  • The Zoom Intake
    Our administrative staff will schedule a 30-minute Zoom intake session for you with a Clinic Coordinator. During the intake, the Coordinator will collect information about you and your treatment needs in order to determine whether our services would be appropriate for your concerns and if so, how we are most likely to help you. The Clinic Director will review information from the Zoom intake, and we will contact you within one week following your intake to discuss plans for your treatment.
