Thresholds

Private Access Services

Thresholds is now able to offer its services on a private pay basis in certain locations. We can accept insurance for eligible services in our Outreach program, including psychiatry and in-home counseling and psychotherapy. We offer private pay schedules to meet the needs of the member or payer. We also have a private pay group home.

Community Based Treatment and Support

When you or someone you care about is struggling with mental health or emotional issues, the right care and support can make a tremendous difference. Although there is still much to be learned and understood about how the brain functions and about the conditions that affect the brain, we know that a holistic approach is the key to recovery. The Thresholds Private Access Program’s approach is one that recognizes and addresses the individual’s total health needs, self chosen goals and dreams, and personal values and preferences.

We work with individuals who are experiencing health conditions including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, schizophrenia, personality disorder, complicating substance abuse and dependence, OCD, and trauma. We work with persons in their homes and in their communities, whether living at home with family, independently, or in nursing homes.

The Thresholds Private Access Program, developed from Thresholds’ 55 year foundation of excellent service and leadership in mental health care, uses evidenced-based treatment modalities that provide practical support and assistance with daily living, in the context of a therapeutic partnership with the individual.

Our Methods

The Thresholds Private Access Program collaborates with third party payers and insurance companies to provide the most appropriate services available under the individual’s benefit plans.

Community Support services focus on individual goals, building life skills, and community integration. Some insurance coverage may apply.
