to review your insurance plan or to make payment arrangements.
