After I contact Necco, what happens next?
We will make an appointment at a time that is convenient for you. A licensed clinician will meet with you and your child to discuss the current needs and complete a comprehensive assessment. After the initial evaluation, we will schedule counseling and case management as appropriate.
HOW DOES COUNSELING WORK?
Counseling is not an exact science and everyone responds differently. Some children need only a few sessions while others might need support for much longer. The counselor will tailor their approach to the child. Play therapy, art therapy, or traditional talk therapy may all be used depending on the child. Additionally, depending on the identified needs, sessions may be one-on-one with the child or involve the entire family.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CASE MANAGEMENT AND COUNSELING?
Many times we assign both a therapist and a case manager to a client. The counselor is responsible for treating any mental health, emotional or behavioral needs that may be present. The case manager will help connect the family with community resources to support both the child and the family as a whole.
WHAT IS THE COST OF COUNSELING?
Counseling is accessible and affordable. Since every insurance plan is different, check with your insurance company before your first appointment to learn what they will cover. There is no cost for counseling for any of the Medicaid MCOs.
SUPPORT SETS NECCO APART
In most cases, scheduling occurs within a week of the first phone call or referral to us. We understand that every child is different. Our case managers and clinicians are responsive and will communicate with you about your child's progress and your concerns.
