    Do I need to have a mental health or addiction diagnosis in order to use my insurance?

    Yes, you do need to have a diagnosis in order to use your insurance benefits but you do not need to have a serious psychological condition to use your insurance benefits. There two different types of mental health diagnoses. There are serious diagnoses such as bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and schizophrenia. There are mild diagnoses such as adjustment disorder and prolonged grief disorder.  Adjustment disorder is the clinical term that is used to say that an individual is going through a difficult time.  Adjustment disorder is caused by stressful situations such as grief, marriage problems, stressful job, bullying, relocation, and health problems. It is psychologically necessary for these individuals to see a therapist because they are at an increased risk of developing a mental health condition such as major depressive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder.  

    I do not have a diagnosis and I do not feel comfortable with being diagnosed.  Can I still see a therapist? 

    Yes, you can still see a therapist. However, you will not be able use your health insurance benefits. You pay out-of-pocket or you can use an EAP (Employer Assistance Program) benefit. Some of our therapists offer therapy at a discounted rate to individuals and families that are experiencing a financial hardship. 

    How do I get diagnosed?

    You can get diagnosed with a mental health condition by seeing a medical provider such as a primary care doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. You also get diagnosed by a mental health provider such as a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, psychologist, and a licensed master’s level clinician. 

    We do have staff that are qualified to provide you with a diagnosis for some mental health conditions. However, we might refer you out to an outside provider such as a psychiatrist or neuropsychologist if we suspect that you have a more complicated mental health condition. 

    I do not want to take medication.  Can I do therapy instead of taking medication?

    Every person is different. There are some people that are able to manage their mental health without take medication.  Some people can manage their mental health through life style changes such as diet, exercise, and stress management. However, there are some people with serious mental health conditions that do need to take medication in order to function in society.  Therapy is not a substitute for medication management.
