Appointments and Referrals FAQ's

How are referrals made?

You may call our office directly at (603) 444-6465 or (888) 999-5009 for an appointment for yourself or your minor child. You may also call to refer a friend or adult relative, in which case we will help you determine options for your loved ones and encourage them to call us directly for an appointment.

Referrals can also be made by doctors, hospitals, the courts, schools, treatment providers, and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) participants who recognize a need for services.

How can I schedule my first appointment?

Call our office Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:30 pm.

When your call comes in, our receptionist will take some general information including your phone number, best times to reach you, and your general areas of concern.

If you feel that your situation is urgent and needs an immediate response, please let the receptionist know and every effort will be made to connect you with a clinician. Otherwise, you will be contacted within 48 hours by our Intake Coordinator to set up your appointment.

The Intake Coordinator will need your address, date of birth, and other relevant information in order to schedule an appointment with one of our clinicians.

During non-office hours, or if the line is busy, please leave a message with our answering service that includes your name, and a phone number so that we can reach you.

If you are not yet an established client and are having an emergency during after hours, please call 911 for immediate assistance.

We understand that this initial phone call can be stressful and uncomfortable. Asking for help can be the most important and the most difficult step in dealing with your concerns. Our staff will guide you through the process.

What can I expect to happen during my visits?

Your first visit is called an Intake Appointment and lasts longer than other appointments, typically 75 minutes. During this time your therapist will gather a detailed history, get an understanding of your needs, and work with you to develop a treatment plan.

Subsequent visits will be shorter (45-50 minutes) and will focus on helping you meet the goals and objectives of your treatment plan.

How will I pay for services?

We have contracts with many area health insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid. Our business office will verify benefits and eligibility and obtain the authorizations necessary for treatment. We will submit all claims and will go over with you any co-pays or deductible costs for which you are responsible.

If you do not have health insurance or would rather self-pay for your visits, we also accept cash or credit card payments.

Individuals who are unable to afford the cost of services and who lack adequate insurance coverage can make arrangements for self-pay fees, which are set according to income levels. Center for New Beginnings does not refuse services to anyone based on the inability to pay.

What if an urgent situation occurs after hours?

We have a staff member on call 24 hours every day to deal with our current clients' emergencies.

After your initial intake appointment, your clinician will give you the number to call for our answering service after hours. Leave a message with your name and number at which you can be reached and the therapist on duty will return your call. They will work out a suitable plan with you, or if needed, direct you to the emergency department at your local hospital.

Call 911 directly if you are in a life-threatening situation.

Will my records be kept confidential?

Of course! We realize that confidentiality is of utmost importance.

The United States has stringent laws and regulations to protect the privacy of health records, to which we strictly adhere.
